2013 Catasetum list

Sunset Valley Orchids Cycnoches and Catasetum Hybrids

Welcome to the new Catasetinae alliance hybrids and species list. I have been working for years to assemble the finest plants for this breeding program.  The plants have been selected on strict criteria of plant vigor, flower color, shape, and bloom count.  These qualities lead to AOS awards and as a result much of the breeding stock has now been awarded. This listing represents the finest hybrids in Catasetinae breeding today.

In 2012 Sunset Valley Orchids received 3 of the highest award given by the American Orchid Society the coveted First Class Certificate for its Catasetinae hybrids.

The continued efforts in developing the hybrid genus Fredclarkeara (Fdk.) is evident this season.  The Fdk. breeding produces flowers that are fragrant, of excellent shape, have amazing color and produce blooms that often last over 6 weeks. 

The quality of the 3” plants this year is excellent with lots Catasetums hybrids that are sure to grow and flower well in almost every condition. 

You will also see an increase in the number of Mormodias (Mo.) offered; the hybrids between Clowesias and Mormodes. They have the flower charm of Clowesia and the color of the Mormodes.  Expect the Mormodias to produce 2-4 pendulous spikes from the mature blubs and have excellent flower keeping qualities as well as have a citrus like fragrance.

This listing has one Cycnodes hybrids (Cycnoches x Mormodes).  This type of breeding produces excellent results.  The primary hybrids get the best qualities of both parents, the Mormodes is dominant for color and recessive for form and the Cycnoches is dominant for form and recessive for color.  Cycnodes hybrids have proven to be a reliable combination giving excellent results, if you have not grown this they are well worth a try.

If you are just getting interested in the Catasetinae alliance I am sure you will be surprised how easy these are to grow and then be “blown away” by how spectacular the flowers are.

If you have been growing the Catasetinae alliance you already understand…..

Clowesetum (Clo.) hybrids are made up of a Clowesia x Catasetum.  They have several important traits like: improved flower life, multiple spiking habit, good form, and fragrance. This grex is quite exciting as it is the first paring of Ctsm. denticulatum with a Clowesia.  Both parents are small growing Catasetinae staying under 4” tall.  I am hoping for the denticulatum color and markings to come thru in the progeny and the Rebecca Northen to add its growth and bloom habit.  I think there is great potential here for a brand new look in Clowesetum.  Give these a try.   Blooming Size

Morm. ignea ‘Neon Orange’ x Cyc. lehmannii ‘SVO’

When a Mormodes species and a Cycnoches species are crossed together a hybrid genus named Cycnodes (Cycd.) is created. Several amazing things happen with this paring: the flowers have incredible color, shape, and the offspring grow really well.  Last year two of the Cycnodes from the previous year’s offering received First Class Certificates (FCC’s).  Crossing Cycnoches to Mormodes is a match made in heaven. This Morm. ignea has an outrageous color and is very floriferous. Cyc. lehmannii is a large swan shaped flower of a deep green with white lip.  The Mormodes is dominant for color and the Cycnoches will be dominant for flower shape and size.  So what should you expect?
