Some of Fred Clarkes magic! I bought this plant from SVO about a year ago, not really knowing what to expect. Flower colour was said to be variable, from yellowish to dark rose. I am very happy that my plant turned out to have a deep red colour. I love the beard!! Kind of suitable now when we are approaching Christmas... :) The flowers have a fragrance reminiscent of bubblegum and root beer.

The cross is Cl. Rebecca Northen ‘Grapefruit Pink’ x Ctsm. pileatum v. imperale ‘SVO Blood Red’. I grow this one in sphagnum, really dry when in rest, plenty of water, warmth, fertilizer and light when in growth.

I have this cross also, but mine did not bloom this year. Hopefully it will be as nice as yours next season.

Thanks for all your comments. This is my first and only Catasetiine so far. But I am definitely planning in buying some more in spring. A very interesting group of plants.
