Catasetum Melana Davision (0)
Catasetum denticulatum × Catasetum Penang
(Catasetum denticulatum 'SVO' AM/AOS x Catasetum Penang 'Sweet Heart')
This grex has produced a variety of eye-catching flower colors, from solid deep burgundy to white blotched burgundy and white with fine red spotting. This is a new mini-Catasetum, with mature plants only 5” tall thanks to the influence of Catasetum denticulatum. Expect 15-20 flowers, 2-3 times per season. It's always interesting to see the effect of reciprocal breeding on the flower quality, and SVO 5995 is the reciprocal. This was SVO item 5001
