    Talking Catasetum pileatum 'Icy Green' in bloom

    I posted pictures of this catasetum last year. I am posting the latest blooming because I think this time the blooms look better.

    Cstm pileatum has probably the biggest flowers measuring 3 ins across. The lip is waxy and has very thick substance.This variety is named 'Icy Green' for very obvious reasons. I have another pink variety which should bloom soon.

    Beautiful.

    I have a similar plant which is also developing its spike now. One thing I've observed about this plant is that it has been a faithful bloomer and so easy to care for.
