(Catasetum De Etta Harris 'Green Goddess' x Catasetum Melana Davison 'Snow White') 



I believed this is an inspired cross.  The flowers of De Etta Harris (Donna Wise x Crownfox Voodoo) 'Emerald Goddess' are a surprisingly deep emerald green, a color rarely seen. Melana Davison (denticulatum x Penang) 'Snow White' is truly amazing, with nearly pure white flowers that are perfectly arranged.  Why is this an inspired cross?  The range of flower colors will be remarkable: white to green, some pinks and rose colors, and even a few red shades.  Combine this with excellent flower shape and presentation, and you have a great cross.
