  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. Dendrobium primulinum album *Rare*

    Dendrobium primulinum album *Rare*

    SKU:8844/25

    Dendrobium primulinum album 

    A beautiful form of this captivating species! The name 'primulinum' comes from its spring blooming season and while many seen for sale elsewhere are pink, offered here is the lovely and rare white version.  The growth habit is generally pendant, with the long slender canes hanging downward.  The blooms appear along the length of the new and old canes in late spring or early summer. Our plants are grown in clay pots with good drainage, but they can also be grown in hanging baskets or attached to mounts for a really nice show. This is a compact growing species, with growths less than a foot long when mature.

    Considered easy to grow, but these will need some specific growing conditions in order to do their best.  Very bright, though filtered light is best. Brighter light will make stronger canes and more blooms.  Plants will grow well in a range of temperatures from 55-85 degrees, but they do need a cool winter period for buds to set. If they are kept warm year round plants are not likely to flower.  We give ours water year round, though summertime is more frequently and winter is more like a heavy mist.  When in active growth from April through August water well and fertilize every third or fourth watering.  In the fall and winter, give just enough water to keep canes from shriveling. Plants will drop most or all foliage each year.  This is very normal.  Usually the last of the old leaves fall just as new spring growth is emerging.

    Plants are in 2.5" clay pots and are large enough to flower within one to two years.
