Some news: first, we'll be revising the whole site shortly. Second, flasks of 20 25+ seedling of Vanda barnesii 'Type', CHM/AOS are ready, $100 each, twelve flasks only. Grows intermediate to cool, bright light, likes to be in a pot and can make up to six spikes at a time of 7 to 9 flowers each. This is a "wow" species described in 2012, these are seedlings of the type specimen of the species.
The usual slew of links remains below; we're moving toward continuing to do some wholesale, of things we have a lot of, and some interstate retail, of collector's items of which there may be five or six, or in some cases just one spare division.
Feel free to peruse the links below to see "collector's items," "samples." "Odont types," "ladyslippers" and so on, some of these are still available but we'll be updating this site over the next few months to reflect better what we'll be putting on offer and toward what we'll be moving for the future. Cheers!

IN THIS ECONOMY, the obvious question is whether orchids are a necessity. The answer is first, yes, the beauty that uplifts you is essential - a ten minute vacation spent gazing upon a flower.... Secondly, the answer is a question: "Do you not deserve a moment of rare grace every day - and if not you, then who on earth does?"
Every day, as we ship out orchids, the question is, "Will this flower help make a world more like the one we'd like to live in?" When the answer is an obvious "yes", we send that plant out.
This orchid was awarded the Award of Merit by the American Orchid Society this year. Seedlings are in the lab.
