    Awesome!! The shape is so much like my Ctsm discolor that has just started opening. Is it a small plant? (For Ctsm that is.) Mine is darker...but the shape is exactly the same.

    ciliatum is not a small catasetum. the pseudobulb may grow up to 8 inches, i believe they may grow bigger but i divided the mother plant.
    discolor is similar to ciliatum but the inner labellum is lack of the stripes, and the spike of the discolor is not as erected as in ciliatum.

    Excellent - thanks for the info. And now...another one I need to be looking for. Love the colors.

    Thanks, Ian!
