Brief Grow Blog and Pictures

 

This is a very floriferous hybrid influenced by the exceptional flower count of Clowesia russelliana. The flowers will be green to deep jade green, and lips will be green with a dark burgundy center. Expect many flowers on 2-foot-long pendulous inflorescences. Yes, you read it right – Two-foot- long inflorescences.  These plants will produce a memorable show of long-lasting flowers in late summer.  A spectacular hybrid.

Through April, I resisted the urge to water except by backfilling the reservoir.  I repeated as needed every few days keeping in mind a brief hot spell.

 

The new growth is developing nicely.

 

As long as temperatures stay near seasonable for this time of year I will refrain from top watering.  However, these bulbs are much thinner then other Catasetinaes so will also keep an eye on the condition of the supporting backbulb.
