  • Stenorrhynchos speciosum - Orchids for the People

    Stenorrhynchos speciosum

    Well-established blooming size plant in a 3.25" pot.This is a very easy to grow species that can be treated like a normal houseplant! Prefers a terrestrial potting mix of ½ soil and ½ small bark in a wide, shallow pot (“bulb pan”). Large leaves are similar to hostas and are colored in bluish-green with white spotting when mature. The flower spikes emerge in winter and can flower from the end of December to sometime in February. This species is very tolerant of a wide range of temperatures and conditions and can grow into magnificent specimens with several growths. The flower spikes are from 12 to 18 inches tall and covered in many light red tubular flowers with a white tubular lip. The flowers last for several months. Care: Cool-warm temps, shade-indirect light, and regular watering and light feeding during the growing season with a drier rest period when dormant.

  • Thunia alba - Orchids for the People

    Thunia alba

    This orchid is rarely found for sale in the U.S. A native to SE Asia, this deciduous species quickly grows into a 4' plant that resembles bamboo with its oppositely alternating blue-green leaves. The fragrant, crystalline white flowers have a hairy, burnt orange lip and are held on a terminal inflorescence of 5-10 flowers.  The plant grows very quickly starting early spring but rarely produces more than one cane per year. In the fall the leaves will fall off and the plant will remain dormant all winter. We withhold water until the new growth is 2" tall the following spring. After the new growth reaches a foot or so we cut off the old cane and lay it flat on a moist substrate and eventually babies will grow at the nodes.

  • Tolumnia hawkesiana x T triquetra - Orchids for the People

    Tolumnia hawkesiana x T triquetra

    Blooming size 3 plant bare-root divisions. Please note: the plants will not be blooming upon arrival, the photo shows what to expect as far as plant/division size. Each plant is the size of a quarter with tightly overlapping leaves that grow in a single plane to produce what looks like a tiny palm frond. The plants are connected with a 1” long rhizome to form a branching string of plants. And it has flowers that are as large as the plant itself! Beautiful light pink, crystalline flowers with markings that differ from plant to plant. Flowers for us randomly throughout the year with long-lasting flowers. 2-4 flowers per spike. These plants need little to no potting media. We throw them in empty baskets, string them through our “wire walls” where we hang our mounted plants, etc. Great for mounting, the parent species both grow on twigs in the wild. Usually, one plant has what looks like a precarious hold on a tiny branch and the rest of the plants are dangling in free space! Care: These plants like bright-very bright light and intermediate to hot temps. Water often spring-fall and let them dry out between waterings in the winter.

This species prefers to be in a hanging basket and should be placed in one this year or early spring 2021.

  • Zootrophion dayanum - Orchids for the People

    Zootrophion dayanum

    Well-established blooming size plant in a 2.25" pot. Please note: the older leaves on the plant may have a few holes in them. This is not pest damage, just old leaves that were damaged while being moved a while back. Lots of new growth emerging and can be seen in the plant picture. This plant has flowers that never truly open. Instead a tiny slit forms in the side of the flower allowing the tiny gnats that pollinate it in. The flowers are dark purple on the outside and gold with purple dots on the inside. The flowers measure just under an inch long and last 6 weeks.  These plants grow well in cool to warm temps with medium/low light and should not be allowed to dry out completely. Flowers in the late fall. If you're into Pleurothallids, rare plants or the weird orchids, this is a good one!
