catasetum cristatum

catasetum cristatum,belongs to the barbatum complexes of the catasetums.
the catasetum cristatum has also bearded structure like its brother, eg. the barbatum, gladiatorium, lanciferum and etc..
the distinction for the cristatum is that it has a rounded apex on the bearded structure.

just got this plant about three weeks ago. this one comes in quite a poor root condition, and i had removed it from the media immediately after the full bloom. as i removed the sphagnum moss and trimmed it till bare bulb. though the bulb are shrivel but still green and solid. i guess it will be sitting in the empty pots for several weeks before it send out a new keiki again.
