    Default My Catasetums collection

    I will start with my newest acquisition, Clowesetum Sandy Kasner (Cl. dodsoniana x Ctsm. Alexis Pardo). I won the plant during an orchid auction in March 2014. The largest p-bulbs on the pictures are the back bulbs. Every new growth is significantly smaller than older one.





    I had to divide the Clowesetum. Two of the divisions are in spike now.

    looks like a happy plant... so these can be divided down to just one bulb and still flower on next growth?

    That's right! Just one bulb is enough.
    Here is one picture taken a few minutes later. I had to repot two divisions and accidentally knocked down another one, with spike. Spike survived, but maternal p-bulb and new growth split. So, now I have five divisions

    that's cool. someone was asking about that on here and i cautioned them not to in general.... mentioned the normal rule of 3 bulbs for most other orchids. i guess the more mature bulbs of these get really big though, so it kinda makes sense. good to know, since these can become huge! i have one relative of this in spike.

    "3 bulbs rule" is good for propagation of Catts, Bulbos etc. If I remember correct, Fred Clarke recommends two bulb divisions for Catasetums ideally. However, even one mature p-bulb is enough. I hope that my plant in spike which lost mother p-bulb is strong enough to bloom. It is only one bulb division now and the growth is still maturing.

    I purchased my plant in October 2009. It was a two-bulb division. My plant developed one new growth every year and two new growths in 2013
    Fdk. After Dark (Mo. Painted Desert ‘SVO’ HCC/AOS x Ctsm. Donna Wise ‘Kathleen’ AM/AOS),
    First bloom. November 2012



    December 2013.

    Divisions of the same plant today.




    It did not bloom last year. I hope that at least one of those divisions will flower this year.
