    Default Lc Jungle Eyes

    This is a first bloom for me.I find them hard to grow & flower--possibly due to the aclandiae influence.They seem to be very particular to the potting mix as well.I'm not sure what they want I tried them a few times & they croaked but this one kept in the original mix of the way I got it (H& R) bloomed.
    I wish you could buy the same mix as they use!!! I have a couple mtd but they are slow growing not as vigorous but putting out nice roots.Maybe they will catch up.I was determined to get one to bloom!!!! I love the little minicats

    Almost looks like a Phal wearing 1 off those Groucho Marks novelty moustaches.

    Very striking.

    If they're hard for you to flower then I won't even try. Very adorable and lots of character on that one, Jane.

    Wow, I'm normally not such a catt guy, but that flower is GORGEOUS. So is it always considered a more difficult one to grow?

    John-notice I said 'for me' it's always been difficult I'm sure there are others who have no trouble.It's the aclandiae (spotted) part I think that's the stickler for me but who knows.The cross of Jungle Elf is L esalqueana X C aclandiae.

    I've heard that aclandiae is highly temperamental. There was an article in some magazine a while back advocating growing them on *horizontal* branches. Great work, Jane!
