Bifoliate Cattleyas of Brazil

June 1, 2021 @ 6:45 pm 8:30 pm

Luiz Hamilton Lima has been an aficionado of Cattleyas since age nine, when he cultivated Cattleya violacea in a lath house, built by his father, in the backyard of their home in Manaus, Amazon, Brazil. In this lecture, Luiz will review some of the most exotic Bifoliate Cattleya species of Brazil, focus on habitat and climatic conditions, discuss color forms, and give valuable practical cultivation tips for the more moderate climate growers in the USA. Luiz is an aeronautical engineer, who lives in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Sao Paulo, Brazil with his wife and an extensive Cattleya orchid collection.
