SVO 9845     NEW
Zga. Adelaide Meadows (Zga. Adelaide Meadows 'SVO' x Self)

This cross was originally made registered in 1993, that’s 20 years ago!  It made a huge impact on me and sparked my interest in Zygopetalum breeding. The flower color, shape, and plant habit are unique in orchids. I have always liked the ‘different’ kind of plants and this grex blew my mind!  The combination of green petals and sepals with a stunning purple (or even possibly red) lip is truly exceptional, and totally different. The parents of Adelaide Meadows are (Zygo. Titanic x Zga. Dynamo).  ‘SVO’ has been in my breeding collection for years; it is a great grower and reliably blooms twice per year.  As of 12/12/2022, these are in spike now!

Den. NEW HYBRID (Den. (Adastra x parishii) 'SVO' 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.

SVO 9537     NEW    
(Aslla. gigantea 'Nelspruit' x Aslla. gigantea 'Dark Warrior')

‘Nelspruit’ is also a new addition from Afri-Orchids noted breeding lines; it has an outstanding flower count, heavily branched inflorescences and flowers with nearly solid color, with just a little yellow showing through. Of special note is the dark color on the side of the lip, which is rare in Ansellias. Could ‘Nelspruit’ be the key to unlock and develop sold dark flower color? ‘Dark Warrior’ has massive flowers, wide segments and coalescing boldly colored spotting with a branching upright inflorescence. This pairing is targeting for nearly solid dark colored flowers, and lots of them!

Spathoglottis Cherry Blossom 'Pink Sakura'     NEW    
This is our first offering of a Spathoglottis. When I saw this blooming for the first time I was awestruck!!! It was the most amazing spike of pink flowers imaginable. The parents of this clone are (Spa. Menehune x Spa. eburnea).  These plants are easy to grow and flower, they like lots of water and light in the summer and dryer in the winter (when most of the leaves drop off).  The sturdy upright flower spikes bloom for months on end!  I believe we are the only nursery in the USA offering these.  Blooming size plants to flower this summer.
