A very difficult to get Brazilian species, and even more difficult is to get selected batches as this one. Species is one of those that do not like long spells of hot weather, so keep the plants under a bit more shade than most Cattleya species when conditions are warm. Parent plant pictured.

Is velutina culture similar to schilleriana?I have read that it is tricky to grow

Cattleya velutina is a cooler grower than schilleriana. What I mean with that is not that it needs cooler temperatures, but that it doesn't tolerate long periods of high temps (above 85-90 degrees F). Removing that temperature factor, it actually is an easier grower than schilleriana as it is well-behaved in pots. Keep in mind it grows much taller than schilleriana. Hope that helps.
