Anyone have this in their collection, and tell me when it blooms? Bought this as a baggie seedling years ago, but haven't managed to provide the needed environment for maturation. Pictures online look pretty.
I do not know when it flowers but a glance at its pedigree brings up a couple of suspects that might make it need slightly different conditions from the "average cattleya" to make it bloom.
I am talking about C. aclandiae and C. esalquena (L. esalqueana). Which might make the plant need a sparse mixture and high light to do its best. Only guessing.
Sc. Jungle Flare should read - Lc. Jungle Flare.
My best guess is that it could bloom at anytime of the year.
It certainly could bloom anytime of year because it has multiple "cattleya" ancestors. After the great renaming the Lc. bit is a synonym and its name is plain old Cattleya Jungle Flare.
The original tag does have Lc. x C. on it, but in researching online I thought I interpreted that the Laelia ancestry had been changed to the Sophro. designation. Calling it just Cattleya adds more confusion to my mucho maligned brain cells. Calgon, take me away!
