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. Paph. appletonianum *Species*

    Paph. appletonianum *Species*

    SKU:PaphApple/40

    Paphiopedilum appletonianum

    ('Fox Valley' AM/AOS x self)

    This wonderful species is everything elegant and dainty in a ladyslipper.  Low growing, compact foliage is pale green and silver with darker flecks.  Tall stems hold pink and green blooms that seem to float in mid-air.  The awarded parent is a high-color form and we expect these to be the same.  As plants mature they will produce clumps of multiple growths that can easily be grown as specimens. (We do not recommend dividing plants unless you have experience doing so). 

    Growing Suggestions:   Easy to maintain and bring into the flower. These are great for most windowsill collections, alongside other Phalaenopsis and Ladyslippers. Moderate light and intermediate temperatures.  Like other ladyslippers, roots should not be allowed to dry out.  We encourage checking for water approximately twice per week.  Plants are well established and do not need repotting until at least next spring.

     We have plants well grown in 4" pots and large enough to bloom in season, late this coming winter.
