Catasetum Susan Fuchs × Catasetum pileatumt


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.
