Environment

The cattleya orchids like bright light and will not flower without plenty of light. They can even be acclimated to some direct sunlight, although avoid direct summer sunlight. In the right light conditions, the leaves are apple green. Darker leaves can indicate too little light, while yellow or brown leaves can indicate too much direct sunlight.

Water the orchids enough to keep them moist but not soggy. Soggy plants tend to rot. You can prevent this by using a chunky bark medium or other gritty soil that doesn't hold onto moisture. These orchid plants need 80 percent humidity, In order to raise the level of humidity, spray Vanda orchids with cool water by using a spraying bottle or by a humidifier or spritzing the air. They flourish under overhead irrigation and bright sunlight.
