Epicattleya Rene Marques 'Flamethrower' is a cross between Epidendrum pseudepidendrum and Cattleya Claesiana resulting in a brilliant, larger pseudepi colored flower with a mature plant being up to 3 feet tall.
Epidendrum mirabile is from Costa Rica growing at 3000 to 6000 feet elevations as a large species, growing at cool to intermediate temps and 1800 to 2500 foot candles. The inflorescence has 1 to 3, 2 1/2 inch, violet flowers with a very strong fragrance.
The resulting hybrid is a vigorous grower doing best at intermediate temps and 1800 to 2500 footcandles. It has an incredibly wonderful fragrance inherited from mirabile and the colors from Rene Marques. These are blooming size divisions.
