The Project Catasetum:
A remake of Ctsm. Chuck Taylor (Ctsm. denticulatum x Ctsm. Portagee Star) These will be miniature plants, with lots of small flowers in summer. Should be excellent shape with a yellow lip, and spotted pink petals. Easy to grow and flower.
Every year, HDO sponsors what we call the "Project Plant" This is a wonderful project that unites growers across the country. HDO procures a large number of seedlings (i.e. seed grown, NOT Seedling size) of a particular grex, and sells them to whomever is interested. The plants are then grown however the new owner sees fit, in their environment. We share our progress, pitfalls, and flowers via the HDO Facebook group, and everyone gets to see the amazing variation between the plants as they bloom. This is the third year we have done this, its always fun, and I always get requests to do it again. The mission of this project is to learn about others growing, improve our own growing, but most of all to unite and engage with other growers across the country and share our love for beautiful flowers.
