Beautiful! I have my first one in bud right now. I can't wait to see them open. I've never grown these before. Fred Clarke gave me one to try when I visited his greenhouse in June. I hope mine is as nice as yours! How many flowers? It looks like mine has nine. Can you post a pic of the whole plant if you have time? I would like to see what yours looks like. Thanks for sharing!

It only has 3, sadly, but hoping the second new growth will also produce.

Thanks Paul. So I just looked mine up and it is a Cycnoches not a Catasetum so I guess they aren't the same. My spike is growing from the top of the pbulb. That tells you how much I don't know about these! Great flowers though!
