From what I have learned so far...... Orchids are like karate, there is always something to learn from someone who has more experience. And vice-versa.
Small correction. That should be Clowesia dodsoniana, not Clowesetum. It is a species, not an intergeneric hybrid. Your plant is a Clowesetum (Catasetum x Clowesia) but the parent is not. The cross does not appear to be registered as yet. It doesn't look like much of the Clowesia parent came through in the cross, but it is certainly a striking flower. Good growing.

I had sent an email to the nursery asking about this and here is his reply;
"The person was right about the name. It is a species and is Clowesia (Cl.) dodsoniana. I had the abbreviation as Clo., but Cl. is correct. As far as I know, the cross is not registered, but when it is, the genera name will be Clo. (Clowesetum).
So the correct name for the cross until it is registered is: Ctsm. Nicolasa Tavarez x Cl. dodsoniana.
Thanks for the correction."
