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. Looking to fill that tiny space in your greenhouse? Are you a mini junkie (like me!)? Here is a great one! 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.
Seedling size plant (2-3 years from flowering) in a 2.25" pot. Bred inhouse, the parents of these babies are both "Wild Type". The flowers have very light lavender-blue petals and sepals with almost ghost-like veins of darker color. This species prefers cool to warm temps, very bright light-direct sunlight and water every 1-3 days spring-fall with a drier winter rest. This species prefers to be in a hanging basket and should be placed in one this year or early spring 2021.
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!
Well-established blooming size plant division in a 2.25" pot. 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. Purple and white flowers measure just under an inch long and last 6 weeks. For us, the plant flowers in the late fall. These plants grow well in cool to intermediate temps with medium/low light and should not be allowed to dry out completely. As you can see in the pics, specimen plants form a creeping mat and grow well on vertical or horizontal plaques. If you're into Pleurothallids, rare plants or the weird ones-this is one!
