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.
A small, epiphytic, vining (the only Anthurium that is a vine), creeper widely distributed from southern Mexico to Central and South America, where it grows in a variety of habitats, at altitudes between sea level and 2700 m. It grows a well-developed system of roots to support the fleshy stems with elliptical leaves, glossy green above and mottled brown below, an upright or sometimes pendent inflorescence followed by very attractive, lavender, pearl-shaped berries. Care: This is an easy to care for plant! Bright indirect light, temps 58°F-80°F, and regular watering and light feeding year-round. When repotting use 50/50 small orchid bark and soil, or any orchid potting medium. May also be potted in a hanging basket or mounted.

An Orchids for the People in-house hybrid!A very nice compact, upright, easy-to-grow orchid. The flowers are 1.5" wide with yellow petals and a wide, pointed white lip. The petals, sepals, and lip all have purple spots radiating from the center of the flower.

Brassocattleya Valencia Beauty
Brassocattleya Valencia Beauty (Brassavola nodosa x Cattleya Interglossa). Well-established seedlings in 2.25" pots. 6-12 months from blooming.This is a rare plant and I currently don't have any photos but a google image search will find a few. I did include a picture of each parent. This is a remake of Brassocattleya Valencia Beauty using 2 great, large-flowered parents. The flowers will be star-shaped with long, slender petals and sepals and a broad, flat lip. The sepals and petals will be very light purple-pink with the possibility of dark, random purple spotting. The lip will also be light purple-pink but with many more purple markings. There is the possibility these flowers will be fragrant.Care: Bright indirect light, cool-warm temps, regular watering and fertilizer spring-fall, and let dry between light waterings in the winter.
Bulbophyllum Daisy Chain
Bulbophyllum Daisy Chain (B makoyanum x cumingii). Well-established blooming size plant in a 3" net pot. These are easy, fast-growing orchids. Each spike holds 8-10 flowers in an umbel that looks like part of a daisy. The fringed lips are hinged and move around in the slightest breeze. The entire umbel is approx. 2" across. Blooms twice a year, summer and winter. Care: Intermediate-warm temps, shade-bright indirect light, regular year-round watering, and light feeding.
Well-established blooming size division in 3" clear net pot.Blooms randomly year round with single flowered inflorescence that bears a burnt orange flower with dark spots. Flowers are about the size of a quarter. Care: Cool to intermediate temps, and likes shade to indirect sun. Regular year-round watering with light feeding.
Cattleya Interglossa x Encyclia radiata
Well-established near-blooming size seedlings in 2.25" pots. If treated properly, these plants will bloom next year!Flower pictures are from both parent plants. We expect the plant size (compact), flower shape and size (1"), and a number of flowers per spike (5-10) to be similar to the E radiata parent while the color should be a little lighter and have spots (from the C Interglossa parent). These seedlings may even be fragrant. Remember, this is our best guess and everything will vary from seedling to seedling. Care: Bright indirect light, cool-warm temps, regular watering and fertilizer spring-fall and let dry between light waterings in the winter.
Cattleya Interglossa x Panarica brassavolae
Cattleya Interglossa x Panarica brassavolae. Well-established seedling size plant in 2.25" (1-2 years from blooming), and near blooming size plants 3.25" pot (may bloom this year, and definitely in 2023). We have been so happy with past crosses of interesting Catts and Panarica brassavolae that we did some more! Many of the past crosses have inherited the larger sepals and petals of the Catt and the showy lip of P brassavolae. Not only that, the colors have been very showy and many are fragrant. WIth this cross we are hoping for the addition of spots!Care: bright-very bright indirect light, intermediate-warm temps, regular watering and feeding spring-fall. A rest period in the winter is advisable with less water and no food.

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.

Regular watering and light feeding year-round, with a short dry period in between waterings.
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.
