Catasetum NoID ( Ctsm. Melana Davison 'Hoorah' x Ctsm. Isobel's Sunshine 'SVO'  )

 

Melana Davison (denticulatum x Penang) 'Hoorah' is particularly beautiful due to the yellow base color of the lip and red markings throughout. This Isobel's Sunshine (Portagee Star x kleberianum) has a bright yellow lip with dark bars of burgundy on the petals and sepals. Here we are aiming for large flat yellow lips with red to burgundy petals and sepals, all on a mini-Catasetum plant.  We liked the combination so much we made the cross twice! See SVO 8096.
