Slc. Orchid Hybrids and Their Care

Written by

Note: Sophrolaeliocattleya (Slc.) (so - fro - lay - lee - oh - KAT - lee - yuh) and Cattlianthe (Ctt.) are synonyms.  "Cattlianthe" is the recognized name.

 

"Slc." is the abbreviation used to describe hybrid orchids with parentage from three species: sophronitis, laelia and cattleya. These flowers are also sometimes called "sophrolaeliocattleya" orchids. The various hybrids usually have the yellow, orange or red flowers of sophronitis orchids, but they are considered to be part of the cattleya alliance when it comes to orchid culture, according to Argus Orchids.
