    Default Unusual Cattleya lueddemanniana

    Hello everybody,

    I purchased an interesting C.lueddemanniana labelled as "C.lueddemanniana 'Jamie Stripes' x self" about half year ago. There are clones 'Jungle's Stripes' and 'Yamile' I heard of, but I did not find anything about 'Jamie Stripes'. Maybe it was misspelled. Anyway, here is how my plant looked when I got it.




    what I love in this plant is its dark color with no yellow on its lip.
    I probably should have waited until it is in bloom, but I could not (actually, the Cattleya was going to bloom on three growths, but buds on the two others dried out. A. Chadwick says in his "The classic Cattleyas" that in the United States C. lueddemanniana occasionally flower in September or October under low-light conditions, but it is definitely not my case.
    The buds today


    I will truly appreciate any comments.

    I would test the first Cattleya for virus. I don't like the color breaks on the lip...hopefully it is only the damage by insects.

    Thank you Tom. The plant was tested with Agdia Immunostrip for CymMV and ORSV. Negative. The flower was withering when I bought the Catt, this is why you can see spots on the lip.
    I am anxious for seeing the bloom. Who knows how it will be?

    Tom voiced my concern. I'm glad you had it tested.

    It will be interesting to see how these new flowers turn out.

    Beautiful flower (and a good test result).
    I look forward to the new flowers. I'll ask for Mauro Rosim advice if you want to.
