    Default Catasetum callosum

    second spike of catasetum callosum, but suffering similar fate like the first. the bugs just won't leave the flower pollen alone. had been getting a lot of such bugs problem of late. at most the flower last is one day and off the next day.....POLLEN EJECTED!!!
    thought of building up netting barricade but that is not practical in my setup......
