    Default Caularthron bicornutum 'Galeota'

    in the 1950's circa a single specimen of C.bicornutum was found on the dry coast of Trinidad in the scrub forests of a headland called Galeota that was destroyed for oil exploration...this is the only specimen to exhibit pink it the triton of the lip and a suffusion throughout the sepals and petals....breeding this plant with commonly occurring typical coloration proved unsuccessful until generations after of sib crosssings and back crossings....usually the progeny were typical white....i couldnt wait to post a pic so i used my cell phone....this is a division of the original plant over 60 years old

    I'd never heard of this one either, but it sure is beautiful. I guess sometime people have to make a choice between conservation and progress, but it's a shame that natural habitats are destroyed (of course that's from our point of view living in a 'developed' country).

    The only thing wrong with progress is that we never stopped....money runs the world so many decisions are influenced by same...in my country government think about their own pockets because we have enough oil and gas to be much more developed....corruption is at its highest....ill do my part in orchid conservation makes no sense trying to persuade the educated asses in power....

    It's a shame that something isn't done with orchids and other rare plants like what is happening with archaeology. In the United States areas that are going to be developed can be delayed for archaeological digs. It would be nice if collecting would be allowed - even encouraged in areas that are going to be devastated. I know it wouldn't save the environment but at least we could save the plants that would otherwise be lost.
