(Ctsm. John C. Burchett 'Ursa Major' FCC/AOS x Catasetum Dagny 'Fantastica')

 

 

Ctsm. John C. Burchett (João Stivalli x Susan Fuchs) is a spectacular hybrid! The huge, flat, nearly black lip of the cultivar 'Ursa Major' really impressed the judges, and this plant received a First Class Certificate (FCC/AOS) for Ryan Kowalczyk. 'Ursa Major' blooms 2-3 times a year, and female flowers are often produced first each season, thus this plant has been used frequently as a capsule parent. Ctsm. Dagny (pileatum x Brent's Black Hawk) has several noteworthy qualities: exceptionally rich deep red flower color with a just a spot of bright yellow in the center of the lip, long arching inflorescences carrying 12 -15 flowers each, and plants that bloom 2-3 times a season.   Both parents have big-lipped Catasetums (pileatum and expansum) in their background. Look for this cross to deliver big flowers, flat lips, colors from deep red to the darkest burgundy, and 12-15 blooms per stem 2-3 times a year!!! (SVO 7621)

1 August 2019

  • new bulb thickness at base:  less than 1 inch
  • new bulb height:  less than 2 inches
  • total height: less than 12 inches
  • leaf spread:  less than 12 inches

The above is just a base to compare progress of growth come September and nothing more.

 

Late July into August we are well into the grow cycle of Catasetinaes so I simply potted this orchid up into my standard customized pot to minimize disturbing the roots.  At least it gave me a chance to scan the roots for their condition.  I also potted this one slightly differently.  From a point just above the drainage holes on the sides, I used clay pellets, and above the clay pellets, I centered the orchid and loosely packed some fresh moss around the edges.  In the original pot, the roots were surrounding styrofoam peanuts so I left that in place.

 

I predict that this orchid will explode in new growth and hopefully show signs of spike soon.
