Brassavola hybrids are widely sought after, exotic orchids that enjoy bright indirect to direct light and frequent watering in the Summer months. Also commonly called the "Lady of the Night" orchid, Brassavola nodosa is native to Panama and has an intoxicating aroma only at night to attract moths as pollinators. The understated, star-shaped flowers are well known as having one of the most attractive scents in the orchid world and are prized as collector plants. Brassocattleyas are Brassavola/Cattleya crosses with green and purple blooms, long turgid leaves, and a light night time fragrance. A good choice for beginner growers looking for a hardy lightly fragrant orchid for a sunny window or for intermediate growers interested in an easily mounted orchid.
