Mormodes Mimi

( Mormodes lawrenceana x Mormodes ignea )


Mormodes is a very interesting genus within Catasetinae.  They've gotten a reputation as hard to grow…and some are.  I have been growing them for years, and I now have selected the best growers and bloomers. Interestingly, hybrids between two species or “primary hybrids” like this one exhibit a phenomenon called ‘hybrid vigor,’ in which the offspring are more vigorous and easier to grow and flower compared to the parent species.  These will bloom with 2-4 inflorescences per bulb and fragrant, colorful flowers in orange-gold with darker burgundy spotting.  If you have good success growing Catasetums, these should do equally well.
