9780881924305: The World of Catasetums

Catasetum is a genus of Central and South American orchids, strikingly beautiful but somewhat neglected by hobbyists. The author, an experienced grower, has discovered that catasetums require very different cultural techniques from most orchids, but if the plants' particular needs are observed, they are not difficult to grow successfully. Among the traits that lend particular interest to the genus is the almost explosive release of pollen, a kind of conservatory parlor trick that delights the grower and surprises the unwary.

Book Description:

Catasetum is a genus of Central & South American orchids, strikingly beautiful but somewhat neglected by hobbyists. The author, an experienced grower, details techniques for successful cultivation.

From the Publisher:

World of Catasetums is not a monograph, per se, but as Holst describes it, a growers helpmate. Thus, it is comparatively light on taxonomy (although taxonomy is certainly not absent!) and instead focuses on issues that growers find pertinent, such as identification and culture with a little history thrown in. Holst provides very practical how-to advice about catasteum culture, with special attention to potting methods but also important information about dividing, fertilizing, watering, temperature, light, humidity and air movement, and pests and diseases. The key to determining what your catasetum needs is knowing the ecological zone from which the species originated, and Holst divides the Central and South America into five zones, explaining each zone carefully, and providing a map to give a general idea of catasetums origins. These zones recur throughout the book, linking the extensive plant listings to the cultural information. The bulk of this book is devoted to descriptions of the species, with the 68 that Holst knows best accorded full-blown descriptions. Additional chapters cover fragrance and breeding, accompanied by 89 stunning color photos of catasetums. Orchid lovers will find this book the door to a new passion.
