The Cambria does not occur in nature but is a cross between different types of orchids, this is the Odontoglossum, Cochlioda, Miltonia, Oncidium and Brassia. The first Cambria (the Vuylsteeara Plush) was developed around 1900 by the Belgian Charles Vuylsteke
Appearance of the Cambria Orchid The cambria orchids are vastly varied in size and shape: from one and a half centimeters to over ten centimeters and from star-shaped to almost round. The flowers are beautifully drawn. The colors brown, red and purple carry the upper tone, but there are also pink, and orange Cambria orchids and even a small number of white and yellow with brown-purple drawing.
Put the Cambria Orchid in a light place, but not directly in the sun. The average flowering time is six weeks. Dip the Cambria Orchid (about 5 to 10 min.) In summer once a week and in winter once every eight to ten days.
In summer, indicate the amount of food indicated on the package. In the winter, once every two months, half of it.
The Cambria thrives best at temperatures between 15 and 25˚C.
If the Cambria is bleeding, you can cut the old branch in its entirety and treat it in the same way as during bloom. The Cambria can grow again after about nine months. The plant develops one or more new shoots. When a new shoot has grown, a hard green disc, a kind of spotlight, is created. To create new buttons, the cambria needs a rest period from the moment the sham is completely hard and filled. Give less water for eight weeks: once every two weeks is enough. Put the Cambria during this period in a place where it is 15 to 17˚C, but not in the dark. Give more water when the new flower stem is visible. The Cambria then returns to his old place.
Cambria Orchids can stand outside in spring and summer, but not in the sun. The temperature should not be below 9˚C. If the pot is fully grown, you can repel the Cambria. Use only Orchid soil with a large amount of bark (Orchid soil). Give the Cambria extra food for the first two months after batting.
A light spot without direct sunlight. A window to the north or a shield of the sun would be fine.
Cambria, again something different!
