Holiday Flowers for Years to Come
During the Holiday Seasons, we are all
so busy, that it becomes just another thing
we have to do, if we have to go out and buy
decorations for the Holidays. While
Phaleanopsis, Cymbidiums and some
Dendrobiums flower when cold induced and
Oncidiums, Paphiopedilums and Evergreen
Dendrobiums flower when their new growth
matures, their blooming seasons are not
dependable or always predictable.
Cattleyas, on the other hand, have a
photo period, meaning, they flower on a
certain length of daylight. So when you buy
a Cattleya that has just opened, next
year's flowers should start to open, within a
two week window of the previous years
blooms. Other factors such as supplemental
lights (even an incandescent bulb nearby),
temperature and whether we have several
cloudy weeks contribute to the two week
time frame. Buying Cattleyas now, will
provide beautiful Holiday decorations for
years to come, during the same seasonal
time period.
