Catasetum Erick Arce ( Ctsm. Karen Armstrong 'Dark Darling' x Ctsm. tigrinum 'SVO' )


The flowers of Karen Armstrong (Susan Fuchs x denticulatum) 'Dark Darling' are boldly colored and have yellow lips covered with prominent red spotting on all segments. Ctsm. tigrinum 'SVO' produces impressive cascades of 20-25 white flowers spotted in light pink two or three times a year. This mini-Catasetum cross will produce flowers in a wide range of colors from burgundy to cream. Many will be spotted and all will be easy to bloom, producing flowers several times a season.  Here are the first two plants to bloom  Picture 1    Picture 2( - Fred Clarke, Sunset Valley Orchids )

    Just to clarify, it is not a no ID, you know what the plant is, it is an unregistered cross. Rather, it was unregistered, Fred has since registered it as Erick Arce https://apps.rhs.org.uk/horticulturaldatabase/orchidregister/orchiddetails.asp?ID=1039764
    However, even if it was not ever registered (Fred makes a lot of crosses but doesn't register all of them), it would still be Ctsm Karen Armstrong 'Dark Darling' x Ctsm tigrinum 'SVO'. No ID means it was purchased with no label so the name is not known. Generally speaking, a no ID is always a no ID (there are some exceptions, as the blooms are so easily identifiable they can be given a name).

    I am not a member of the AOS on purpose, I do not get updates from the RHS registry concerning "new registers", however, it is folks like you that are kind to share information that can be updated. I guess I could tell you that today as the buds of this orchid are about to open, I did look to see if the hybrid combo had been "named". FYO, it remains un-named on SVO.....

    Thank you for your input, every bit helps to make a complete project.
