Holst suggests that interest in Catasetum has lagged behind that of other orchids because most are not readily available in the United States. With interest being shown in the genus, a treasure-trove of Brazilian species now commercially available, and a grower's guide, new horizons are opening for Catasetum enthusiasts.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 088192430X, Hardcover)

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.
