I'd be very interested in seeing that, does he have a website or something?

Sade, you must try Catasetum. I went over two decades without trying them. Got my first five last fall, just bloomed my first one this year, and I'm in love. There's nothing like something I can set onto an empty shelf somewhere during the holiday season, then pull it out in the spring. Beats the heck out of some of those divas that require constant year-round nurturing for a week of blooms.

Bernie started the Facebook group called "Catasetinae (Can), Cyrtopodiinae & related intergenerics" and he shows his growing set up quite often throughout the year. As far as I can tell, it's the largest Catasetum oriented FB group in North America. The group called "Catasetum Brazil" is the largest Catasetum group on FB (as far as I can tell) and only has a few hundred more members than the page started by Bernie.
