    Default Catasetum maculatum and Mormodes Midnight

    two of the current bloomers, the maculatum is new to my addition since march this year, first growth.
    the closeup of the maculatum shows the rectangulare serrated orifice which differentiate it from its relatives the integerrimum which is rounded in nature. the third close related to this is the viridifalvum, easily recognized by the globous large dome cap that is yellowish green.

    wow. so exotic and weird, but both are also very pretty. i love the color on the mormodes. the flower stem grew upright? first of this tribe of orchids i have seen do that, most stick out perpendicular to the plant.

    the spike is semi erect to slight arching not a true erected spike

    Congrats Ian on growing this. Mormodes is quite difficult to grow here. This makes me want to try this too .

    mormodes just needs good aeration on the roots, and upon maturity of the bulbs, reduce fertilizing to very low level to induce spike then i increase flowering fert again when the spike emerges.
