  1. 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.

  2. Cymbidium dayanum album

    Cymbidium dayanum album

    SKU:9233/40

    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.

    Plants are flowering size and growing in 4" pots.

  3. Cymbidium Jill 'Betty Jo. AM/AOS

    Cymbidium Jill 'Betty Jo' AM/AOS

    SKU:9717M/25

    This is a great favorite even after many years in our collection. A compact, quick grower that makes arching sprays of clear, green blooms with white and rose marked lips. Mature plants easily produce multiple stems each season. Warmth tolerant but still needs a slight temperature drop to induce flowers.

  5. Den. primulinum 'Magic' AM/AOS

    Den. primulinum 'Magic' AM/AOS x Den. loddigesii 'Gilbert'' ON MOUNTS

    SKU:9442/MT

    Dendrobium primulinum x loddigesii

    Pendant growing plants produce waterfalls of pink and cream blooms in late winter and early spring. Plants should have a semi-dry winter rest and a slightly cooler spell to initiate buds during which time many of the older leaves will drop.  Each spring, new lush foliage emerges to start the cycle again.  Easy to cultivate and so very showy!  

    Blooming Size plants growing on vertically hanging tree fern mounts.  Plants are currently dormant and without foliage.  Spring flower buds are expected to start emerging in the next four weeks or so.

    It has been a long time since we have been able to offer this rare and unusual species. Foliage appears to have a braided look with miniature yellow blooms appearing in the spring. Can tolerate a range of conditions but does best if shaded during the hottest months. Do not allow to stay dry for long.

  7. Doritis pulcherrima

    Doritis pulcherrima

    This new grex represents generations of line breeding for excellent dark, round blooms. A great species for beginners and collectors.  Tall, stems of medium sized blooms in late summer and into early fall.  This species offering needs similar growing conditions to most Phalaenopsis though they can tolerate conditions a bit brighter and warmer if needed.  

    We are offering vigorous plants in 3.5" pots that are large enough to to flower in the coming year.

  9. Encyclia granitica “Mendenhall’ x self

    Encyclia granitica “Mendenhall’ x self

    SKU:10181/25

    Encyclia granitica “Mendenhall’ x self 

    This unusual and hard to find species is native to upper regions of South America and is found growing in granite based or rocky outcroppings. Plants have long slender pseudobulbs when mature with narrow foliage emerging from the top of each growth.  Bloom stems are tall and branched holding dozens of small green and white blooms freckled with olive or tan markings. This is an extremely fragrant summertime showstopper!

     Lithophytes, or 'rock growing' orchids like this must be grown in very well draining media to prevent root rot. We are growing ours in mesh baskets with loose bark for the roots to cling to.  Encyclia granitica is warm to hot growing meaning it is perfect for southern climates and plants will not easily tolerate cooler winter conditions. We water these daily in the spring to late summer and less often during the fall and winter.  Watch foliage for spotting when kept cool or wet under closed conditions.  Extra airflow is very helpful.  Plants should be grown in bright, indirect light. When mature, extremely bright diffused light will promote the best flowerings.

    We are offering our small group of plants, a very limited number of near blooming size seedlings in 2" mesh baskets.

  10. 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.
