Flasks

Carter and Holmes Orchids is first and foremost a Cattleya Orchid nursery so the majority of our offerings will be in that alliance.  Cattleyas, Laelias, Miniature and Compact Breeding and much more. 

 FLASKS ARE DO NOT RECEIVE DISCOUNTS- Prices listed below are Net Pricing

 

Most of our flasks are glass with rubber stoppers and can have different numbers of plants depending on the genus and stage.  Occasionally we use plastic tubs to allow better access to wide leafed plants.  Please read each description carefully for more information. Availability is very limited and usually only offered for a short time. Be prepared to work on your flask as soon as it arrives since shipping can loosen media and dislodge plants. 

There will not always be items in this category as material moves quickly through our lab.

FINALS- Our term for flasks in the final lab stages.  In most cases plants are ready to be moved into compots immediately. This represents the majority of our offerings.

SPREADS- Our Term for flasks at an intermediate stage.  This means they are small but well formed plants that need to be moved on 'Finals' and allowed to get larger before moving to the greenhouse.  Great for small labs or classroom/university projects.

MOTHER FLASKS- This is the first step after planting orchid seed.  Mother flasks hold literally hundreds if not a thousand baby orchids.  These must be kept in a lab setting and moved onto other media.  Not offered often since there are so many in a bottle.

 

A Reminder: Orchids in this category are NOT in pots, or anywhere near flowering size.  These are for commercial or hobby growers that have the time and patience to start babies from this earliest phase.

Extremely fragrant trumpet shaped blooms with white or blushed petals and a purple lip veining.  Great for beginners and collectors alike!  Seedlings are growing extremely fast and are expected to reach flowering size when young.   We can't wait to see how they turn out!

     

    We are offering flasks ready to be planted into community pots now.  Yield will be approximately 15-18 plants per bottle.  These are offered for a very limited time since we are almost ready to send these to the greenhouse ourselves.

  2. Phalaenopsis gigantea' Johnette' x self *FLASK*

    Phalaenopsis gigantea' Johnette' x self *FLASK*

    SKU:10386/Flask

    Phalaenopsis gigantea 'Johnette' x self

    This is the queen of the phalaenopsis species.  Known for its large growth habit with beautiful silvery green foliage and pendant bloom stems.  Long inflorescences carry dozens of  waxy, cream colored blooms overlaid with marooon-red spots.  Very fragrant.  Mature plants will eventually need to be grown hanging from a basket or mount to allow for the bloom stems.  Younger seedlings do well in compots, and then individual pots.  Moisture retentive media (like sphagnum) is a must for younger plants and roots should be disturbed as little as possible.  

    We are offering flasks ready to be planted into community pots now.  Yield will be approximately 15-20 plants per bottle.  These are offered for a very limited time since we are almost ready to send these to the greenhouse ourselves.
