Phalaenopsis Species

We were very lucky to be the beneficiary of some extra Philippine Phalaenopsis species imported for the Santa Barbara International Orchid Fair last Summer. Because we got such a great deal, this is a great opportunity for you to pick up some imported Phalaenopsis species at a really good price.

These plants are now established, and have lots of new roots. The plants are nice robust plants, and doing well.

Because they have been recently imported, many do have blemishes or cracks on the leaves, or missing leaves, (see the photos below); however these plants were being grown in a nursery prior to import, so are not scarred up like jungle plants.

They are mounted on very inexpensive rafts, so your money is going towards the plant, not a piece of cork or hardwood. When you get the plant, you can leave it the way it is, or you can pot it up or remount it on something of your choice.

Imported Phal Species

Plants are $25 each; they are mature, flowering size and robust.
Some are in-spike now, (equestris).

Phalaenopsis equestris
Charming miniature-flowered species. Vigorous grower, easy bloomer. In this population, most have varying degrees of pink on the flowers and lips vary from yellow through orange and red to violet. Mounted.

 Phalaenopsis philippinensis
Mottled foliage. White flowers with yellow side lobes on the lips. This species is known for opening all of its flowers nearly simultaneously. Will generally branch or initiate multiple spikes. Mounted. Large plants.

Phalaenopsis schilleriana
Beautiful mottled foliage. Pink flowers. Large, branched panicles. One of the most beautiful of the Phalaenopsis species. Mounted. Large plants.

A note on labeling: While every effort is made to ensure that these plants are correctly labeled, the very fact that they have been recently imported, and are being sold before we see them flower, means that there is a possibility that you could get something unexpected. This is not always bad news, as we have not been able to select from these plants in flower, you may be getting something that we would normally want to keep for breeding purposes; and an occasional new species turns up under these conditions. This is part of the fun of buying newly imported plants.
