This is a discussion on catasetum pileatum x susan fuchs within the Orchids of Other Genera IN BLOOM forums, part of the Orchid Photography category; i do not know if there is a difference between ctsm susan fuchs x pileatum ...
i do not know if there is a difference between ctsm susan fuchs x pileatum VS ctsm pileatum x susan fuchs in terms of registrar name for the orchid but all i know is that this particular hybrid take the green form rather than the usual red form according to the grower.
one of the registered named for a ctsm susan fuchs (seed parent) x pileatum (pollen parent) is ctsm penang red.
bought about a year ago in bloom but 2 out of the three bulbs just melted in a week time due to bulb rot (unknown what causes it). manage to salvage a bulb and here it is giving another bloom and somehow this is one of my favorite hybrid so far.
Nice clean pristine bloom. Congrats Ian.
very sweet and cool looking flower. congrats.
Cool orchid blooms, Ian. This on has been named so you can update your tag: Ctsm. Penang (Ctsm. Susan Fuchs x Ctsm. pileatum)
Yes, the part about naming is true. Reciprocal crosses (A male x B female or A female x B male) still hold the same name. Problem lies with RHS website. It only recognizes one-way crosses, so you have to retype with the parents reversed..
All the color in Ctsm. Susan Fuchs comes from pileatum var. imperiale. and expansum. Use green clones of both and you have a green Penang. There are seedlings of green Orchidglades available now that are quite nice.
Very fine, very lovely. It is now a wish list item. AL
Nice green color on the petals.
