  1. Bpl. Fiftieth Anniversary 'Newberry'

    Bpl. Fiftieth Anniversary 'Newberry'

    SKU:9378M/25

    Bpl. Fiftieth Anniversary 'Newberry'

     (Bl. Richard Mueller x Epidendrum magnoliae)

     Return of a customer favorite!  This mericlone is a compact grower with semi-terete foliage and sprays of golden-yellow blooms.  We have found flowering season is primarily in summer and fall but mature plants or those grown in warm climates will be free-flowering.  Which means flowering in any season and more than once per year!

     Perfect for warm growing conditions and those with bright, indirect light.  Even though this plant can stay compact and bloom small it requires a good bit of light to stay happy.  Can easily be grown mounted or in hanging baskets, thanks to its Epidendrum magnoliae parentage.

     We are offering Blooming Size plants happily growing in 2” mesh pots.  Plants are large enough to flower anytime in the coming year.

     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.

  2. Cattleya bicolor 'Mendenhall-Beta' 4N

    Cattleya bicolor 'Mendenhall-Beta' 4N

    SKU:7757M/25

    A tall, slender growing Brazilian species that loves bright light and warm temperatures. Clusters of waxy green blooms with bright fuchsia lips appear above bifoliate foliage. These are mericlones from our presumed tetraploid 'Mendenhall-Beta'. Great coloring and incredible substance.  As with most 4N, they are bit slower growing but no less vigorous.

    We are offering plants growing in 2" mesh baskets and chunky tree fern media.  We have found that this species does not take well to over watering, especially during the winter months.  Our suggestion for these seedlings is to mist heavily 3 to 4 times per week during the winter, and daily during the warmer summer months. First flowers are expected within three years.

    THESE LOOK GREAT RIGHT NOW!!

  3. 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.

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

    SKU:10204/20

    Recently registered as

    Cycatonia Newberry Pink Butterflies

    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 2” mesh baskets.  Plants are expected to flower for the first time within 12-18 months.

    Encyclia Newberry Tuity Fruity

    SKU:10200/20

    Encyclia Newberry Tuity Fruity (just registered!)

    (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.

  6. 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.
