    Default Catamodes between Morm. buccinator and Ctsm. sanguineum?

    Anyone here experienced in Catasetinae breeding?

    So I was googling around for Catamodes crosses using Morm. buccinator but I couldn't find any on the two registers I searched. Is there a reason this set of crosses hasn't been pursued? I think it could have interesting results.

    I recently bought a 2 pbulb division of Morm. buccinator (green sepals & petals, white lip form) and an 8 pbulb division of Ctsm. sanguineum. They should both bloom later in the year I'm thinking, and they're starting new growths now.

    I have a basic idea of the form the flowers might take by looking at pictures of other Catamodes, but that's as much as I know about crosses like this.

    Do you guys think I should attempt this cross? It will be my first hybrid if I do.
    I don't want to take the time, effort and money to raise the seedlings if the majority are going to bloom with horribly ugly flowers haha.

    greetings,

    most probably there is not one has register the cross between the two yet, but it doesn't mean no one had tried it yet. catasetum sanguineum is quite dominant with their hooded influence in their crosses among catasetums but i am not sure how true will this influence be among intergenerics of the catasetinae.

    every crosses has a unique beauty of its own. i have yet to come across one ugly crosses of catasetinae. haha ...maybe i am catasetum junkie/
    there is no way of knowing without trying, and i don't think you will get so many ugly ducklings in a seed pod. usually there will be one or two interesting results of the crosses.

    It could get expensive if you send seeds to the lab.
