Sunset Valley Orchids 2024 Catasetinae Plant Offering

For 2023-24, I am pleased to offer this comprehensive selection of Catasetinae hybrids and species. Through the ongoing process of collecting, selecting, and developing our parental lines, the quality of the breeding stock is now without comparison. These new hybrids will set the standard for flower quality, plant vigor, and your enjoyment.
Please note: This year the Catasetinae catalog will come out in two parts, the second half is going to the huge!  It will be released about a month after the first.  Keep an eye out for the second release we believe you will be impressed.

This season we have focused on five areas:

Species:  We have been collecting and selecting the finest species for many years. Breeding sexually dimorphic orchids is challenging. This year’s list is impressive. 

Cycnoches: The elegant swan-shaped blooms of Cycnoches are simply breathtaking. Our Cycnoches breeding program has reached new heights, and this year’s offering has brought together the results of evaluating 100’s of potential parents and selecting for plant vigor and excellent flower color and quality. These new crosses will grow fast and reach blooming size in 3” pots. This is the year to ‘stock up on these’ - it’s a truly spectacular offering.

Mini-Catasetum: The success of “mini-Catasetum” crosses and positive feedback by collectors have inspired us to step up the development in this category. Besides being compact growers, these plants consistently flower 2-4 times a year! This new list is by far the deepest and broadest we have offered, and there are many promising new crosses to select from.

Mormodes: Commonly called the goblin orchid, this genus has been getting lots of attention from my toothpick! These are the some of the last Catasetinae to bloom each season, and they look fantastic with their bare bulbs and upright spikes of strange-shaped flowers in fantastic colors! These new crosses are super exciting, and I can hardly manage my anticipation while waiting to see these bloom.

Clowesia: The benefits Clowesia brings to its offspring are surprising: flower longevity, reduced plant size, fragrance, multiple cascading inflorescences, full flower shape and more. We are capitalizing on these benefits in a wide variety of crosses. How many of you have wanted a Cl. Rebecca Northen or Cl. Grace Dunn?  These are now available, and we have both a sibling cross and a remake of the original cross. Get them now! 

Of special note: Are the Catamodes at the end of the list.  We are again breaking new ground with Catasetinae breeding. Take a look.
