Fredclarkeara Dark There After 'SVO Winters Night' FCC/AOS 

 

Fredclarkeara Dark There After is an orchid hybrid originated by Fred Clarke in 2009. It is a cross of Fredclarearak After Dark  x  Catasetum Donna Wise.

 

Fredclarkeara After Dark ‘SVO’ (Mormodes Painted Desert  x  Catasetum Donna Wise) is a spectacular spotted flower of superb shape, presentation and size.  Catasetum Donna Wise ‘Susan’ (Catasetum Orchidglade  x  Catasetum tenebrosum) is the most recent award to this highly awarded grex and it is also the best. The expectation here is that the addition of Catasetum Donna Wise back on to Fredclarkeara After Dark will improve the lip size and shape while reinforcing the dark color genes. It is hard to improve on the world famous Fredclarkeara After Dark, this may do it. Can you imagine 3” black flowers that last for 6-7 weeks! Tremendous award potential. (SVO 2016)

Culture

 

Follow the guidelines set forth in Catasetinae Plant Culture  found here.  As with any orchid, pay attention to what the orchid is telling you by displaying dry brittle leaf teaps, the bulb shriveling, sunburn on the leaves etc., etc., and act accordingly.
