I'm very pleased to see my new Catasetum blooming. This is the plant I bought at the orchid show several weeks ago, and I was feeling great trepidation at the prospect of responsibility for a very unusual orchid. So far, so good....
Black and yellow flowers, with a perfume similar to cassis. It's posing outside next to my Russian sunflowers, though I keep it indoors when I'm not photographing the blooms. Here's a closeup:
And here's one of my outdoor Pleiospilos, another great bloom:
And here's a perky magenta flower from the robust Marlothistella:
To all my readers, happy blooming and have a great weekend!
