  1. Dendrobium finisterrae  *Unusual Species*

    Dendrobium finisterrae *Unusual Species*

    SKU:10566/25

    Dendrobium finisterrae

    Where do you go to find such an unusual looking orchid?  Why to the ends of the earth of course!  This prickly looking species is native to the Finisterre Mountain range in Papua, New Guinea.  The Latin root for the name of these mountains literally means End of the Earth.  Thankfully we don't have to travel that far anymore to add one to our collections.  Lush dark, green foliage rests on tapered pseudobulbs.  Bloom stems appear from the top of the growth in late spring and emerge to hold several green and white blooms.  The backs of the flowers are covered in prickly hairs, while the cupped lip shows dark maroon-red veins and spots.   Plants may lose some leaves during seasonal changes but should not lose all foliage unless plant is under extreme stress.  Even then, if leaves drop simply water carefully until new growth appears. 

    Growing Suggestions:  We suggest this as an intermediate grower.  In nature plants are found at high elevations where light is bright but temperatures are mostly cool year round.  Leaves can burn under high temperature or too bright light.  Maintain at least some water and humidity year round (no dry spell) but more is needed during the warm growing months.  

      We have a limited quantity of these plants happily growing in 2.5" pots.  Plants are expected to be flowering size in approximately two years.

    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.

  2. Paph. appletonianum *Species*

    Paph. appletonianum *Species*

    SKU:PaphApple/40

    Paphiopedilum appletonianum

    ('Fox Valley' AM/AOS x self)

    This wonderful species is everything elegant and dainty in a ladyslipper.  Low growing, compact foliage is pale green and silver with darker flecks.  Tall stems hold pink and green blooms that seem to float in mid-air.  The awarded parent is a high-color form and we expect these to be the same.  As plants mature they will produce clumps of multiple growths that can easily be grown as specimens. (We do not recommend dividing plants unless you have experience doing so). 

    Growing Suggestions:   Easy to maintain and bring into the flower. These are great for most windowsill collections, alongside other Phalaenopsis and Ladyslippers. Moderate light and intermediate temperatures.  Like other ladyslippers, roots should not be allowed to dry out.  We encourage checking for water approximately twice per week.  Plants are well established and do not need repotting until at least next spring.

     We have plants well grown in 4" pots and large enough to bloom in season, late this coming winter.

  3. Pot. Paxton Brooks 'Orange Surprise'

    Potianara Paxton Brooks ‘Orange Surprise’ x Potinara Paxton Brooks ‘Sunset Glow’

    SKU:10046/25

    We flowered so many wonderful cultivars from the original grex, we had a hard time choosing our two favorites to create this sibling cross.  These seedlings are expected to be mostly compact growers, though a few larger growing plants are expected.  Flowers will be in a range of sunset tones from orange and peach to rose and some coral shades.  Warmth tolerant but the best flower coloring can appear in cooler temperatures.  Some of these will flower multiple times per year.  

    We have a nice crop of plants established in 2.5" pots.
