  2. Ctna. Capri 'Lea' AM/AOS x Encyclia tampensis alba

    Ctna. Capri 'Lea' AM/AOS x Encyclia tampensis alba

    SKU:10204/30

    Ctna. Capri 'Lea' AM/AOS x Encyclia tampensis alba

     A brand new hybrid that we are very excited about.  This first to flower was a very compact plant with dusky rose blooms with cream and purple lip coloring.  We expect to see a range of bloom colors from light rose to pinkish-tan.  Hopefully some of the seedlings will carry forward the Capri petal splashes.  Regardless, these will be cute and small growing plants with tight foliage habit.  Possibly free flowering in warm-climates.

    Excellent for warm growing conditions and suitable for baskets or on mounts.  The first parent has Broughtonia sanguinea in its parentage, and we have found it must have well draining media at all times.  Bright, indirect light will be best.

    We are offering Near Blooming Size plants growing in 3” mesh baskets.  Plants are expected to flower for the first time within 12-18 months.

  4. Encyclia Newberry Tuity Fruity

    Encyclia Newberry Tuity Fruity

    SKU:10200/20

    (Encyclia tampensis alba x granitica)

    Showy stems of apple green blooms in the height of summer. Some seedlings will show the tampensis white lip, and others may carry the dark freckles from the granitica parent. Expected to be extremely fragrant. Fast growing and highly recommended for basket or mount culture.  Perfect for warm climates and outdoor collections. 

    We have just recently seen our first flowers from this exciting new primary cross. Just as expected shades of green with some tan shading. And the scent!  Such a wonderful sweet fragrance! 

    We have Flowering Size plants in 2” mesh baskets. Most of these will flower for the first time next spring/summer.

  5. Epidendrum nocturnum

    Epidendrum nocturnum

    SKU:10311/30

    We acquired our compact growing strain from Eucagenera, many years ago. These have been fast growers and easy bloomers. Plants grow in clumps with pale cream and tan blooms that are only fragrant in the evening and overnight hours. Great for warm climates and does well with mount or basket culture.

    We have Blooming Size plants in 3” mesh baskets that are large enough to bud and flower at any time.  As they mature, plants become free-flowering year round.

  6. Laelia Coronet

    Laelia Coronet

    SKU:9635/25

    (cinnabarina x harpophylla)

    We have remade this antique primary cross with select parents. Sprays of bright orange star-shaped blooms with lighter yellow and cream trumpet shaped lips. Very showy with a blooming season just right for winter shows! Very narrow, upright foliage that will blush if grown in bright light. We have found these do best in long-lasting but fast draining media so they are not disturbed too often. Can also be grown in a rock or gravel based media, and possibly on mounts.

    Plants are currently growing in 2.5" clay pots in well draining mix.  First flowering can be expected as early as this winter.

  7. Laelia rubescens (alba x aurea) x sib *New Rare Species*

    Laelia rubescens (alba x aurea) x sib *New Rare Species*

    SKU:9982/25

    Laelia rubescens (alba x aurea) x sib

    This hard to find species is native to Mexico and down through Central America, usually in areas with warm, bright conditions. Plants have rounded, short and rather flat pseudobulbs with thick rounded foliage.  Each fall after the summer growing period is over, tall bloom stems emerge to bloom usually by November.  This form was made using both white and yellow parents.  The results being flowers are a creamy off-white with black “eyes” in the center  Mature plants can hold multiple stems each season, with dozens of flowers making quite an impressive sight.

    Growing Suggestions:  Recommended for warm growing conditions, meaning 65 degrees or warmer year round.  Plants can tolerate short periods of cooler weather if kept dry. As plants mature, brighter light will be needed than seedlings currently receive but be cautious of causing leaf blushing or burn as plants won't recover easily. We usually hang larger plants high in the greenhouse above other crops and they flower well. Well draining media is a must to avoid rot.  These are easily grown in hanging baskets or on mounts.  We also have found that a bit of a dry winter rest is appreciated in cooler climates.  Water just enough to keep roots and bulbs from shriveling. 

    We are offering these beauties in 2" mesh pots.  After they outgrow these containers in the next year or two they can be slid right into larger baskets with little fuss.  Plants are expected to be flowering size in approximately two years.

    Lc. Floralia's Azul 'Sandra' AM/AOS x Cattleya amethystoglossa coerulea 'Blue Sky'

    (We are showing a photo of what we expect flowers to appear like).

    A new blue cattleya offering.  The first parent is a free flower compact grower with oversized blooms.  Lovely sweet fragrance.  The species amethystoglossa will add a cluster-style bloom habit and hopefully some blue and purple petal freckles. These are showing lush green foliage with semi-bifoliate growth habit.  Expected to mainly be winter blooms but there could be some surprises!

    We have a new crop of plants established in 2.5" pots.
