Fully agree with Steve, this is a good time to stop watering...

Bud, check Fred's website... The clon 'Black Pearl' is just $100.. And you can get an unbloomed plant for $30 . The times of this cross having scandalous prices is gone since quite a while ago... Now, go for one! :-)

Thank guys, it's all her will I just watch! Yesterday I saw a strange thing. This is my first catasetinae, so I haven't experience. I've read on Fred Clarke's site that these plants produce flowers and THEN new growth and root (after roots are 3-4 inches, start watering).
Today I saw this, so... what?!??

yeap, tell me about it, sometimes the base of the spike will develop into a small underdevelp bulb as well and the plant is only crosses among catasetums.

I have no experience of these but dens. Can do the same thing. It's almost like a half keiki half spike on those. On the Dens if I leave them after flowering other growths appear next to them turning them in to keiki. No idea if that can happen here.

any more updates ?
I recently won one of these at an auction. Its blooming and has a unique scent in the morning.
Anyway I e-mailed Fred Clarke and he said to me to only water when the media is dry and then stop watering by Jan 1st completely.
