recent purchased hybrids

had not been posting for quite sometimes, because most are bloom that i had posted before. it had been so long that i forgotten to post my catasetum Fuchs Delight the last round. well, another division is in bloom and hopefully did not forget to post them this time.

this is Catasetum Chong Keng Yong (Catasetum Bound for Glory x Catasetum Susan Fuchs 'Burgubdy Chips'). i have one of this, but somehow this plant stick to me like Velcro the moment i saw it. this cultivar has a more open labellum, spread open sideways while my first Chong Keng Yong has a more cup shaped labellum and much more porminent callus. 

the second hybrid here is catasetum Redland Black Cherry (catasetum Penang x Catasetum Jumbo Pearl 'Oo Oo'). i had one of this before but i guess it didn't like me that much and booked a ticket to Tmbuktu after a couple of years.
this cultivar is much darker than the previous one and color is much more vibrant
these two plants came with flowers and thus can't claim any credit for the blooms. but it has been a much fruitful day for me today and i had the chance to taste buah keledang for the first time. foudn a stall selling the fruit while on the way back from the nursery.
