Dendrobium spectabile. These normally bloom in January but this year
they were still blooming until May.
Laturia Dendrobiums are one of several
sub-families of Dendrobiums. The originate in New Guinea and the South
They bloom from Winter into spring. Most will flower two or more times a
year and the flowers are long lasting each time. We will have large
varities of species and hybrids in bloom from January to April. We usually
get a second blooming in August. They are very unique yet most are no more
expensive than common Dendrobiums.
Den. spectabile is the king of Laturia species. It will grow to three feet
in height and produce a spectacular display of flowers. After all it is
named spectacular in latin. It only blooms once a year but the flowers
We have a full TUTORIAL on this outstanding plant.
Den. Roy Tukunaga can have spots as well as pure white petals.
And the list goes on. We will have almost all of the laturia shown in

The butterfly orchids of the Psychopsis
family are truly outstanding. They will flower continuously on the same stem for 5-10 years with each flowering making the stem a little longer. We have had stems up to
five feet long. While the stems look delicate they will withstand 40 mph winds without breaking.
We like the hybrid Psy. Mariposa the best
for the abla form. We like both Mariposa and the Kahilii form (it is the parent of
Mariposa) for the normal coloration. All Psychopsis look basically the same. The alba form appears more
often than the parent Psychopsis papilio alba. Do not ask why a yellow
flower is called white (alba) but that has been the varietal name. The alba
form has been much more expensive as it was less common selling for $60 a
single stem. We now offer them at the same price. The Mariposa we offer start at $35 for a single stem and
double triple or even quadruple stems are coming to the market.
Gram. scriptum var. citreon are
July to September bloomers. The flowers last for
use 6-8 weeks and if kept out of the worst of the summer heat can stay attractive longer.
We have 4 inch pots available as well as full size flowering size.
These are a late summer bloomer for us and the first flower spikes are
beginning to form. It can take 6-8 weeks for the flowers to fully form
martae, Gram. scriptum and a cross of scriptum x martae flower in the
spring to early summer.
Gram. elegans is outstanding in bloom. The flower spikes can be seven
feet long with well over a hundred flowers per stem.
Try the chocolate orchid, Onc. Sharry Baby.
It smells exactly like chocolate.
We have been shipping large multiple spike plants for the last few months and now the same plants are blooming again.
They mostly have two spikes but can produce 3-5. These plants are all blooming multiple times a year.
We have a new crop flowering. We have added divisions at a low
price for those with a little patience. But only a little patience is
needed as most divisions flower the first year.
