Catasetum - new growth has some new growths
Default Catasetum - new growth has some new growths

Guys, I have a question. I have this catasetum type, Fdk. Dark There After ĎSVO Crazy Goodí AM/AOS x Ctsm. Jose Avalonís ĎSVOí. It was a gift I received when I purchased another catasetum type from a man in my local orchid society, so I donít know much about it. Itís growth is the smallest of my 3 catasetum types, but it looks like the new growth has sprouted 2 newer growths? It almost looks like a 3rd tiny growth wants to emerge as well. What is this?
Is this from culture or genetics? Itís not like I can do anything about it, but itís the tiniest of the 3 that I am growing already, and I was completely taken by surprise when I spotted these!
First picture is a comparison pic of overall growth- orchid in question is the bottom right next to my Black Pearl on the left (swoon!) and the Cycnodes Wine Delight in the back (Which got so big so fast to the point that the bottom leaves are tearing-itís just bursting at the seams!). The Ďchid in question is just so tiny! Why would it want to create multiple growths? Or are those flower spikes already?? I doubt it but...Iím totally new to this type of orchid and I HAVE TO SAY itís a pleasure to watch them develop so quickly!! Versus my cattleyas and other slow growing types I am having so much fun watching my hibernating gals come to life! But what the heck, Dark There After, are you okay?

Some of the catasetums DO flower early when the new growth is still coming in. So it's possible those are flower spikes.

I agree with Hypostatic that they are likely to be spikes - yay.

Some of mine spike so early that I haven't even started watering them as the new growth is so small.

I see new growths sometimes that will become growths. Some simply stall and others die. Just watch and see lol
