    Brassavola digbyana 

    An ever popular species that needs no introduction. Beautiful, waxy green blooms with a deeply fringed lip and a heavenly fragrance. Needs to be grown in bright light and warm temperatures year round.  Plants can be slow to grow, but once they reach flowering size are worth the wait. Should only be grown in media or containers with excellent drainage otherwise plants will easily lose roots from over watering.

  2. Cattleya Alliance Starter Collection *Five Plants*

    Cattleya Alliance Starter Collection *Five Plants*

    SKU:10294/50

    Cattleya Alliance Starter Collection

    (Photos shown are examples only)

    Cattleyas and their relations are considered to be royalty among orchids.  Nothing seems quite as showy or classic, as a well grown Cattleya in full glory.  What we love most about this part of the orchid family, is the range of colors, shapes, sizes and even fragrances that are available for the discerning collector. Most growers start their orchid journey with a Phalaenopsis and perhaps even a Ladyslipper or Dancing Lady orchid. These make great beginner plants to try and they do well in most home growing environments.  But what happens when your conditions change or you are ready to try something new and different?  

    That is where the idea for our latest collection came from.  Included will be Five different Cattleya plants from within the Cattleya alliance.  (Meaning Cattleya, Laelia, Brassavola, and intergenerics of these kinds).  Our growers will include a different plant for each of the criteria listed below.  Growing requirements may vary depending on what received, giving you the grower a chance to experience a wide range of selections.  All plants included will be in 2.5"-3" pots.  Some will be ready for new containers this coming spring season. Some will be close to flowering size, and others will take a few years.  

    * Miniature or Compact Grower

    * Easy to Grow Species

    * Grower Suitable for Mount Culture

    * Carter and Holmes Original Mericlone

    * Carter and Holmes Hybrid, Meaning Seed-Grown

  3. Cattleya bicolor 'Mendenhall-Beta' 4N

    Cattleya bicolor 'Mendenhall-Beta' 4N

    SKU:7757M/25

    A tall, slender growing Brazilian species that loves bright light and warm temperatures. Clusters of waxy green blooms with bright fuchsia lips appear above bifoliate foliage. These are mericlones from our presumed tetraploid 'Mendenhall-Beta'. Great coloring and incredible substance.  As with most 4N, they are bit slower growing but no less vigorous.

    We are offering plants growing in 2" mesh baskets and chunky tree fern media.  We have found that this species does not take well to over watering, especially during the winter months.  Our suggestion for these seedlings is to mist heavily 3 to 4 times per week during the winter, and daily during the warmer summer months. First flowers are expected within three years.

    THESE LOOK GREAT RIGHT NOW!!

  5. Cattleya harrisoniae 'Homestead' x Cattleya harrisoniae *New*

    Cattleya harrisoniae 'Homestead' x Cattleya harrisoniae *New*

    SKU:10198/30

    Cattleya harrisoniae 'Homestead' x Cattleya harrisoniae

     This stunning species originates in Southeastern Brazil and is a lover of warm, bright conditions.  Tall, upright stems of bold heliotrope colored blooms in the middle of summer. Cattleya loddigesii and harrisoniana often have cases of mistaken identity, but this new grex is true and will flower similar to the photo shown.

     Best suited for shadehouses, lathehouses, greenhouses and other well-lit growing environments.  As this species prefers a bit of a dry spell over the winter months, this should be grown in a very well draining media that can dry out, or in hanging baskets with coarse media for the roots to cling to.  If grown too damp in the off-season roots will decline rapidly. 

     We are offering well established plants in 3” mesh baskets, that are already showing growth for this spring.  Plants are expected to reach flowering size in 2-3 years or less, in some conditions.

    It has been a long time since we have been able to offer this rare and unusual species. Foliage appears to have a braided look with miniature yellow blooms appearing in the spring. Can tolerate a range of conditions but does best if shaded during the hottest months. Do not allow to stay dry for long.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
