2.5" pot, Blooming Size
Notes from the breeder:
We first offered this very successful hybrid in 2015, and we've been wanting to re-make it ever since. It's been eight years since the same parents bloomed, with Ctsm. Penang as a female and Ctsm. Chuck Taylor as a male! Sometimes, breeding plants with separate male and female flowers can require great patience, but it finally happened! Ctsm. Penang (Ctsm. Susan Fuchs x Ctsm. pileatum) is responsible for producing some very successful mini-Catasetum hybrids. We predicted that crossing it with Ctsm. Chuck Taylor (Portagee Star x denticulatum) would give excellent result, and the first batch of Ctsm. Dreamboats confirmed our expectations. Ctsm. Penang 'Sweetheart' can bloom with more than 20 large red flowers, and Chuck Taylor has beautiful flower color and blooms 2-3 times each season. With this hybrid, we expect large flower size with only a modest increase in plant size. The flowers will have wide, full lips and bloom 2-3 times a season, with flowers that will range from burgundy with yellow lips to deeply spotted, and every color in between. This is a very robust growing cross with superior vigor. We didn't want to take any chances, so we pollinated two female flowers on Penang 'Sweetheart'. Luckily, both attempts succeeded, and this same cross is available as SVO 10061.
