    Default Looking for a picture of Cattleya Jackwells.

    Hello everyone. I know I haven't been around much, but glad to see many people are still here. I was just curious if anyone has a picture of C. Jackwells. I have a catt that was labeled as C. Jack Cole x Louise powell, and that doesn't come up in RHS. I can find Jack Cole, but not Louise powel on RHS. Someone did some diging with orchidwiz and found that one of the parents of Jack Cole was C. Mademoiselle Louise Pauwels. So now what I am thinking is maybe the Jack Cole was crossed back to one of its parents, and maybe it was suposed to be labeled C. Jack cole x C. Mademoiselle Louise Pauwels. If so then this plant should be C. Jackwells. Here are some pictures of my plant.

    Thanks for the compliment and help everyone. I bought this girl as one of the first 2 orchids I purchased. I ordered them by phone sight unseen. I got this girl and a gongora tricolor from --------------------. This plant was in spike when I got her, but hasn't rebloomed till this bloom. I had sheaths form, but no spikes. This year she put on a show though. She likes it out in the GH. She did 4 spikes with a total of 10 flowers and they are pretty big too. 3 of the flowers are still unopened, but that still doesn't stop her from filling my living room with her scent in the morning. I mean the ENTIRE living room smells like her in the morning from the 7 flowers that are open. Very fragrent. I hope you folks can help me identify this plant since it may have been mislabeled, or give me the name of the plant that is a cross between C. Jack cole x Louise Powell. LOL Thanks for all the help.

    Hi Josh,

    C. Jackwells is a cross between (C. Jack Cole x C. Mademoiselle Louise Pauwels.) Note that C. Jack Cole is itself a cross between (C. Mademoiselle Louise Pauwels and C. Bob Betts.) Lots of incest in this one - you know, it's all relative!

    I feel quite certain that yours is a C. Jackwells. Someone got lazy in the labeling and dropped the full name for Louise Pauwels. That happens all the time. They also may have tagged it before the grex name of 'Jackwells' was registerd. Sorry I have no picture for you! She is a beauty!

    Thanks Julie. So you do feel that this would be C. Jackwells? Thats what someone over at ______________ was feeling too, but no one over there has a picture of Jackwells either. I had a feeling the mademoiselle was left off and they spelled the powell phoneticly causing the misspelling. I would feel a little more comfortable having a picture for compairison, but I will relabel it when I get home. Now I didn't find Jackwells on RHS either. Is that cross registered? I don't want to go through the hassle of finding who crossed it to give them the chance to register it IF it got awarded next year when I show it.

    I did find something interesting, but just goes to show how much light plays a role in the coloring of the flowers. The last 3 buds have opened on this plant, and of course I had the plant in the living room where it doesn;t get near the ammount of light it gets in the GH, and the last 3 buds have a greenish tint to them and the yellow is almost nonexistant. Thanks for the research! I will relabel it, and still be looking for a picture. Thanks again!

    Hi Josh,

    It was registered in 1980, so you're free to go win awards! (It hasn't yet been awarded.) From the looks of this guy, you should definitely go for it!

    After you've garnered all your ribbons, should some small division per chance fall from this beauty while you're repotting...well...I'd be willing to send you my address!

    It's all magic, Hoa! Want to know where the Lindbergh baby currently resides?

    Thanks! I will put your name on a devision of it, but just to warn you. I like specimen sized plants and this is one of the first orchids I purchased so I want to get it to an 8 or 10 inch pot. Ar the moment its only in a 6 inch pot. I like it because the runs between the pbulbs are short so it keeps the foliage close together, but a medium to full sized foliage with the large flowers. This turns out to be like my 5th white with yellow liped catts. I have one NoID that looks the same as this one bloomed out with a 6 1/2 inch across flower!! Just a little bigger than these flowers, but not as fragrent. Your down for a devision, and hopefully it will be awarded by that time. I am glad that someone answered my question, even though I didn't ask it here, if it was show worthy. It has like 4 growth points at the moment, and hopefully I can get it to do more this growing season. One thing I did find out about this girl is that she likes HIGH light to flower. I had her in almost full sun last summer. She was outside under my outdoor shelter that only has a piece of latus covering the top. I had plants hanging from the latus so that gave it some shade, but it got VERY high light. I think thats what inticed her to bloom after 2 seasons of not blooming since this is the 3rd blooming season since it bloomed last. Since I know its not my fertilizer regimen. I am lucky if I fertilize once a month. Its just a pain to do since I do it by hand. I have been trying to get better, but not yet. I want to simplify my life with an injecter, but just haven't gotten to that point yet. Thanks for all your help!! I will rename it when I get home with C. Jackwells and add its parents to my database that seriously needs updating. LMAO thats another project to do this summer. Yippie

    I tend to be lazy about fertilizing. I just don't get around to it as often as I should. So I've been adding Osmocote, a time-release fertilizer to the pots of the plants that are more fert loving. (ie - not my paphs! I've fert burned more paphs with too much lovin'!) Catts are hogs, however!
