CATTLEYA orchids have the large flowers that are often used for corsages. They come in many colours and several sizes. Older varieties bloomed once a year, but newer hybrids bloom several times a year. Cattleyas require a bright window and watering when quite dry in the summer, and very little water but bright light during the winter dormant period.
