  1. Cattleya bicolor 'Mendenhall-Beta' 4N

    Cattleya bicolor 'Mendenhall-Beta' 4N

    SKU:7757M/30

    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 3" 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 two years.

    THESE LOOK GREAT RIGHT NOW!!

  2. Cymbidium dayanum album

    Cymbidium dayanum album

    SKU:9233/40

    Cymbidium dayanum album 'Lady Elizabeth' CHM/AOS x self

    We have found that the seedlings of this award winning parent are fast growers and thrive in lower light levels than most Cymbidiums, though brighter conditions will increase bud count.

    Pendant stems of cream and faintly green flowers. As plants mature, multiple bloom stems are expected each year giving this excellent specimen potential.  Thin, grassy foliage that likes lots of airflow to prevent spotting. Great for hanging pots or baskets.

    Plants are flowering size and growing in 4" pots.

  3. 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.

    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.

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

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

    SKU:9982/30

    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 3" 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 large expected to flower for the first time within the coming 12 months.

  5. Phalaenopsis equestris x sibling

    Phalaenopsis equestris x sibling

    SKU:10350/25

    Phalaenopsis equestris

    This offering is the result of line-breeding from the famous awarded 'Riverbend' cultivar.  Miniature growing plants will have sprays of dark lavender and white blooms.  The bloom stems continue to produce buds at the end for months after initial flowering is over.  Another plus is the fact that this species is known for producing keikis easily.

    These should be grown in intermediate to warm conditions year round and low light (1200-1500 foot candles) for best results.  They tend to make a lot of air roots vs. roots insode their pots which makes them ideal for mounts or small baskets. 

    We have a limited amount of seedlings ready for the first time.  We expect more to be ready at a later date. 

    Plants are currently growing in 2.5" pots and are near flowering size.  This means they are expected to bloom spikes in about 12-18 months.   Please Limit to One per Customer.

  6. Phalaenopsis violacea var. indigo

    Phalaenopsis violacea var. indigo

    SKU:10487/30

    Phal. violacea indigo (Strain from Orchidview)

    These seedlings come from impressive pedigree and most will have the gorgeous ‘indigo’ blue coloring, though some magentas will pop up. Fragrant with a spicy, sweet scent. Plants are beautiful with lush foliage.  These should be grown in intermediate to warm conditions year round and low light (1200-1500 foot candles) for best results.

    A Note on 'Indigos'- This color form is not the same as coerulea, which is the natural light blue-lavender coloring found in this species.  The color form known as 'indigo' began at Orchidview with HP Norton's hybridizing for superb magenta colored blooms.  This grex and others we have offered represent line breeding using selfings and sibling crosses to achieve new generations of seedlings that will have high percentages of indigo blue flowers.  Each generation we hybridize for will have higher chances of these gorgeous dark blue flowers, though the exact shade of indigo can vary by plant and based on culture.

    Plants are currently growing in 3" pots and are flowering size.  This means they can produce bloom spikes at any time.   Please Limit to One per Customer.
