  • Coelogyne xyrekes - Orchids for the People

    Coelogyne xyrekes

    Well-established blooming-size plant in a 4" basket. Flower color, especially in the lip, may vary slightly because these are from seed, not divisions.  This is a beautiful plant with beautiful flowers! The flowers are formed on a pendant spike so it's best to plant this species in a hanging basket or pot to fully enjoy the flowers. The large, long-lasting flowers are approx 2.5-3" across. Petals are a very light rosy pink and the lip is brick red/cinnamon and the flowers are sweetly fragrant. Each spike produces 3-6 flowers successively. Each new flower blooms just as its predecessor is wilting. More mature plants will produce many flower spikes at the same time. It's a non-stop show for months!Care: Cool to hot temps, indirect-bright indirect light, regular year-round watering, and light feeding. The warmer the growing conditions, the more often it should be watered.

  • Last stock! Compot: Epidendrum parkinsonianum - Orchids for the People

    Compot: Epidendrum parkinsonianum

    Well-established near blooming size seedlings that can be potted or mounted immediately. This is a complete flask (30+ plants) that was compotted in the summer of 2021. I estimate there are approximately 20-25 plants in each compot. These are the only 3 available this year. We've done the chore of deflasking, all you have to do is pot them up! Great for a retailer or orchid society!This plant produces beautiful long (over 12"), fleshy, folded, pendant blue-green leaves. The large flowers have a white lip and yellow-green petals. There are usually 3-5 flowers per stem and they are fragrant (citrus/jasmine smell) especially at night. Usually flowers anytime a leaf matures, which can happen multiple times a year. Prefers to be mounted or in hanging basket.Care: Prefers cool-intermediate temps and bright indirect light. Regular watering and light feeding year-round, with a short dry period in between waterings.

  • Last stock! Dendrobium (aduncum x trantuanii) - Orchids for the People

    Dendrobium (aduncum x trantuanii)

    Well-established size plant in a 3.25" pot. One of our newest hybrids! We have been impressed with this cross's vigor and ability to flower at a very young age. These plants will stay compact and relatively small (we expect them to max out at about a foot tall). Produces 1-3 1" pink flowers at each node on leafless, mature canes. The older, leafless canes produce flowers for several years so the show just keeps getting better! This plant does well mounted, in hanging baskets or in a pot. Care: cool-hot (doesn't mind slightly cooler temps in the winter), bright indirect light, wet spring-fall with regular feeding, and a drier winter rest period.

  • Last stock! Dendrobium Pauline Rankin - Orchids for the People

    Dendrobium Pauline Rankin

    Dendrobium (speciosum x tetragonum) x D tetragonum: Blooming size in 3.25" pot We remade this beautiful hybrid a couple of years ago and have been very happy with the results. These plants started blooming at a really small size and have remained compact (the new canes are currently 4-6" long). And the stems are square! D. tetragonum (one of the parents) has slender, square stems but these are big blocky square stems.The star-shaped flowers are yellow with beautiful red markings on the sepals, petals, and lip. The number of markings vary from plant to plant. Plus, the flowers are huge for the size of the plant! The first time they flowered each spike had 2 flowers and this time around they had 4 so chances are the flower count will continue to go up as the plants mature. Care: Bright indirect light, moist and warm in the summer, cool and drier in the winter.

    Well-established blooming size plant in a 2" pot.  Dendrochilums are often called 'grass orchids' for their leaves or 'fox tail orchids' for their beautiful displays of long, many-flowered spikes. D steophyllum is a medium-small (6" tall) sized Dendrochilum with spikes that will carry 40-50 white flowers.

  • Dendrochilum tenellum - Orchids for the People

    Dendrochilum tenellum

    Well-established blooming size plant in a 2.25" pot.  These plants are often called Grass Orchids (because of the leaves) or Fox Tail Orchids (because of the inflorescence). I like these tiny plants for a number of reasons. They are easy to grow and get large, for a miniature, fast. A specimen-size plant fits easily in a 4" pot. Our specimen-size plant produces hundreds of tiny arching inflorescences in flower at the same time! That's thousands of tiny flowers open at the same time! Care tip: These plants should never dry out completely.

  • Dracula amaliae - Orchids for the People

    Dracula amaliae

    Well-established blooming size plant in a 3" net pot. This species produces flowers that truly have a monkey face (I actually see baboon)! Most Dracula species have more cryptic color patterns, but not this one! The white flowers with red tepals really stand out. The main body of the flower is 1.5" and the overall length is 4.5". Not only that, each flower spike will produce 2-5 flowers in succession over a period of a couple of months. The 4" flower spikes will emerge from around the margin of the plant as well as out of the sides and bottom of the basket and the flowers face down. Must be hung because of the flowering habit.These plants are wonderful to own if you can give them what they want. Care: Cool, moist, and shady is the mantra for Draculas. We give our plants lots of light in the winter and lots of shade in the summer.  The nice thing about this group is if you can grow one Drac you can pretty much grow them all. Like their cousins the Masdevallias, when these plants are happy they grow like weeds and are prolific flowerers.

    Dracula benedictii. Recently repotted blooming size plant in a 3" net pot. This species produces small (about the size of a quarter with sepals that are 1" long) mahogany colored (white on the backside of the sepals) flowers that truly have a monkey face! Flowers late winter-summer for us and a plant the size of the one in this listing can produce 5-10 flower spikes all at once. Not only that, each flower spike will produce 2-4 flowers in succession over a period of a couple of months. The 2-3" flower spikes emerge around the margin of the plant and head down and hug the basket. The flowers face down. When seen from below it looks like a pack of dark-furred mini monkeys staring down at you! should be hung in a basket.These plants are wonderful to own if you can give them what they want. Dracula culture is simple; cool, moist, and shady. Minimum low temp of 46 degrees F and a high of around 85. Anything over 80, keep the plant really wet. We like to water them morning and evening at least a couple of times a week in the summer. Folks with greenhouses that have swamp coolers grow them directly in front of the cooler. We give our plants lots of light in the winter and lots of shade in the summer. The nice thing about this group is if you can grow one Drac you can pretty much grow them all. Like their cousins the Masdevallias, when these plants are happy they grow like weeds and are prolific flowerers. Here at Orchids For The People we love our Draculas! This group of orchids is one of the reasons the boss initially became interested in growing orchids. When a professor of his told the story of Dracula vampira, no one in the class believed anyone could give a plant such a crazy name. After a little research (this was before orchidspecies.com!) he found out low and behold there was such a thing. Thus began a twenty-five-year excursion through the orchid world.
