Beautiful miniature native to Madagascar. White blooms to soft green overlays compliment this dusk to night time fragrant orchid species. Offered are bloom size potted plants in 3 inch mesh/air pots. This orchid species likes to dry between waterings and we have them potted in large bark and perlite. Provide bright light and intermediate to warm temperatures. Very hardy orchid species with a variable bloom season. Easily converts to mounted culture. Fred Hillerman stated "this is a 'must' for the grower with limited space. The entire vegetative portion of an old plant measures on 15 cm tall and wide, and a well-grown plant will produce 5-6 flowers. This is truly a delightful little species."

Angraecum leonis, Latin for lion-like describes the shape of the waxy white blooms produced on star-shaped plants with sickle shaped leaves. Blooms are night time fragrant. Very rewarding orchid species. Flower photo shows the quality of blooms produced from our cross. Grow moist and allow to nearly dry between waterings. Potted in mesh/air pots. According to Fred Hillerman, "this is really a handsome plant from the standpoint of foliage alone, but in full flower it is truly dazzling. It can be considered small to medium sized, and it certainly deserves a place in every orchid collection."

Wonderful looking plants that produce tons of gorgeous blooms. Blooms are wonderfully sweet smelling unlike most of the Bulbophyllum group. Native to China Hong Kong and Vietnam in evergreen and semi deciduous forest on limestone cliffs and mossy rocks. Found at elevation from 300 to 1300 meters as a small sized hot to cool growing orchid. Easy to grow. Blooms are best described as pale banana yellow with soft pink with raspberry red stripes and suffusions. Psuedobulbs can vary in color from dark orange to dark maroon. Really beautiful!

Soft golden icicles that are highlighted and striped in cherry red is a good description of the blooms on this Bulbophyllum orchid hybrid. The petals are covered in hairs. This orchid is super easy to grow and remains quite petite. The hybrid makes very good representation of both parents as you can see influences of each in this beautiful cross. A very good beginner Bulbophyllum.

Medium sized plants produce pendant to lateral flower stems that hang cylindrical shaped heads of many flowers. Individual blooms are yellow and bronze and the overall head of blooms produces the effect of orange-gold. Easy to grow orchid. Bulbophyllum careyanum is a species from the Himalayas to Vietnam. In the wild this species is a lithophyte that inhabits mossy rocks and cliff faces in evergreen forest at elevations of 200-2,000 metres. The inflorescence measures 20cm and bears many flowers that each measure 1cm long. We grow these in trays of water, but allow a dry period between waterings. Grow bright for winter bloomings. Can flower several times throughout the year. Makes a show stopping specimen quickly. Sources note that this orchid has a foul smell. We do not detect any foul odor, but a fragrance likened to Elmer's Glue .Bloom Size $30.00
Prolific Fall bloomer. Easy to grow potted or as a mount. Yellow to orange blooms spiral on lilac like inflorescences. Blooms typically last 30 days or more. Provide bright light and even moisture for best results. I have searched various resources and this plant was acquired with Bulb. lilacinum label. It has flower stems exactly like Bulb lilacinum, flower arrangement, and size. (Ken Karb collection) Since Bulb lilacinum occurs with an albescens color form, I am hoping that a botanist will chime in with the fact that Bulb lilacinum has an aurea color variant.
Potted large plants $35.00 or bare root $25.00
The masdevallia- like Bulbophyllum. Small size makes this Bulbophyllum a treasure for those growers with space concerns. Psuedobulbs are smallish and the length of space between psuedobulbs is short making a fantastic display of plant in a 4-5 inch pot. Bulb masevalliaceum is thought by some to be the only variety of Bulb blumei. Impressive blooms can be up to 4 inches in height. Red blooms with white margins. The cooler this plant is grown, the darker and deeper the red coloration. Very nice. Easily converts to mounted culture.Potted, bloom size $20.00
Bulbophyllum Stella Mizuta (B micranthum x B lobbii)

I really like the growth habit of this Indonesian native. The psuedobulbs are tightly spaced together and don't crawl out of the pot. The bloom stem is successive and opens several blooms per stem. Blooms are beautiful while open and during the process of opening. There is variation in color in blooms for this species but blooms are mostly golds to bronze to mahogany shades. Very attractive.
