    Default catasetum atratum x purum, male and hermaphrodites

    two spike on this plant, one with entire male flowers while the other with mixed hermaphrodites. this mixted spike initially was forming a female spike; can tell by the more erected spike, with a fatter peduncle. unfortunately the sunny season is coming to an end, during the later half of the spike formation, the weather was cloudy and rainy.
