  1. Maxillaria variabilis (gold)

    Maxillaria Ben Berliner

    SKU:10166/60

    Maxillaria Ben Berliner

    (Maxillaria variabilis (gold) x tenuifolia aurea)

    Our remake was made using the less common yellow forms of both species. We expect to see miniature yellow blooms, some with dark eyes and some with reddish freckles. The second parent is very fragrant so that may come through as well. These will prefer cool to intermediate temperatures and damp feet.  As they grow plants will become gorgeous specimens, suitable for baskets and hanging containers.  Flowers will appear mostly in the early to mid spring but plants can freely show blooms throughout the year.

    Growing Suggestions: We are currently growing these seedlings in containers with a light sphagnum moss blend.  This allows constant humidity around the roots without leading to rotten or soggy conditions.  Medium to bright light is best but plants must be kept in moderate temperatures to avoid leaf burn.  Good airflow is a must for healthy foliage.

     We are offering Blooming Size Plants growing in 6" plastic pots. These will not need to be repotted or disturbed for at least 12-18 months.

    SKU:10081/30

    Phalaenopsis Tzu Chiang Balm x Phalaenopsis Brother Sara Gold

    (Picture of a first bloom seedling is shown)

    A very unique cross for an array of artshade blooms. The first parent is compact with multiple branched stems holding softly tinted peach or orange blooms with rose flushing and just a hint of fragrance. The pollen parent is a famous, boldly colored orange standard with a glowing bright lavender center. We will see a colorful range of peach to orange blooms with traces of lavender and pink blushing. Plants will be semi-compact and are expected to carry multi-floral stems easily as they mature.

     

    We have Blooming Size plants in at least 3" pots.  Plants are expected to spike and produce flowers this winter season.
