Default Catasetum Ten Dragons

(Catasetum tenebrosum ‘Ed Wise' #3 X Catasetum Dragon Teeth ‘SVO’ AM/AOS)

I only have four flowers on this and two buds have blasted. The grower/seller gave me a picture of what might come out as flowers (last picture) my plant have produced a dominant strain of 'alba' on the left picture bloom and I dont know how to distinguish if my flowers are male or female or both.
The culture I follow on this is from the SVO site.

If that is pollen...male. Otherwise, no idea. Cool green. My only green is an aeranthes. I am trying to buy more varity but I still picked up two more white orchids at the Pgh show. Sigh. Does this one have a fragrance?

Definitely male. I've never seen an alba variety of this cross. It's pretty cool!

very nice Ten Dragons... this is the second alba form of this cross I see.. just gorgeous!

your plants are male: check the flat lip pointing downwards and the presence of antennae! Female flowers would tend to have a rounded/hooded lip pinting upwards and no antennae...

just a correction, the alba feature is not dominant, but a rezessive (recesive!?) character shown in very few plants.

Thanks for the info, Ramón!!!!

Leafmite and you have so far confirmed it is male.
And its good to know that it has a recessive trait....

Gorgeous!
That is one of the genuses I never tried to grow. The rest period scares me a bit.
