    Default catasetum callosum

    second spike of my callosum, 13 of them again. the last flower bud is not in full bloom yet but got to post it in advance (my apologies) coz one of the flower had the pollen shot by the heavy rain. a third spike is forming as well.

    Just normal refrigerator cover with normal clean paper you can use A4 size cut into a small pieces sufficient to cover the pollens and keep inside small plastic bottle make sure no water go inside so far it's work for me especially vanda, phals, cochleanthes, huntleya and dens too.

    copy loud and clear. will do some pollen collection for the next spike and follow by "sun bath" the callosum plus "feedlot" the callosum during the next cycle to aim for a female spike. many thanks
