( Ctsm. Noname Hybrid ( Catasetum Susan Fuchs 'Burgundy Chips' FCC/AOS x Catasetum Dentigrianum 'Best' )

 

Catasetum Susan Fuchs (Orchidglade x expansum) is a well-known hybrid, and the cultivar 'Burgundy Chips,' with its large yellow flowers and bold burgundy spotting, is a proven breeder, with many successful hybrids to its credit.  Catasetum Dentigrianum (denticulatum x tigrinum) is a breakthrough in mini-Catasetum breeding. It's a primary hybrid, but what it lacks in genealogical complexity it makes up for in charm, with beautifully-formed flowers in white, uniformly spotted with burgundy, and a soft yellow lip with a dentate margin.  This cross may be one of the best of the mini-Catasetums yet produced! We are expecting excellent flower shape and beautifully spotted flowers with full lips, all on a small-growing, easy-to-bloom plant. As a bonus, these should bloom two or three times each year.

This is as of yet an unnamed hybrid from Sunset Valley Orchids (SVO 7646).  Learning the growth pattern of both parents will help in blooming this particular orchid.
