Cattleya Little Elf
This is a fun primary hybrid between Cattleya praestans and Cattleya ruprestris. It has retained much of its rupicolous Laelia "look" but is easier to grow and bloom thanks to Cattleya praestans. Star shaped, 1.5-2'' purple flowers with yellow throats are produced on spikes held above the foliage. Each spike produces 1-5 flowers reliably in winter with secondary spikes in late summer possible on mature plants. Available as blooming size plants in 3.5'' pots. Shipped in spike if available.
