Cattleyas

Cattleyas, the royalty of the orchid family, are native to the slopes of the Andes in South America. On the mountain slopes they have moderate days and cool nights, so they appreciate a temperature drop in the evening. They are comfortable at temperatures as low as 55 degrees at night, with days in the 70's or higher. They need bright light (not full sun) to flower. They must have good drainage, and like to dry a bit between waterings. Fertilize lightly when they are in active growth. Repot in a well draining mix, like our Cypress blends, when they have outgrown the pot or the mix has broken down (every two or three years).

Please refer to individual items for time expected until first blooming. Many of our offerings are young plants that will need to be grown to flowering size.  Unless otherwise stated in the description, items listed are not sent in spike, bud or bloom.

  2. Cattleya trianae 'A.C. Burrage' AM/AOS *Rare Species*

    Cattleya trianae 'A.C. Burrage' AM/AOS *Rare Species*

    SKU:8060M/25

    Cattleya trianae 'A.C. Burrage' AM/AOS 

    This special cultivar was named after the first president of the American Orchid Society. Our plants are tissue cultured from the original plant granted an Award of Merit from the AOS in 1939 and from the RHS in 1948.  Blooms are a soft lavender-pink with purple and yellow coloring on the lip.  Excellent round form and good substance.  This item is not often available so get yours while you can!

    This is a good grower with sturdy foliage.  Requires standard cattleya conditions, meaning bright indirect light and a day/night temperature change. We are offering plants established in 2.5" pots.  We expect these to be flowering size in approximately 3 years.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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 Coronet

    Laelia Coronet

    SKU:9635/25

    (cinnabarina x harpophylla)

    We have remade this antique primary cross with select parents. Sprays of bright orange star-shaped blooms with lighter yellow and cream trumpet shaped lips. Very showy with a blooming season just right for winter shows! Very narrow, upright foliage that will blush if grown in bright light. We have found these do best in long-lasting but fast draining media so they are not disturbed too often. Can also be grown in a rock or gravel based media, and possibly on mounts.

    Plants are currently growing in 2.5" clay pots in well draining mix.  First flowering can be expected as early as this winter.

  9. 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.
