I've grown this plant for many years now and she is a reliable annual bloomer. She's always the last one of my three Catasetums/Clowesia which is flowering.

Lovely!! I thought this species is a summer bloomer.
By the way, how common/easy is it to find Catasetums and Cycnoches in Germany?

Sorry for the delay...but I was almos4 4 weeks away enjoying the warmth and the sun of a more southern hemisphere. In the end it lasted two more day as planned due to delays of mi flight back home.
As to your questions.
This plant flowered under my condition always in late summer early fall ... may be this year slightly later then usual.
I grow only 3 Catasetums and one of them was a present amost 40 years ago .... but I think they should be available in Germany without problems as long as you don't search a very special and rare one.
