I received a new Catasetum in the mail yesterday from Fred Clarke at SVO Orchids. It is a Catasetum Penang (Catasetum Pileatum v. Imperale ‘SVO Blood Red’ x Catasetum Susan Fuchs ‘Burgundy Chips’ FCC/AOS). It is in good shape — except that the thin leaves are bent a little from the shipping — and in spike. The flowers should be burgundy red.
I won’t plant this in S/H until it goes out of bloom.
