    Default Catasetum Nicolasa Tavarez X Clowesia dodsoniana

    Having issues this year with this species, what normally would have bloomed 2-3 times by now I am lucky to get spikes and the number of blooms is way low, still trying to figure out why this is happening. There is another spike growing.

    Well nevertheless a beautiful flower! Maybe it's cyclical and will be better next year.

    I would agree, thanks. I have had this one since 2014 and the very next blooming season it gave me two spikes and since then I have gotten 3-4 spikes each blooming season. I am having the same problem with all my others not just this one. Going to ask around to see if any one has any idea what's up.

    A remarkable cross with unusual flowers. Is this cross dioecious?

    You can answer this yourself by looking at the flowers. These are male flowers. So, yes. Most catasetae are, I think, maybe all are ; its a characteristic of the genus.
