This is a small growing, summer flowering Cymbidium that is native to Vietnam where it grows in cool forests at around 1500m. We find this species very straight forward and reliable with the advantage of flowering relatively quickly from seed. The plant shown in the photograph flowered three years out of flask and is now […]
This is a small sized Masdevallia native to Peru that grows in cool forest around 2300m altitude where it grows as an epiphyte of lithophyte. It has thick rounded leaves and the flowers are produced in profusion on stems much shorter than the leaves. We find that growing the species mounted or in a small basket […]
This is a warm growing epiphyte from the Celebes Islands in Indonesia. It produces long lived flower spikes that flower more or less successively over a long period. The flowers are thick waxy. We find that this species grows well in a basket of course bark with frequent watering throughout the year.
This unusual Coelogyne species has a wonderful habit of flowering for several years from each flower spike, a habit it shares with a small number of other species from section prolifera. The result is a specimen plant with flowers simultaneously produced from several year’s growths. After flowering the flower spikes take a ten month rest […]
This dramatic Gongora is named after Choco state in North eastern Colombia where it found as an epiphyte in Mangrove swamp. It is therefore a warm growing species and at home in our Warm Asia section (although growing nowhere near Asia) Our clone has a really dramatic eye on the lip and the flowers are large […]
