this female flower is catasetum Chong Keng Yong. its a first female flower for me and the best part is that i had a male flower blooming at the same time so i guess i had the chance to try with hybridization as well. if pollination is successful i guess i got to find a orchid nursery to help me with the flasking. if everything goes on well, i even thought of registering the hybrid.
its only the first step so far and still so many steps far ahead. i guess it would be 3-4 years at least before i can see the product of my hybridization.
the second pic is after the male pollen (paired yellow structure) is in place. keeping my finger cross :)
