  1. Ascofinetia Cherry Blossom

    Ascofinetia Cherry Blossom

    SKU:10564/25

    Ascofinetia Cherry Blossom

    (Neofinetia falcata ‘Chutenno’ x Asctm. ampullaceum [China Orange])

    A new remake of a classic miniature favorite.  The original cross yielded all soft pink and mauve blooms but this grex is also expected to add some orange coloring to the flowers giving a splash of pizzazz!  Great for small growing spaces as these will stay compact. Over time plants will produce multiple crowns for super showy specimens.

    Growing Suggestions: Best suited from intermediate to warm conditions like most members of the Vanda alliance.  Plants will reach approximately 10-12 inches across when mature, and have multiple growths or 'fans' per plant.  These should be grown in hanging baskets for best results, as they will have long aerial roots.  If grown in pots, always use a well-draining open media. High humidity with frequent mistings are needed, and plants should be fertilized every third or fourth watering year round.

    We have a small batch of these plants happily growing in 2.5" pots.  Plants are expected to flower for the first time within 12-18 months.

       To learn more about about this plant, including time to first flowering please click on the 'Additional Information' tab below.  Unless otherwise stated, please understand that bloom photos show mature sized plants not what those offered currently look like.

    These beautiful plants were provided by our friends at a wholesale orchid nursery in Hawaii. 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. 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.
