Catasetum socco is a species of Catasetum found in South America.
Plant blooms in the spring.
Plant is found growing in South Eastern Brazil
Grow in intermediate conditions with partially bright light. Water regularly during growing season and when plants drop leaves during dormancy reduce watering. During dormancy only water about twice a month to keep pseudobulbs from shriveling. Resume watering normally when new growths occur in spring. Plants can die easily from over watering. Plants are usually grown in bark with perlite, cork, full sphagnum moss, and tree fern
