    Bpl. Fiftieth Anniversary 'Newberry'

    SKU:9378M/25

    Bpl. Fiftieth Anniversary 'Newberry'

     (Bl. Richard Mueller x Epidendrum magnoliae)

     Return of a customer favorite!  This mericlone is a compact grower with semi-terete foliage and sprays of golden-yellow blooms.  We have found flowering season is primarily in summer and fall but mature plants or those grown in warm climates will be free-flowering.  Which means flowering in any season and more than once per year!

     Perfect for warm growing conditions and those with bright, indirect light.  Even though this plant can stay compact and bloom small it requires a good bit of light to stay happy.  Can easily be grown mounted or in hanging baskets, thanks to its Epidendrum magnoliae parentage.

     We are offering Blooming Size plants happily growing in 2” mesh pots.  Plants are large enough to flower anytime in the coming year.

    Cattleya (Ruth Gee 'Diamond Jubilee' FCC/AOS x Spring Climax)

    SKU:OE1416/50

    Cattleya (Ruth Gee 'Diamond Jubilee' FCC/AOS x Spring Climax)

    (Photo shows picture of what we expect these magnificent plants to look like)

    Nothing puts on a show quite like a gorgeous classic white Cattleya.  This new cross has the all the elements needed tp produce stunning specimens.  Both parents are large standards with pure white petals and a dark yellow throat and upper lip.  Flowers will be generous in size and we expect good bud count as well.  Extremely fragrant with sturdy foliage to boot.

    We have a nice batch of lovely plants in 5" pots that are flowering size.  A few may bloom this year but most will wait until next fall.  

     


     

    These beautiful plants were provided by our friends at a wholesale orchid nursery in Hawaii. The parents were virus free at the time of hybridizing but because we did not raise them in our greenhouses, we can not guarantee them to be virus free as we would our own lab grown material. Otherwise, we guarantee your satisfaction and safe delivery as with other plant purchases.

  7. Cymbidium dayanum album

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

    SKU:9233/35

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

    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. Great for hanging pots or baskets.

    These plants are Blooming Size in 3.5" pots, some are blooming now and all are expected to flower by next fall  These are ready for larger containers this season.

  8. Dendrobium finisterrae  *Unusual Species*

    Dendrobium finisterrae *Unusual Species*

    SKU:10566/25

    Dendrobium finisterrae

    Where do you go to find such an unusual looking orchid?  Why to the ends of the earth of course!  This prickly looking species is native to the Finisterre Mountain range in Papua, New Guinea.  The Latin root for the name of these mountains literally means End of the Earth.  Thankfully we don't have to travel that far anymore to add one to our collections.  Lush dark, green foliage rests on tapered pseudobulbs.  Bloom stems appear from the top of the growth in late spring and emerge to hold several green and white blooms.  The backs of the flowers are covered in prickly hairs, while the cupped lip shows dark maroon-red veins and spots.   Plants may lose some leaves during seasonal changes but should not lose all foliage unless plant is under extreme stress.  Even then, if leaves drop simply water carefully until new growth appears. 

    Growing Suggestions:  We suggest this as an intermediate grower.  In nature plants are found at high elevations where light is bright but temperatures are mostly cool year round.  Leaves can burn under high temperature or too bright light.  Maintain at least some water and humidity year round (no dry spell) but more is needed during the warm growing months.  

      We have a limited quantity of these plants happily growing in 2.5" pots.  Plants are expected to be flowering size in approximately two years.

  9. Dendrobium trantuanii *Rare Miniature*

    Dendrobium trantuanii *Rare Miniature*

    SKU:10567/25

    Dendrobium trantuanii

    This showstopping miniature is back on the scene!  Originally from Vietnam, this species is best known for its generous flower size on diminutive plants.  Short (approximately 6" tall), flattened pseudobulbs carry pairs of silvery-pale green leaves through most of the year.  Plants are at least partly deciduous, dropping leaves when they experience changes in growing conditions or climate.  (If leaves turn yellow and drop when moving the plant from one location to another this doesn't mean it is lost.)  The white and pink blushed blooms have a plastic-like appearance with a shiny texture. Slightly sweet but musty fragrance that is not overpowering. 

    Growing Suggestions:  Since this species has not been as widespread in cultivation up until now, some growers are still discovering the best way to cultivate plants.  They seem to appreciate pots with a loose-well draining media that still holds humidity for the delicate roots.  Can be grown on mounts but frequent watering will be needed to keep the plant hydrated.  Bright, indirect light is best for mature plants.  Younger seedlings can be acclimated from medium to bright light over time, to encourage stronger growths and better flowering.  

     We have a small batch of these plants happily growing in 2.5" pots.  Plants are flowering size, and some have even bloomed in the past.  New flowers are expected in the next 6-12 months, in season.

    Wonderful warm loving species native to Brazil.  We have used our best semi-alba in this grex.  Petals will be icy white and contrast with a inky purple trumpet shaped lip.  Extremely fragrant.  This is a large grower that will need light and space to mature.
