Cattleya warscewiczii var. sanderiana x sib seedling Male
Default Cattleya warscewiczii var. sanderiana x sib seedling

A month ago, I've bought a very tiny seedling of C. warscewiczii. The label says it is a sibling cross between two var. Sanderiana clones (C.H.#2 x C.H #1), from Taiwan (C.H. would mean Ching-Hua orchid nursery in Taiwan, I presume). Anyway, after carefully discarding sphagnum moss from the roots, I've put the tiny seedling in semi hydro set up, with pumice as the substrate...and it seems to like it.

It's now sending up three new growths...this guy is definitely doing great.

The roots are also growing nicely.

It would take years before it could bloom, so let's hope I keep it growing well.

BTW, one of the growths has two leaves instead of one, but some unifoliate species can have two leaves when they are very young, so it would be no big deal.

That's certainly true ----- which makes me sometimes question the term unifoliate for particular orchids placed under the 'unifoliate' category, when some clearly have 2 leaves sometimes ------ or for at least some of the time.

Nice to see a good start for this juvenile orchid! I can see the algae beginning to form, which I'm not a big fan of. But - whatever works nicely for very long periods of time ----- is good! Great growing!

Looks great! I'm curious to see how this one progresses over time!

And, some of the bi-foliate will sometimes produce 3 leaves on a growth.

What a happy camper

Some of my warscewiczii plants are in semi hydro as well and doing quite well, especially at this time when they are all waking up. The ones potted in bark, not so much.
