  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 trantuanii *Rare Miniature*

    Dendrobium trantuanii *Rare Miniature*

    SKU:10567/25

    Dendrobium trantuanii

    This showstopping miniature is back on the scene!  Originally from Vietnam, this species is best known for its generous flower size on diminutive plants.  Short (approximately 6" tall), flattened pseudobulbs carry pairs of silvery-pale green leaves through most of the year.  Plants are at least partly deciduous, dropping leaves when they experience changes in growing conditions or climate.  (If leaves turn yellow and drop when moving the plant from one location to another this doesn't mean it is lost.)  The white and pink blushed blooms have a plastic-like appearance with a shiny texture. Slightly sweet but musty fragrance that is not overpowering. 

    Growing Suggestions:  Since this species has not been as widespread in cultivation up until now, some growers are still discovering the best way to cultivate plants.  They seem to appreciate pots with a loose-well draining media that still holds humidity for the delicate roots.  Can be grown on mounts but frequent watering will be needed to keep the plant hydrated.  Bright, indirect light is best for mature plants.  Younger seedlings can be acclimated from medium to bright light over time, to encourage stronger growths and better flowering.  

     We have a small batch of these plants happily growing in 2.5" pots.  Plants are flowering size, and some have even bloomed in the past.  New flowers are expected in the next 6-12 months, in season.

  3. Dyakia hendersoniana *Miniature*

    Dyakia hendersoniana *Miniature*

    SKU:10422/25

    We can't say enough good things about this adorable miniature with the flamingo pink blooms! Once considered an Ascocentrum, this Vanda alliance species is relatively easy to care for if you remember a few things. Great for growing indoors, and under artificial lights where space is an issue.  Did we mention this species is very miniature?

    Low to medium light, similar to Phalaenopsis conditions are best.  Very bright light can cause dehydrated and stressed foliage.  Even plants grown in pots have unruly aerial roots which means high humidity is a plus, in addition to regular watering. Plants can be grown in pots with bark or sphagnum moss Always provide good air movement (like all orchids) so humidity will not cause bacterial spotting of the leaves. 

    We are offering a crop of Flowering Size plants in 2.5" pots.  These are expected to bloom for the first time in the coming 6-12 months.

    Encyclia Newberry Tuity Fruity (just registered!)

    (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!

  5. Ladyslipper Orchid Duo

    Ladyslipper Orchid Duo

    SKU:LadyslipperDuo

    Paphiopedilum 'Ladyslipper Orchid'- Set of Two Plants

    For those wanting to try something new and interesting, these Ladyslipper orchids are the way to go. Culture requirements are very similar to Phalaenopsis, but they like more moisture at their 'feet'. Hybrids bred from Maudiae type parentage stay compact and won't outgrow your space. Plants have two-tone foliage and each stem holds a beautiful bloom for months.

    Growing Suggestions: We suggest these for intermediate growing conditions only, either in the greenhouse or home. Low to medium light is best, with good air flow to keep leaves happy and spot-free.  Water just before the media is completely dried through (one to two times per week), and fertilize every 3rd or 4th watering except in the winter months. (We recommended alternating with Cal-Mag 15-5-15 and your regular balanced fertilizer.) Plants should not be repotted too often, and need snug fitting containers that drain well.

    For a very limited time, we are offering a set of two hybrids selected for their gorgeous coloring and beautiful foliage.  You will receive one each of the plants listed below.  These are established in 4" pots, and are flowering size.  (Plants are expected to produce buds within the next 6-12 months.) Photos show what blooms may look like on these plants.

     

    * Paphiopedilum Saiun (Paph. sukhakulii x Paph. wardii)- Cross was made using the green or 'alba' forms of both parents.  The result is seedlings with strong influence from the sukhakulii pod parent.  The lush foliage and the flower pouches tend to show the more distinct markings of wardii

     

    * Paphiopedilum Wolf's Folly (Paph. wardii x Paph. Dire Wolf)-- A new cross that again uses an album species parent this time blended with a strong Maudiae-type parent.  The wardii veining is visible on the pouch

     This is a specially priced offering and no further discounts or promo codes will apply.

  7. Laelia purpurata coerulea 'Sweet Twilight'

    Laelia purpurata coerulea 'Sweet Twilight' x Laelia purpurata werkhauseri 'Blue Sky'

    SKU:10176/30

    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.   

     We have plants available in 3" pots.

  8. Laelia rubescens (alba x aurea) x sib *New Rare Species*

    Laelia rubescens (alba x aurea) x sib *New Rare Species*

    SKU:9982/25

    Laelia rubescens (alba x aurea) x sib

    This hard to find species is native to Mexico and down through Central America, usually in areas with warm, bright conditions. Plants have rounded, short and rather flat pseudobulbs with thick rounded foliage.  Each fall after the summer growing period is over, tall bloom stems emerge to bloom usually by November.  This form was made using both white and yellow parents.  The results being flowers are a creamy off-white with black “eyes” in the center  Mature plants can hold multiple stems each season, with dozens of flowers making quite an impressive sight.

    Growing Suggestions:  Recommended for warm growing conditions, meaning 65 degrees or warmer year round.  Plants can tolerate short periods of cooler weather if kept dry. As plants mature, brighter light will be needed than seedlings currently receive but be cautious of causing leaf blushing or burn as plants won't recover easily. We usually hang larger plants high in the greenhouse above other crops and they flower well. Well draining media is a must to avoid rot.  These are easily grown in hanging baskets or on mounts.  We also have found that a bit of a dry winter rest is appreciated in cooler climates.  Water just enough to keep roots and bulbs from shriveling. 

    We are offering these beauties in 2" mesh pots.  After they outgrow these containers in the next year or two they can be slid right into larger baskets with little fuss.  Plants are expected to be flowering size in approximately two years.
