  • Coelogyne speciosa - Orchids for the People

    Coelogyne speciosa

    Well-established blooming size plant in a 3.25" pot. Known as the  Beautiful Coelogyne, this species blooms sequentially with 1 to 3 flowers per spike. The musky scented flowers arise out of the center of a new pseudobulb growth and can bloom at any time of the year but most often in spring and summer. The flowers are about 6 cm in diameter. The lip is white with orange-brown or dark brown spots. The large side lobes of the lip are brown or red and curve up to form a tube that almost completely covers the spine. 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.

D steophyllum is a medium-small (6" tall) sized Dendrochilum with spikes that will carry 40-50 white flowers.

  • Dracula mantissa - Orchids for the People

    Dracula mantissa

    Please note that plant may not currently be in spike or flower when shipped.  This species produces very small (about the size of a dime) flowers that truly have a monkey face! Flowers late winter for us and a plant the size of the one in this listing can produce 20-40 flower spikes all at once. Not only that, each flower spike will produce 2-5 flowers in succession over a period of a couple of months. The short flower spikes emerge around the margin of the plant and the flowers face down. When seen from below it looks like a pack of mini monkeys staring down at you! Best if hung up in a basket but this is one of the few Dracula species that can be grown in a pot on a table.These plants are wonderful to own if you can give them what they want. Care: Minimum low temp of 46° 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.


  • Last stock! Dracula sodoroi - Orchids for the People

    Dracula sodiroi

    Well-established blooming size plant in a 2.25" pot. This is a unique and interesting Dracula. The first thing that stands out is the fact that it sends flower spikes up, not straight down, which is rare for this genus. The second thing you notice is the flower itself. The flower hangs down from the spike and the sepals are fused into a lantern-like shape. This, along with the bright orange color, draws a person in for a closer look. Then you notice the inside of the flower is completely covered in fuzzy hair! All in all, a neat addition to any cool to intermediate collection.Dracula sodiroi is also easier to grow than most Draculas because, since the flower spike grow upwards, you can grow it in a pot rather than a basket. This makes it easier to keep moist which, along with high humidity and good air movement, is essential for keeping this entire genus happy and healthy.


  • Dryadella hirtzii flower

    Dryadella hirtzii

    Large, well-established blooming size plant in a 3.25" pot. A plant this size will typically produce 20-30 flowers when it blooms. Very limited quantities!

  • Epidendrum coronatum x ellipticum - Orchids for the People

    Epidendrum coronatum x ellipticum

    Big, chunky, well-established, flowering-sized plants in 3.25" pots. This new cross is another great plant for beginning orchid growers! This is a compact reed stem-type epidendrum that produces nickel-sized, purplish-pink flowers. Reed stem Epidendrums are a wonderful addition to any orchid collection because of their ease of growing, their very long flowering cycle, and their massive variety of colors. Produces a flower spike at the top of new growths which continues to elongate and produce flowers sequentially from bottom to top over a period of months!We're not quite sure how tall these plants will get but they seem to be on the "compact" size for reed stem Epis. They have already flowered at less than 18" tall. Care: Very easy to grow. Cool-Warm temps,regular watering and light feeding spring-summer with a drier rest period and no food in the winter. Essentially the same as any other reed stem epi.


  • Epidendrum coronatum x Encyclia cordigera - Orchids for the People

    Epidendrum coronatum x Encyclia cordigera

    Well-established near-blooming size seedlings in 3.25" pots. This is an in-house hybrid and is available exclusively from Orchids For The People. These plants should bloom in 12-18 months if cared for properly.The parent flowers are pictured, as we have not seen blooms yet with this cross of 2 interesting species. Epi coronatum is a medium-sized plant with large (for an Epi, 1.5+") creamy white, fragrant flowers. Enc cordigera is a medium-sized plant with 3" dark purple fragrant flowers. We have no idea what the flowers will look like but are hoping for rather large, fragrant flowers on a fairly compact plant.The plant looks like a reed stem epidendrum but with very fleshy, almost succulent leaves. Growing conditions: intermediate-warm temps, bright indirect light, regular watering, and light feeding throughout the growing season (spring-fall) with a slightly dry rest period in the winter. 


  • Last stock! Epidendrum neoporpax - Orchids for the People

    Epidendrum neoporpax

    Epidendrum neoporpax. Well-established blooming size plant in a 3" net pot.  We love this plant! It mats into a specimen in a short time. Flowers several times a year and we call it the "baboon butt" flower for obvious (to me :) reasons. This is a great orchid for vivariums and small growing spaces! Care: Easy to grow in moderately bright to partial shade conditions. Like to be mounted either vertically or horizontally. Moderate water all year.


  • Epidendrum parkinsonianum - Orchids for the People

    Epidendrum parkinsonianum

    Well-established, near-blooming seedlings in 4" net pots. The newest leaf on these plants is 8-10" long. These plants should bloom next year if they are taken care of. This plant produces beautiful long (18+"), 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. The mother plant was collected in Nicaragua in 1971 (it still has the original tag!) and is a prolific flowerer!This plant needs to be hung in a basket or mounted because of its pendant growth habit. The buyer will need to provide a hanger or a perch where the pendant leaves can hang down.Care: Prefers cool-intermediate temps and bright indirect light. Regular watering and light feeding year-round, with a short dry period in between waterings.


  • Masdevallia (herradurae x nicaraguae) - Orchids for the People

    Well-established blooming size plant in a 2" pot. Miniature Masdevallia! A new mini hybrid from Orchids For The People. Fast-growing and floriferous. We deflasked these plants in the fall of 2021 and already they are producing 4-8 flowers! The flowers fit on a quarter but are tall and big enough not to go unnoticed. This plant would make a great addition to any mini, cool growing, or pleurothallid collection! It would also look great mounted or in a vivarium. Care: Cool-intermediate temps, shade- indirect light, regular watering and light feeding year round.
