Welcome to my 2021 GROW BLOG for the

 

Catasetum New Hybrid ( Ctsm. Melana Davison 'Foxtail' x Ctsm. Dark Odysseys 'BDL' )


Dark deep burgundy flowers are a favorite around here. Melana Davison (Penang x denticulatum) 'Foxtail' has nearly solid red flowers that are perfectly organized in a tight foxtail-like arrangement. Dark Odyssey (Karen Armstrong x Darkness) 'BDL' (short for 'Big Dark Lip') has an almost black lip. Here we are looking for dark red/burgundy colors framing a darker burgundy lip. Some plants will have a little yellow in the flowers as well.  The robust plants are growing nicely and will be easy to bloom. ( - Fred Clarke, Sunset Valley Orchids )
