Sc. Jungle Flare

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.

RE: Sc. Jungle Flare

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.

RE: Sc. Jungle Flare

Sc. Jungle Flare should read - Lc. Jungle Flare.

My best guess is that it could bloom at anytime of the year.


RE: Sc. Jungle Flare

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.

RE: Sc. 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!
