Catasetum fimbriatum orchid

Catasetum fimbriatum, in portuguese called sambaré, is a gorgeous orchid that flowers at the beginning of the rainy season, right now ...

The juice of it's bulbs can be used as a strong glue and the leafs are forraged by herbivores, if they can reach it.

They grow almost exclusively on palm trees like acuri, bocaiuva and caranda.

What a beauty !
