    If you are wondering about the flowers then I am lost as to how to answer, all I can say is I really like this one being as it is different and causes you to wonder, being the expert I think you are...:

    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.

    Ian, I am a firm believer that when you stop learning its not worth living any more. Seeing as I had my irrigation system set up a month ago I find I have more time and am looking for something else to get into. After seeing Harvey's Bonzi recently I have been studying up on the subject as I want to get a few, at my age I have got to keep the mind going why not do it with things you really enjoy!

    Kirk, I can only go by the tag that was in the orchid when I purchased from a well know grower here in Florida. I will check with them and see what is going on.

    Kirk,
    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."

    Thanks Kirk!!
