Catasetum Penang

 

 

Catasetum Penang is an orchid hybrid originated by Ooi Leng Sun in 1989. It is a cross of Catasetum Susan Fuchs x Catasetum pileatum.

 

Species composition:

Catasetum pileatum (63%) + Catasetum expansum (38%)

 

Searching my usual sources, as of yet have not been able to find any history of awards for this particular hybrid. This is interesting for a hybrid that has been used as a parent in 19 hybrids and counting.

 

 

 

Parentage:

 

Catasetum Susan Fuchs × Catasetum pileatum

Culture:

 

Follow the standard care as outlined in the AOS Culture Sheet but be aware of the ancestral species and their particular needs.  As always, observing and interpreting your orchid's signs be the ultimate guide to tending to their care needs.
