Cattleya Nice Holiday 'Suntopia' HCC/AOS (4" pot near blooming size)
We started these as tiny plugs a couple of years ago, but now they are filling 4 inch pots with 2 or 3 vigorous leads. Being a very compact grower these should be capable of blooming within the year. Flowering will favor fall to winter, but given the mix of species in the family tree, it can bloom at other times as well. The four inch, full flowers, are white with pale yellow shading, heavily brushed intense purple around the edges of the petals and lip. As the plants mature, they will come in clusters of 3 or 4. We intended to hold these and sell them in flower at shows, but since so many are canceled for 2020 we decided to offer them to our online customers as well. Plants of this orchid about the size we are offering are listed on Amazon for more than $80.
