This website features the Catasetinae, the group of orchids consisting of Catasetums, Mormodes, Clowesia, Cycnoches and their hybrids.
These orchids are easy to grow and bloom once you understand their cultural needs. They explode with new growth during the summer growing season requiring copious amounts of water and fertilizer and go dormant during the winter when they are kept dry.
They are repotted in the spring as new growth emerges but not watered until that new growth is 4 or 5 inches tall. Simple!
It is early October and I have moved all my Catasetums from the shade house to the greenhouse. Not because it is starting to get cold but to control the amount of water they receive. All of the Catasetums that have new mature pseudobulbs will receive very little, if any, water for the rest of the year. Those plants that have pseudobulbs that are still growing and not yet mature will be watered weekly until the pseudobulbs mature.
