I've been growing this one from a single bulb division since early this year. When it bought it from Diamond Orchids, it had one new growth, but about a week or two after I got it, it popped another one. Initially, I wasn't sure if I nailed the culture on it as it seemed a bit more finicky that my other catasetum types and it seems, based purely on my observations, that it liked to dry out a bit more and get a tiny bit less fertilizer than the other types.

That said, I must've done something right as it's currently flower 32 flowers on three spikes from one bulb and the other the bulb has two more spikes now pushing.

Tangent: When I bought this, I thought it would be particularly cool to have this pure white flower next to my 'SVO Black Pearl'... And with a bit of luck, I may get that opportunity as one of my black pearls should be popping buds this week. Admittedly, at the time, I didn't know that Fdk. After Dark was so huge, so the scale may make getting a photo of the two in bloom side-by-side a bit more difficult, ha.

Beautiful and great growing! I love that one spike is not quite as pendant as usual. It seems to hang above the cascading spike. Too cool! I'm sure you're loving the scent as well.

Thanks! Yeah, I can't wait to see what this little guy will look like next year if the trend on growths continues (2-3 per p-bulb) - it should be a good specimen before long.

Regarding the smell, I really like it - to me it's like honeysuckle with cinnamon, but everyone is different. My wife smells what I smell from it, but also she picks on some sort of musky smell that I don't... which she isn't fond of, ha - oh well, can't win em all.
