Hi Ian thanks for your effort to discuss with your catasetum forum, this is very invaluable information that I got it, I really appreciate it, I have to accept that it's Clowesetum or so call hybrid between Clowesia and Catasetum, well the info I got from the vendor he personally went to Columbia and got it the plant from the local people.I would be very happy if it's species, reality is the other way round. Thanks again Ian for helping me.
Very beautiful bet the spicy fragrance smells nice
Salam Encik Zainal,
well, i guess i am in luck. when i was looking at my sanguineum crosses, the hole/depression in the labellum reminds me of this post of yours. and the petals are very familiar, reminding me of ctsm cernuum. thus i type for google search, ctsm sanguineum x cernuum.
eureka!!! ctsm jumbo izzy!!! the small tooth like structure are present in ctsm sanguineum, even more prominent. and the lateral sepals that are curling in are characteristic of cernuum.
however yours is totally green, making me wondering it is an album hybrid. there are ctsm cernuum album out there but it would be a very special case that none of the sanguineum colors appears. the nose like projection of the labellum, the way the trigger pollina enter the depression of the labellum in the center are influence of sanguineum.
here is the image of ctsm jumbo izzy
in a nutshell i am very sure it is ctsm jumbo izzy album OR at least part of the blood line in another cross.
Hi Ian thank you very much I really appreciate it your knowledge on this genera I would say "marvelous" and your persistent on it finally come out the beautiful result. Ya I agree with you a lots of similarity in term of floral shape and size except mine is alba form could be natural hybrid in the wild thanks again for the invaluable info.
WOW! What a beautiful, deep red orchid! Betty
Such a nice, pure green color on this orchid bloom. Love it!
