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.

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.
