    Default Catasetum schunkei

    this is another mini catasetum, the pot shown in the pic is slightly less than 2 inches tall, so that would roughly depict how small the plant is. the entire spike is larger than the plant.

    Very pretty. Love seeing the bulb too as my catasetum collection appears to be growing and it is good to see what I might expect. I have purchased mini-hybrid varieties.

    I also agree, very nice!

    I have checked the vendors due to the first two shows in January and there will be 6 vendors from South America who will be attending and from looking at their websites they will have Catasetum and Cycnodes with them, my collection is going to grow!

    Nice plant! My catasetums aren't doing so well, my Penang and Pileatums have been getting smaller.
