Purchased from Sunset Valley Orchids' 2017 Catasetum offerings. First bloom for this plant. I'm in awe! Look how the color goes from burgundy to black, depending on the light. Forty flowers!! AOS judging is this coming weekend, I hope the judges will like it as much as I do.

Very nice!!
Even with Melana Davidson on one side, the plant needed to get quite big to bloom. I think this was made in hope to bring down the plant size, right? My 'mini' FDK hybrids are all getting bigger than I'd like.

Thank you! I noticed a fruity fragrance in the tent this morning, but not strong.
Well grown. I also love the fragrance of these.. sometimes too sweet.
The other is Mormodia Jumbo World, I'll post its photo when both spikes open. Judging will be in person, however they request that exhibitors send them photos in advance so that they can minimize the time needed in person, and also to give you a heads up if they think the plant would even be worth judging.
What is the other catasetum(?)? And is judging in person or virtual?
You are right, the description from SVO mentioned this being bred to be a mini-Fdk. Nope! It's freaking huge.

May i use your photo in a talk on black orchids? Of course I will credit you. I have another one to use for comparison as well.

I was thinking 'Osiris' as my only other awarded plant is 'Apollo' so I wanted to stay consistent with the mythology theme
