What type of Orchid is this
This is a Cattleya orchid. Cattleya orchids are an evergreen tropical orchid. Grow this orchid outdoors during the summer in good light and indoors during the winter at a bright window or under lights. Or maybe in Sarasota County you can grow this orchid outdoors in the winter. I move my orchids indoor if the temperature stay below 55 degrees at night. Move the orchid plant where you will enjoy the flower when in bloom.
