Plant my cattleya

Place your cattleya orchid in your home (18-22 ┬░), in front of a sunny window, at less than one meter, so that it gets most of the little light that is available in winter. In summer, avoid direct light.

Water my cattleya

Water with non-calcareous water in the morning, every 6 to 10 days depending on the season. Drain well. You can also sometimes spray the surface of the pot and the outer roots once between two waterings.
