Before Cattleya Mossiae (popularly called Flor de Mayo) was named
the national flower of Venezuela, Catasetum Pileatum popularly known as
Flor de Nacar had that distintion. Above is a Catasetum Pileatum that
just opened, it does not flower very well in Caracas, it likes hotter
temperatures, but by placing it near the top of the greenhouse I can
get it to bloom three or four flowers.
