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 nicely compact plant. We grow this plant both indoors with our intermediate growing Cattleyas
as well as outdoors with our Cymbidiums
. Known to some as the Christmas blooming Cattleya
. . Temperature Tolerant. December blooming. Species from Venezuela.
