Rhyncholaeliocattleya Tainan Gold
This hybrid (Blc. Toshie Aoki x Blc. Waianae Princess) produces deep yellow 6-inch flowers with a hint of scarlet on the outer tip of the petals. The lip is deep scarlet red and has a rich velvety texture. There is a nice citrus fragrance and the flowers have good substance lasting 6-8 weeks.
Medium light from 1500 to 3500 footcandles being ideal. East windows are fine in summer months in the Northern or Southern hemispheres but once late fall sets in a south window is better to continue growth and enhance flowering.
50% or higher is ideal. The use of humidity trays or room humidifiers is beneficial.
It is best to use rainwater, distilled or reverse osmosis water. Municipal water with a pH of 7.5 or lower can also be used. Water when the mix approaches dryness. In winter months allow the mix to become just dry between watering during active growth or flowering. At other times allow the mix to become just dry between watering.
Overwatering can cause several problems such as root rot and infectious bacteria/fungus in the potting medium.
Use a 20-10-20 Ureafree for municipal or well water. Use at the rate of ½ teaspoon per gallon. If using GrowMore with rain, distilled, or reverse osmosis water, add back in 5 - 10% municipal or well water to supply the necessary calcium and magnesium. Fertilize every other watering in the summer and every third watering in the winter.

(Tainan Gold 'Golden Oriole')
Eye popping color on 4” flowers ! A more compact grower than most of the standard yellow Cattleyas, it can produce three large golden flowers on each inflorescence, each accented with wine red flaring. Its huge and bold ruffled wine red lip, touched with gold veining, adds to its overall impact. Extremely fragrant flowers with firm substance and a sparkling texture. Highly Recommended !
