Ctsm. Chuck Taylor (Ctsm. Portagee Star 'Brian Lawsons Sunrise' HCC/AOS x Ctsm. denticulatum 'Wide Petals')

I have wanted to do an exact re-make of this mini-Catasetum for quite a while, but it can be a challenge to get female flowers! In 2018, we finally had a number of plants produce female flowers, and an exact remake of the original was accomplished. It's always fun to go back and see how you thought the cross would turn out. Here is the description written in 2010: “Ctsm. Portagee Star (Ctsm. expansum x Ctsm. Black Knight) interestingly this grex has the 3 same parental species as the famous Ctsm. Donna Wise, pileatum, expansum, and tenebrosum. 'Brian Lawson's Sunrise' carries up to 15 flowers in shades of yellow and burgundy, very attractive. The denticulatum has a nice yellow lip, 25 flowers and is a small growing plant. Here we are breeding in a new direction for reduced plant size while keeping good flower color and high flower count.” Chuck Taylors have been landmark mini-Catasetums: small-growing and easy to flower with attractive blooms. Check out this PICTURE from the first blooming. This is also a rare opportunity to evaluate the results from a reciprocal Catasetum cross, which is available as SVO 8101.
