Orchids Wiki

Catasetum fimbriatum is a species of Catasetum found in South America. 

Description

Plant blooms from late spring to summer with a cluster of 3.75 cm wide flowers. Flowers are fragrant with a spicy scent.

Distribution

Plant is found growing on palm tree trunks in the dry lowland regions of Venezuela, Bolivai, Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina at elevations of 400 to 500 meters.

Culture

Grow in warm conditions with partially bright light. Water regularly during growing season and when plants drop leaves during dormancy reduce watering. During dormancy only water about twice a month to keep pseudobulbs from shriveling. Resume watering normally when new growths occur in spring. Plants can die easily from over watering. Plants are usually grown in bark with perlite, cork, full sphagnum moss, and tree fern

Catasetum and Cycnoches,  Part 2 - Catasetums with Unisexual Flowers by STEPHEN R. BATCHELOR

SCIENCE FICTION FANS who have read Ursula K. Le Guin's The Left Hand of Darkness will know just what I mean when I say that the majority of catasetums are like the alien Genthenians — so metimes male, other times female, depending on external elements at the time of kemmer (flower initiation)! These 90 or more Central and South American species produce unisexual flowers: male (staminate) flowers and female (pistillate) flowers. In each case, organs of one sex are functional while those of the other are not.
