Cattleya percivaliana var. miniatum
Dont let the varietal name of this Venezuelan species fool you. The flowers are large and showy, but produced on a nice compact plant. We grow this plant both in with our intermediate growing cattleyas as well as out with our cymbidiums. Known to some as the Christmas blooming cattleya. Temperature Tolerant. December blooming. Species from Venezuela.
