  • Pterostylis curta - Orchids for the People

    Pterostylis curta

    This is a very easy to grow terrestrial orchid from Australia. Plants arise from a small corm and can colonize a large pot very quickly. Best grown like Pleione, in a large, shallow "bulb pot" in a 3:1 soil to perlite mix. At our nursery, we keep the plants moderately moist and lightly fed throughout the growing cycle. When the plants start to look like they are dying we stop watering them.  We don't restart watering them until green leaves again develop. Corms can be collected while the plant is dormant or just leave em alone and they will continue to take over their pot. New plants will even develop from roots sticking out of drain holes.Definitely a conversation starter!

  • Restrepia brachypus - Orchids for the People

    Restrepia brachypus

    Large, well-established blooming size plant in a 3.5" pot. I'm not even going to try to describe these flowers because it won't do them justice! I'll let the pictures do the talking. I will tell you they measure just over 1" in length. Here at the nursery we just refer to them as "the alien cockroaches". Weird and eyecatching and at the same time very pretty!  Flowers randomly year-round.Prefers cool-intermediate temps, bright indirect light and regular watering year-round.

  • Sarcochilus fitzgeraldii - Orchids for the People

    Sarcochilus fitzgeraldii

    Well-established blooming size plant in a 3" net pot. Produces 10-15, beautiful quarter-sized, crystalline white flowers per spike that have a red center. These plants are currently large enough to produce multiple flower spikes per season. Care: Bright indirect light, cool-warm temps with good air movement, regular year-round watering, and light feeding. Protect from exessive summer heat as the plant reacts badly to hot stagnant conditions.

  • Scaphosepalum beluosum - Orchids for the People

    Scaphosepalum beluosum

    Very limited quantities! Scaphosepalums are cool! The flowers are weird, they bloom a lot, and the spikes last over a year. The plant size we offer is in flower 12 months a year! What more could you want? S beluosum flowers are about the size of a dime but worth bending over and getting close to view. Hairy and fanged, the flowers have a gold background with brown markings and a red/purple column. The spikes bloom successively in flushes so it appears the side of the pot or basket is covered in tiny alien insects! Each spike may produce over 30 flowers over its lifespan.  Young leaves are initially a purple/wine color and turn green as they mature. Under bright light conditions, the leaves will remain a blotchy purple/green combo. Beautiful striking foliage.Like almost pleurothallids, this plant should be grown cold-intermediate with shady, high humidity conditions with year-round watering. Should never be allowed to dry out completely. Here is a link to the amazing website orchidspecies.com for more info and pics.

  • Scaphyglottis prolifera - Orchids for the People

    Scaphyglottis prolifera

    Well-established blooming size plant in 2" pot.  This tiny flowered species is easy to grow with intermediate to warm temps, bright indirect light, and enough water and humidity to prevent it from drying out for long periods of time. It's a favorite at the nursery for its forking growth pattern that creates an open yet bushy plant.

    Stanhopea (jenischiana x tigrina)

    Near blooming-sized seedling in a 4" octagonal basket. 6-18 months from flowering. The reverse hybrid is registered as Stanhopea Nina Rach but I could find no images of it.

Regular watering year-round but allow to dry slightly between waterings.

    Stanhopea (oculata x tigrina v. nigroviolacea)

    Well established, near blooming size seedlings in a 2.25" pot. These plants are 1-2 years from blooming and should be repotted into baskets next spring. This should be an interesting cross and it will be fragrant!  Care: Intermediate to warm temps, regular watering, and light fertilizer throughout the year and prefers a moderately shady spot. The flower pics are the parent plants but we can only speculate on what these seedlings' flowers will look like. The plant picture is representative of the plant that will be shipped to the buyer.

  • Stanhopea Assidensis - Orchids for the People

    Stanhopea Assidensis

    Stanhopea Assidensis (wardi x tigrina). Well established in 3.5" plastic basket. Ready for a 6" basket! This is our own remake of this great hybrid.  Called "the flying aliens" around our nursery, every collection should have at least 1 Stanhopea! Crazy looking, big and fragrant!  The pictures speak for themselves! Remember, they have to be in hanging baskets because the flowers almost always emerge from the bottom of the newest growths and head straight down.Cool-warm temps, bright indirect light, regular watering spring-fall with a dry rest period in the winter.

  • Stanhopea platyceras x oculata - Orchids for the People

    Stanhopea platyceras x oculata

    Well established seedlings in a 4" octagonal basket. These plants are 1-2 years from blooming.This should be an interesting cross and it will definitely have spots and be fragrant!  We're hoping the eye spots and some of the yellow coloration from oculata are inherited. In North America most Stanhopea bloom summer-late fall.Care: Intermediate to warm temps, regular watering throughout the year and prefers a moderately shady spot.

    Well-established blooming size plant in a 2.25" pot.  This unusual species creates 10-40 tiny flowers per spike. Each flower will fit on your pinky nail. The flowers are maroon-red with a white, furry border. It reminds me of a string of small buttons. The plant multiple times a year! If you keep them happy (cool-wm, moist and in bright shade) these plants grow like grass! Great for vivariums.

  • 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.
