Carter and Holmes Orchids works to provide a variety of different orchids for sale including rare species, classic mericlones, new and unique hybrids grown from seed and more. Our goal is to offer healthy, vigorous plants that will thrive in different growing conditions, though we consider our 'niche' to be orchids that are suitable for the beginner or hobby grower. Our selections for sale will vary throughout the year.

  1. Maxillaria variabilis (gold)

    Maxillaria Ben Berliner *New Size*

    SKU:10166/60

    Maxillaria Ben Berliner

    (Maxillaria variabilis (gold) x tenuifolia aurea)

    Our remake was made using the less common yellow forms of both species. We expect to see miniature yellow blooms, some with dark eyes and some with reddish freckles. The second parent is very fragrant so that may come through as well. These will prefer cool to intermediate temperatures and damp feet.  As they grow plants will become gorgeous specimens, suitable for baskets and hanging containers.  Flowers will appear mostly in the early to mid spring but plants can freely show blooms throughout the year.

    Growing Suggestions: We are currently growing these seedlings in containers with a light sphagnum moss blend.  This allows constant humidity around the roots without leading to rotten or soggy conditions.  Medium to bright light is best but plants must be kept in moderate temperatures to avoid leaf burn.  Good airflow is a must for healthy foliage.

     We are offering Blooming Size Plants growing in 6" plastic pots. These will not need to be repotted or disturbed for at least 12-18 months.

  3. Monnierara Millennium Magic *Black Orchid*

    Monnierara Millennium Magic *Black Orchid*

    SKU:BlackOrchid/40

     Monnierara Millennium Magic

    One of the few true 'Black Orchids'. We are offering a limited number of these awe-inspiring plants. Arching stems hold up to a dozen sparkling black flowers with a red flushed central column. Texture is waxy and has a glossy sheen.

    Plants are deciduous, dropping their foliage in late fall with new leaves to follow in the spring.  As with most plants of this kind, some lower/older leaf drop is normal at other times when season or growing conditions change. Water and fertilize regularly during the warm growing months, but reduce water and hold food during the fall and winter when plants are dormant. 

    We are offering plants well established in 4" pots.  All are blooming size but have not yet started flower spikes for this year.

  4. Peristeria elata *Dove Orchid*

    Peristeria elata *Dove Orchid*

    SKU:9601/35

    Peristeria elata

    This rare and beautiful species is native to Panama and surrounding countries.  Plants are usually seen growing at or very close to the ground in layers of rich humus and decaying plant material.  Known by many nicknames 'Dove Orchid', 'Holy Ghost Orchid', 'Holy Trinity orchid' due to the fact that if you look inside the blooms you will see the shape of a small white dove. Waxy, fragrant white blooms are held on tall, upright stems.  Inflorescences can be upward of 3 feet tall and hold over a dozen blooms.  Flowers appear in late summer and early fall although spikes can take months to reach maturity.

    Growing Suggestions: We do not suggest this offering for beginner growers, or for those growing inside on windowsills.  Peristeria elata should be grown in warm to hot conditions with a minimum year round temperature around 65-70 degrees. As young seedlings, light should be low to medium and as plants mature brighter light should be available.  Foliage can burn easily in extreme tempertures or bright light so constant moving air is recommended. Water and feed well during the active growing months. As growths mature reduce fertilizer/water but do not allow roots to become dry for long periods.  As with many terrestrials, roots are fuzzy and must have some moisture at all times. This plant can and will defoliate older growths.  Many times the only foliage on plants is the current years leaves.  

    We are offering seedlings approximately 2+ years from Blooming Size, already established in 3.5" pots.  These are very Limited and expected to sell out quickly.
