Den. lindleyi (aggregatum) (Den. aggregatum 'SVO Gold Coins' x Den. aggregatum 'Midas Touch')

These are so floriferous, and well-grown plants produce many inflorescences with 20-25 flowers each in bright yellow resembling golden coins.  For best plant culture ,it's important to  understand and apply a seasonal wet/dry pattern. Water almost every day from April through November, then reduce watering to about once every two weeks in December through May. With proper care, these will quickly grow into specimens with thousands of flowers in March and April.

Den. NEW HYBRID (Den. (Adastra x parishii) 'Tropical Berry' x self)

When I saw this in bloom, I was wowed by its 'cute factor'. The fragrant purple flowers smell like sweet raspberries, and the blooms develop on short stems along the prior year's bulbs. For best plant culture, understanding and applying a seasonal wet/dry pattern will give the best results. These plants do well on mounts, as they want to be drier from December-March. For us, watering about every 2 weeks during this period works best, and then from April-November we water almost every day. These small-growing plants also flower in May and June, a time when not much else is in bloom.

Bulb. Manchind (Bulb. mandibulare 'D&B'  CBR/AOS x Bulb. echinolabium 'Eastern Star' HCC/AOS)

It has been a long while since we made a Bulbophyllum but when we first made this one it was a real standout!  The grex was named by Bill Thoms, Manchind is pronounced ‘Man-Kind’.  Bulb. mandibulare is rare in cultivation and it’s not often used as a parent; its large flowers and attractive bronze-colored blooms with a copper overlay are impressive. Bulb. echinolabium has large flowers with an amazing vertical length of often over 12 inches; the flowers are the color of honey with maroon veins. The idea for crossing these was inspired because Bulb. mandibulare has its petals jutting forward while Bulb. echinolabium the petals are recurved back. The idea for crossing these 2 was inspired by the thought that the opposing petal orientation would counteract each other resulting in a flat and horizontal petal stance and it did! Bulb. Manchind has resulted in 6 Awards of Merit from the American Orchid Society. 

Both of the parents have a tight pseudobulb spacing and do really well in pots. The large flowers are beautifully shaped and bloom successively. The ideal growing temperatures is about 65 to 80 degrees and light levels of 1500-2000 fc.

Vandoglossum NEW HYBRID (V. coerulescens x Holc. subulifolium)

Vanda coerulescens is known for its small blue flowers that are powerfully fragrant.  Holcoglossum subulifolium has large branching spikes of white flowers.  With this hybrid we are expecting many-flowered spikes carrying white flowers with blue lips.  Many will be nicely fragrant from the V. coerulescens parent.  Both species are cold tolerant, so this hybrid will take temperatures down to 40 deg F and perhaps lower.

Vandoglossum NEW HYBRID (V. denisoniana x Holc. amesianum)

V. denisoniana blooms with full-shaped butter yellow flowers that are very fragrant in the evening hours.   This wonderful species is paired here with the lovely Holcoglossum amesianum.  H. amesianum blooms with pale pink flowers that have the most exquisite floral fragrance.  We hope this combination will produce light yellow flowers with a powerful intoxicating fragrance!

Ascda. Rumrill (Ascda. Rumrill 'DO Giant' x self)         NEW

This is an easy-to-grow miniature Angraecoid species with large white flowers that are fragrant at night.  These should be allowed to dry between waterings and are potted in a coarse bark mix that drains quickly.  This is a great species for a bright windowsill or under lights.  These seedlings are already blooming size!
