  1. Ascofinetia Cherry Blossom

    Ascofinetia Cherry Blossom

    SKU:10564/25

    Ascofinetia Cherry Blossom

    (Neofinetia falcata ‘Chutenno’ x Asctm. ampullaceum [China Orange])

    A new remake of a classic miniature favorite.  The original cross yielded all soft pink and mauve blooms but this grex is also expected to add some orange coloring to the flowers giving a splash of pizzazz!  Great for small growing spaces as these will stay compact. Over time plants will produce multiple crowns for super showy specimens.

    Growing Suggestions: Best suited from intermediate to warm conditions like most members of the Vanda alliance.  Plants will reach approximately 10-12 inches across when mature, and have multiple growths or 'fans' per plant.  These should be grown in hanging baskets for best results, as they will have long aerial roots.  If grown in pots, always use a well-draining open media. High humidity with frequent mistings are needed, and plants should be fertilized every third or fourth watering year round.

    We have a small batch of these plants happily growing in 2.5" pots.  Plants are expected to flower for the first time within 12-18 months.

       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.

    These beautiful plants were provided by our friends at a wholesale orchid nursery in Hawaii. Because we did not raise them in our greenhouses, we can not guarantee them to be virus free as we would our own lab grown material. Otherwise, we guarantee your satisfaction and safe delivery as with other plant purchases.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    SKU:10058/25

    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.

    Lc. Newberry Bee Bop Pink

    SKU:10201/25

    Lc. Newberry Bee Bop Pink

    (Lc. Kiritsubo 'Southern Stars' x Lc. Newberry Prom Night 'Pretty in Pink')

    The pod parent is an adorable miniature that has already proven itself a breeder of very floriferous compact plants.  These will be extremely short growers, with clusters of soft pink or even cream blooms.  Both parents can bloom multiple times per year.  Will also be suitable for basket or mount culture. 

     Plants are sent as Near Blooming Size plants in 2.5” pots.

  10. Maxillaria variabilis (gold)

    Maxillaria Ben Berliner *New Size*

    SKU:10166/60

    Maxillaria Ben Berliner

    (Maxillaria variabilis (gold) x tenuifolia aurea)

    Our remake was made using the less common yellow forms of both species. We expect to see miniature yellow blooms, some with dark eyes and some with reddish freckles. The second parent is very fragrant so that may come through as well. These will prefer cool to intermediate temperatures and damp feet.  As they grow plants will become gorgeous specimens, suitable for baskets and hanging containers.  Flowers will appear mostly in the early to mid spring but plants can freely show blooms throughout the year.

    Growing Suggestions: We are currently growing these seedlings in containers with a light sphagnum moss blend.  This allows constant humidity around the roots without leading to rotten or soggy conditions.  Medium to bright light is best but plants must be kept in moderate temperatures to avoid leaf burn.  Good airflow is a must for healthy foliage.

     We are offering Blooming Size Plants growing in 6" plastic pots. These will not need to be repotted or disturbed for at least 12-18 months.
