  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.

    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.

  4. Cattleya harrisoniae 'Homestead' x Cattleya harrisoniae

    Cattleya harrisoniae 'Homestead' x Cattleya harrisoniae

    SKU:10198/25

    Cattleya harrisoniae 'Homestead' x Cattleya harrisoniae

     This stunning species originates in Southeastern Brazil and is a lover of warm, bright conditions.  Tall, upright stems of bold heliotrope colored blooms in the middle of summer. Cattleya loddigesii and harrisoniana often have cases of mistaken identity, but this new grex is true and will flower similar to the photo shown.

     Best suited for shadehouses, lathehouses, greenhouses and other well-lit growing environments.  As this species prefers a bit of a dry spell over the winter months, this should be grown in a very well draining media that can dry out, or in hanging baskets with coarse media for the roots to cling to.  If grown too damp in the off-season roots will decline rapidly. 

     We are offering well established plants in 2” mesh baskets.

     Plants are currently very happy in 2.5” clay pots.  Near Blooming Size.

    SKU:10400/25

    Rhyncostylis coelestis

    This Asian species is prized for its stems of gorgeous blue, lavender or hyacinth colored blooms with a delightful, sweet perfume.

High humidity with frequent mistings are needed, and plants should be fertilized every third or fourth watering year round.
