Flasks

Carter and Holmes Orchids is first and foremost a Cattleya Orchid nursery so the majority of our offerings will be in that alliance.  Cattleyas, Laelias, Miniature and Compact Breeding and much more. 

 FLASKS ARE DO NOT RECEIVE DISCOUNTS- Prices listed below are Net Pricing

 

Our flasks are glass with rubber stoppers and can have different numbers of plants depending on the genus and stage.  Please read each description carefully for more information. Availability is very limited and usually only offered for a short time. Be prepared to work on your flask as soon as it arrives since shipping can loosen media and dislodge plants. 

There will not always be items in this category as material moves quickly through our lab.

FINALS- Our term for flasks in the final lab stages.  In most cases plants are ready to be moved into compots immediately. This represents the majority of our offerings.

SPREADS- Our Term for flasks at an intermediate stage.  This means they are small but well formed plants that need to be moved on 'Finals' and allowed to get larger before moving to the greenhouse.  Great for small labs or classroom/university projects.

MOTHER FLASKS- This is the first step after planting orchid seed.  Mother flasks hold literally hundreds if not a thousand baby orchids.  These must be kept in a lab setting and moved onto other media.  Not offered often since there are so many in a bottle.

 

A Reminder: Orchids in this category are NOT in pots, or anywhere near flowering size.  These are for commercial or hobby growers that have the time and patience to start babies from this earliest phase.

  1. Cymbidium dayanum x self *Flask*

    Cymbidium dayanum x self *Flask*

    SKU:10385/Flask

    10385 Cymbidium dayanum x self

    This easy to bloom species is native to regions throughout South East Asia.  Fast growing with vigorous grassy foliage.  Pendant stems showcase dozens of small cream-colored blooms with blood red stripes on each petal. As plants mature to specimen size you will easily see multiple bloom stems each season. Perfect for a greenhouse collection.  Not for southern climates as it does require a chill to flower properly.

    We are offering very large final stage flasks with at least 12-15 plants in each ready to be planted out into compots. Several bottles available.  These have huge root systems.

    Dendrobium attenuatum x sibling *Flask*

    SKU:10391/Flask

    10391 Dendrobium attenuatumx sibling

    We have been amazed at how fast this species has grown.  Less than 8 months since seed sowing, we have plants ready for the greenhouse! Unusual green and white blooms with namesake 'antenna' looking petals.  Very easy to grow and flower, these will need medium to bright light and intermediate to warm conditions.  Does not require a winter rest to flower.
