    Catasetum is such a fascinating genus. How many species do you have?

    Well I think you have an interesting collection. Hope you find some more. I find it very interesting how flowers are either male or female and how the male flower shoots it's anther cap.

    My over active imagination to be sure, but the flowers of this species always brings to mind a group of monks -- with their cowls/hoods up and hands clasped in front of them.
