Welcome to my 2021 GROW BLOG for the

 

Catasetum NoID ( Ctsm. Portagee Star 'Brian Lawson's Sunrise' HCC/AOS x Ctsm. Melana Davison 'Fox Tail' )


The flower quality of Portagee Star is surprisingly nice: the shape is full, the lip is flat and the color is an attractive yellow with a bit of red.  Melana Davison (Ctsm. Susan Fuchs x Ctsm. denticulatum) has been a landmark hybrid in the breeding of reduced plant size while maintaining excellent flower size, shape, color, and count.  It also has been recognized with 7 AM/AOS awards!  The mostly red flowers of 'Fox Tail' have an excellent presentation; the flower count is very high.  Here we have crossed the standard size Portagee Star onto a first generation mini-Catasetum Melana Davison.  These plants will still be small growers and stay under 8” tall.  I expect excellent flower form, increased bloom size and easy culture.  These should produce many-flowered inflorescences 2-3 times a season.  Flower color will vary from light yellow to dark red and everything in-between.
