  1. Angraecum didieri *Miniature*

    Angraecum didieri *Miniature*

    SKU:9120/25

    A charming and easy to grow selection!  A perfect choice for beginner or amateur growers who want to try something new and different. These small growing plants will produce keikis and multiple growths freely which makes for a short, but bushy specimen in no time.  Plants carry dormant bloom stems for months at a time, which in turn become buds when the time is and conditions are right.  Usually flowers appear in late spring when days are getting longer and warmer, but growers have reported blooms in almost any season. Each stem holds a single, waxy white bloom with a short spur.

    Growing Suggestions:  This species actually does well in home growing conditions is enough humidity and airflow can be provided.  Medium light or brighter (like most Phalaenopsis) is usually enough to produce flowers.  Temperatures ranging from 65-85 degrees will be preferred.  Plants should be kept in well-draining media, and watered just as plants become dry.  Do not allow plants to stay wet for long periods or sit in water.  In greenhouses, or shadehouse conditions, plants will grow well on mounts or in small baskets. Fertilize lightly year round, usually once per month, remembering lower light levels means less food is used by the plant.

    We are offering Blooming Size plants in 2.5" pots, large enough to flower in the next 6-12 months.

    Angraecum magdalenae *Rare & Fragrant*

    SKU:10405/25

    (Photo shown Courtesy of Lourens Grobler)

    We were recently reminded of just how lovely this rare species of Madagascar is.  Pure white, waxy blooms grace plants with dark green foliage. Unlike a number of other Angracoids, these blooms will be fragrant with a spicy-sweet perfume during the day with the height of scent being reached in evening. And what a scent it is! Flowers can last for weeks in good culture.

    The foliage on Angraecum magdalenae is very dark green, with an almost leathery texture, and rather compact even when mature.  Usually plants reach approximately 12" in height, plus they will send out basal keikis as they age.

    Growing Suggestions:  We recommend these for advanced growers, or collectors experienced with plants needing specific growing requirments.  In nature, plants are generally found under extremely bright light, though slightly protected by the tress they grow on or under.  Young seedlings like these should be given bright, indirect light as much as is possible (avoiding sunburn) until they are bit bigger. As plants reach flowering size, more light can be tolerated and is needed to induce buds.  Intermediate to warm temperatures are preferred, with a sharp day to night difference.  Plants should be grown in long-lasting, well draining media or in baskets with some roots exposed. Repot only when needed and disturb them as little as possible. Angraecum magdalenae should be given a near dry spell over the winter when summer growths are complete.  Heavy mistings are enough, until spring returns when plants should receive frequent watering again.

    We are currently offering seedlings of this species, established in 2" net pots. They should not be moved into new containers until next spring.  We expect these plants to reach flowering size is approximately 2-3 years.

  3. Cattleya amethystoglossa 'El Camino' AM/AOS x 'Hutch' AM/AOS

    Cattleya amethystoglossa 'El Camino' AM/AOS x 'Hutch' AM/AOS

    SKU:10167/30

    This unusual and extremely showy species hails from select regions of Brazil. Plants are normally found in very brightly lit situations, where air flow is plentiful and humidity is high. Tall growing pseudobulbs can reach three feet tall on mature specimen plants.  Large clusters of waxy pink blooms heavily freckled with lavender purple spots. Plants are expected to be flowering size in 2 to 3 years.

    We are offering seedlings growing in 3" mesh baskets and chunky tree fern media.  We have found that this species does not take well to over watering, especially during the winter months and should never be put into overly large containers.  Our suggestion for these seedlings is to mist heavily 3 to 4 times per week during the winter, and daily during the warmer summer months. Roots should be allowed to dry in a short period of time.  Bifoliate Cattleyas should never be repotted unless in active growth with new roots showing. (Though we feel these plants will not need to be disturbed for at least two years.)

    We are offering seedlings growing in 3" mesh baskets and chunky tree fern media.  We have found that this species does not take well to over watering, especially during the winter months.  Our suggestion for these seedlings is to mist heavily 3 to 4 times per week during the winter, and daily during the warmer summer months.

    Cattleya gaskelliana ‘Newberry Delight’ x self

    This beautiful and richly fragrant species is native to regions of South America, including Venezuela and surrounding areas.  Highly recommended for both beginner and advanced collectors because of its sturdy growth habit and extravagant blooms.  This variety has pale lavender-pink petals and a contrasting dark purple lip. We have seen as many as four large blooms per stem, and well grown plants easily produce multiple growths per season.  Very Showy! Loves warm, bright conditions wherever possible.

    We are very pleased to present seedlings in an incredibly rare color form of this hard-to-find species.

We know these will disappear fast.

  9. Cymbidium dayanum album

    Cymbidium dayanum album 'Lady Elizabeth' CHM/AOS x self

    SKU:9233/35

    We have found that the seedlings of this award winning parent are fast growers and thrive in lower light levels than most Cymbidiums, though brighter conditions will increase bud count.

    Pendant stems of cream and faintly green flowers. As plants mature, multiple bloom stems are expected each year giving this excellent specimen potential.  Thin, grassy foliage that likes lots of airflow to prevent spotting.

  10. Dendrobium primulinum album *Rare*

    Dendrobium primulinum album *Rare*

    SKU:8844/25

    A beautiful form of this captivating species! The name 'primulinum' comes from its spring blooming season and while many seen for sale elsewhere are pink, offered here is the lovely and rare white version.  The growth habit is generally pendant, with the long slender canes hanging downward.  The blooms appear along the length of the new and old canes in late spring or early summer. Our plants are grown in clay pots with good drainage, but they can also be grown in hanging baskets or attached to mounts for a really nice show. This is a compact growing species, with growths less than a foot long when mature.

    Considered easy to grow, but these will need some specific growing conditions in order to do their best.  Very bright, though filtered light is best. Brighter light will make stronger canes and more blooms.  Plants will grow well in a range of temperatures from 55-85 degrees, but they do need a cool winter period for buds to set. If they are kept warm year round plants are not likely to flower.  We give ours water year round, though summertime is more frequently and winter is more like a heavy mist.  When in active growth from April through August water well and fertilize every third or fourth watering.  In the fall and winter, give just enough water to keep canes from shriveling. Plants will drop most or all foliage each year.  This is very normal.  Usually the last of the old leaves fall just as new spring growth is emerging.

    Plants in this size are large enough to flower within two years.
