second spike, my catasetums here usually seldom flowers during the dormant phase, in fact i think this is the first time for me.
the last pic here is the comparison of the 'claro' and the catasetum Chong Keng Yong i posted two days ago
Maybe it figured "Geez, everyone else is blooming..." -- one of those kids who just has to follow the crowd. heh
Certainly a welcome surprise and a wonderful thing to view from here...................................AL
Lovely and out of season too.
have u ever seen a Catasetum flower simultaneously as the new growth emerges?? kinda like a cyrtopodium lolol....they do some strange things
makes sense as the stored energy within the older plump pseudobulbs would help feed that flower spike hmm
Thanks for the comparison shots - I rather like your quirky, out-of-season catasetum!
