  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.

  3. 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 purpurata coerulea 'Sweet Twilight'

    Laelia purpurata coerulea 'Sweet Twilight' x Laelia purpurata werkhauseri 'Blue Sky'

    SKU:10176/25

    This Brazilian species is considered the 'Queen of the Laelias'. Once you enjoy the elegant show-stopping displays of spring time flowers you will agree!  This grex uses two different 'blue-lipped' forms to produce a new generation of seedlings that will have petals either pure white or slightly smokey gray. The trumpet shaped lips will have colors from slate to hyacinth combined with a heady floral fragrance.  Recommended for greenhouse or shade-house culture because they will need plenty of warm, bright light to mature.

    Phalaenopsis equestris x sibling

    SKU:10350/25

    Phalaenopsis equestris

    This offering is the result of line-breeding from the famous awarded 'Riverbend' cultivar.  Miniature growing plants will have sprays of dark lavender and white blooms.  The bloom stems continue to produce buds at the end for months after initial flowering is over.  Another plus is the fact that this species is known for producing keikis easily.

    These should be grown in intermediate to warm conditions year round and low light (1200-1500 foot candles) for best results.  They tend to make a lot of air roots vs. roots insode their pots which makes them ideal for mounts or small baskets. 

    We have a limited amount of seedlings ready for the first time.  We expect more to be ready at a later date. 

    Plants are currently growing in 2.5" pots and are near flowering size.  This means they are expected to bloom spikes in about 12-18 months.   Please Limit to One per Customer.

    Pricing on this item is Net and no further discounts will apply.
