    SKU:9814/30

    Photo of Dendrobium anceps shown courtesy of Lourens Grobler.

    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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. Laelia purpurata var. alba ‘June Bride’ AM/AOS x Laelia purpurata var. alba ‘Elias’ HCC/AOS

    Laelia purpurata var. alba ‘June Bride’ AM/AOS x Laelia purpurata var. alba ‘Elias’ HCC/AOS

    SKU:9662/25

    As seen on the cover of our Holiday 2016 catalog.

    This pure white form is considered one of the rarest colors of this species. We used our two best and most floriferous parents in this new offering. Very Fragrant.

    This species should be grown in very bright, indirect light and prefers 65-85 degrees year round if possible.  Plants can tolerate cooler temperatures if kept dry. Large growing, and needs plenty of space as they grow.

  7. 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.
