    Those are awesome catasetums. Catasetums are some of my favourites too. This seems to be the blooming season for Cstm. My Cstm pileatum ' Icy Green' will be blooming in a few days. This time with 10 flowers ( usually 6-7 ). Unfortunately the pink pileatum had the growing spike eaten by snails but a new spike is coming out about an inch. Hope the snails will not eat this one. 2 other cstm will be blooming soon. One is Cstm Jumbo Pearl but it is dark brown/purple like one of yours. Still can't figure out why it is named Pearl - unless it is meant to be a black pearl! LOL.

    neoh, Thanks for the names, I will add them to my search list. The only ctsm orchid I have grown is Grace Dunn and I am very fond of her and her lemony sent. Ti

    good to find out another catasetum fan
    i love the last one, ctsm susan fuchs x penang red, like the dark colored labellum.
    seems like catasetums blooming season is here, i got another two new catasetums coming into bloom. one is a pileatum white "snow cup" and some other new and old hybrids is about to bloom as well.

    Yes the last one is pretty awesome. I like the Susan Fuchs x Orchidglade with the white contrasting edges. You do a great job with these Ian, thanks for sharing.
