  1. 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.

  2. Holcoglossum wangii

    Holcoglossum wangii

    SKU:10035/25

    Holcoglossum wangii

    This rare and unusual species hails from select regions of China and Vietnam where conditions of shady most of the year, with very high humidity. Plants have terete foliage, and are usually grown pedant, with leaves hanging downward as they mature.  Bloom stems emerge on slender inflorescences, and have white petal segments with darker reddish-purple spotting near the heart.  Flowers have an open 'windmill' shape, with each petal having a bit of a twist as the base.

    Growing Suggestions: Perfectly suited for intermediate to warm temperatures, usually 65-85 degrees.  Since many people grow these in baskets or on mounts, high humidity is a must in addition to almost daily watering or mistings.  Medium to bright light, depending on how much airflow is available, will be best.  Fertilize year round, every third or fourth watering. Don't repot or re-mount too often as plants do not like to be disturbed once they are settled.

    We have available Blooming Size plants in 2.5" pots.  First flowers are expected in the next 6-12 months, in season.
