    Default catasetum callosum -2013

    first bloom of the callosum for year 2013 but unfortunately about half of the flowers got the pollen ejected by pollinators before they got the chance for a full bloom.

    I really like the contrast between the light color and the green lip, very striking

    usually for first time bloomer, i will cover the plant with a large netting till the bloom is at its peak. or alternatively, you can bring them indoor, beside the glass window. thx
