  • 3.25" Waterdance Pots For Orchids - Orchids for the People

    3.25" Waterdance Pots For Orchids

    3.25" wide (at the top) x 3.75" tall square Waterdance pots.  Lightweight, durable, and relatively inexpensive. Here at the Orchids for the People nursery, this is our go-to pot for "4inch" plants!The advantage these pots have is the bottom. Instead of drain holes, these pots simply have a screen over the bottom. This allows air to easily circulate and penetrate the pots from the bottom and oxygenate the roots. Not only that, it also eliminates water pooling in the bottom of the pot eliminating the biggest source of root rot. In addition, any fine, decomposing potting medium falls right out the bottom, eliminating the accumulation of anaerobic "mud" in the bottom of the pot. Plus, these pots have "feet" at each corner which raise the bottom of the pot up off the table allowing for even better air circulation around the bottom of the pot. When used with our long-strand coconut fiber, we think it is one of the best ways to grow orchids!

  • Anacheilium cochleatum - Orchids for the People

    Anacheilium cochleatum

    Synonyms: Encyclia cochleata, Prosthechea cochleata Commonly known as the black orchid or the cockleshell orchid, around our nursery it is affectionately referred to as the octopus orchid. It is also the national flower of Belize. This is a very nice outcross of 2 great, large flowered parents. One has wide sepals and the other plant has nice long twisted sepals. Both have great color and are above average size. Anacheilium cochleatum randomly produces flower spikes year round, mostly spring-fall. 5-20+ flowers develop sequentially over a long period of time. Easy to grow and a prolific flowerer, it loves to be treated just like a Cattleya. Care: Intermediate-warm temperatures, bright indirect sunlight and regular year round watering and light feeding.

  • Anacheilium gilbertoi (syn Encyclia gilbertoi) - Orchids for the People

    Anacheilium gilbertoi (syn Encyclia gilbertoi)

    Well-established (potted in 4/22) plants with 2 leads in 4" baskets.The nickel-sized flowers are quite pretty and abundant on larger plants. Each flower spike will produce 5-15 flowers and they can last several months.Rarely available, this hardy, rambling Encyclia relative becomes a big plant in no time. For this reason, this species is best grown in hanging baskets so the new growths can envelop the basket and then continue to send new growth out into space! I do not recommend this plant for benchtop growing because it will crawl out of its pot and into every other pot near it.Care: Cool-intermediate temps, bright indirect light, regular watering, and light feeding spring-fall with a drier rest period in the winter.

  • Anthurium scandens - Orchids for the People

    Anthurium scandens

    A small, epiphytic, vining (the only Anthurium that is a vine), creeper widely distributed from southern Mexico to Central and South America, where it grows in a variety of habitats, at altitudes between sea level and 2700 m. It grows a well-developed system of roots to support the fleshy stems with elliptical leaves, glossy green above and mottled brown below, an upright or sometimes pendent inflorescence followed by very attractive, lavender, pearl-shaped berries. Care: This is an easy to care for plant! Bright indirect light, temps 58°F-80°F, and regular watering and light feeding year-round. When repotting use 50/50 small orchid bark and soil, or any orchid potting medium. May also be potted in a hanging basket or mounted. 


  • Bifrenaria harrisoniae - Orchids for the People

    Bifrenaria harrisoniae

    1-2 flowers are produced on new pseudobulbs in the spring and summer. Each white flower is approximately 3" across. The purple lip is covered with white hairs. The flowers are beautiful and the fruity fragrance is amazing! Care: Intermediate to warm temps, bright indirect light, regular watering, and a light feeding spring-fall with a much drier winter rest period.  One word of caution: these plants do not like to be repotted as they get older (they'll stop flowering for a year or so) so don't do it often, do it gently, and use a really good medium when you do it! Also, this orchid grows warm and needs a dry winter rest after which, one should resume watering and fertilizer as the new growth appears in the spring.
