  1. 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.

    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. 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.

  3. Maxillaria variabilis (gold)

    Maxillaria Ben Berliner *New Size*

    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.

  5. Oncidium Tsiku Marguerite  *Larger Size*

    Oncidium Tsiku Marguerite *Larger Size*

    SKU:10354/40

    This miniature will look cute as a button gracing your tabletop or sunny windowsill. Small growing plants produce branched stems of tiny delicately pink blooms that carry a lovely and soft fragrance. Flowers last for weeks under normal conditions. Perfect for beginners and a great choice for under light culture.

    Plants prefer intermediate conditions with medium to bright indirect light and 65-85 degree temperatures. Roots are very fine so we suggest that you do not allow media to dry completely out, instead maintaining some moisture at all times.

    We have plants available in 4” pots, that all have multiple spikes, and are in spike stage to bud and bloom soon. Plants can be repotted into larger pots after flowering or next spring on new growth. Get yours before they are gone!

    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.

    Pot. Newberry Apricot x Pot. Newberry Delight 'Mendenhall' AM/AOS

    SKU:10216/25

    Pot. Newberry Apricot  x Pot. Newberry Delight 'Mendenhall' AM/AOS

    (Both parents are pictured)

    This is our newest miniature to compact growing cattleya selection.  This time we have combined our favorite red parent, Newberry Delight with Newberry Apricot.  The latter is an interesting combination of Blc. George King x Soph. coccinea.  We are expecting to see a range of red and orange blooms, with very round overlapping form.  Plants will be compact growers around 10" tall when mature.  We do suggest these for cool to intermediate conditions due to the recent Sophronitis influence. 

    We have Near Blooming Size plants in at least 2.5" pot size.  These are expected to flower for the first time within 12-18 months.

    Return of a sell-out Carter and Holmes Original!  Potinara Lynette and Alan is made by crossing the standard sized lavender Blc. Tribute with the miniature cool-growing species Sophronitis coccinea.  The result is compact plants with stems of boldly colored blooms, bright scarlet-orange shading over round yellow segments. The lip is a dark blood red. Plants will be best cultivated in cool to intermediate conditions which will also bring out the best bloom coloring. Get yours while supplies last!
