Phalaenopsis Orchids
Phalaenopsis Flasks, Seedlings & Stem Propagations

Other Orchid Genera

Most of these other Orchids are being grown with our Phals at 63 degrees minimum night temperature; although some are being grown where they can get more light, or at the cooler end of the house, or up in the rafters, where it gets really, really warm. In general, these are varieties that like Warm to Intermediate temperatures and moderate light. (More detailed photos of most of these offerings can be found in the Photo Gallery.)

Angcm. sesquipedale
Angraecum sesquipedale
Angraecum sesquipedale from seed
Probably the most famous species in the genus, this is the one that Darwin postulated would be pollenated by an unknown moth with a proboscis long enough to use the long nectary on these flowers. Everybody has to have one of these. Elegant.

Seedlings in 2.5 inch pots - $15.00

Bulb falcatum
Bulbophyllum falcatum 'Standing Tall' AM/AOS
Bulbophyllum falcatum 'Standing Tall' AM/AOS
Wild small stature Bulbophyllum with a bright red rachis, and chromium yellow flowers for a striking contrast. Just fantastic when in flower, flowering lasts for weeks. Grows like a weed, will fill a four inch basket in two years. (I grew 24 bulbs from two in two years; the plant below is the same plant after three years.) These are grown in New Zealand Sphagnum in plastic Vanda baskets, I hang them up in the rafters where it is warm and bright.

4 or 5 bulb division in 4" plastic Vanda basket - $50.00
2 bulb division in 3" clay pot - $40.00
Bulbophyllum falcatum

Bulb grandiflorum
Bulbophyllum grandiflorum
Bulbophyllum grandiflorum
A wild flower, spotted like a fawn. Another one that grows like a weed for me. This species flowers on and off all year for me, with several flowers at at time, but no big flush of flowers like some of the other species. Another one that seems to prefer warmth and reasonably bright light. Keep wet.

Min of 3 bulb division in moss in 4" plastic Vanda basket - $30.00

  Bulbophyllum lasiochilum
Seedlings from sib cross
The regular color form of this cute rambling species, this has whitish flowers with red to purple spotting. Easy grower.

Min of 4 bulb seedling in 1.75" net pot - $15.00

Bulb lobii
Bulbophyllum lobii
Bulbophyllum lobbii 'Kathy's Gold' AM/AOS
A classic Bulbophyllum. Awesome golden-orange flowers with maroon spotting on the backside, that last for weeks. Has a spicy fragrance that is not exactly delightful, but not nasty, either. This thing grows like a weed, rapidly becoming large specimen plants. These are grown in New Zealand Sphagnum in clay pots, I hang them up in the rafters where it is warm and bright.

Specimen-sized division in 5-1/2" clay pot - $80.00
Min of 3 bulb division in clay pot - $20.00

  Dendrobium wassellii 'Gold Country'
4-bulb Division
A division of Alan Koch's plant. Very unique club-shaped pseudobulbs with long many flowerwed infls. Takes very bright light to flower well.

4-bulb Division - $50.00

Neofinetia falcata 'Chousensetsu'
Neof. falcata
Neofinetia falcata 'Chousensetsu'

Neof. falcata 'Tamakongo' BM/JGP
Neofinetia falcata 'Tamakongo' BM/JGP

f2 Tol. Mem. Ralph Yagi
Tolumnea Memoria Ralph Yagi
Tolumnea Memoria Ralph Yagi 'Red Delight' X
Tolumnea Memoria Ralph Yagi 'Oka Delight'
A selfing and a sib of two very red Ralph Yagis, virtually no yellow on either of these clones. Three quarters of the seedlings are so nice that I don't want to sell them ... so I remade the cross this year. Most flowers are red and white, a few have pink on the lips, a very few have a hint of yellow color. Quite a few have lips that open white, and then slowly develop a peppering of tiny red dots that slowly coalesce, until the entire lip is pink. These end up being large plants for Tolumnias. These are growing in dolomite and charcoal in 1.75 inch clay pots with wire hangers that let them get all the warmth, light and air movement that they like. There are example pictures of a few more of these in the Photo Gallery under Misc. Genera.

Bloom size plants, some have flowered - $12.00

Vanilla grandiflora
Vanilla grandiflora
Three-node cuttings with aerial roots
Absolutely the best Vanilla I have ever grown, this one flowers readily. A monsterous plant, with a stem that gets thicker than your thumb, and very robust leaves up to 12 inches long. Flowers are large and yellow, flowering season is extended under high enough light. Originally acquired from the Fordyces, so if you have seen their Vanilla, this is it. Absolutely fantastic. Really needs high light, warmth and plenty of space to do well. Mine is up in the rafters at the warmest end of my warm house.

Three-node cuttings that will have short aerial roots - $30

Larger, rooted plants are often available at our nursery, but they do not ship well.
