Special Offering #2 RARE Bottle Brush Orchid Dendrobium smilliae
(Photo shown courtesy of Lourens Grobler)
A well-known but still hard to find species known for its recognizable 'Bottle Brush' appearance when in bloom. Dendrobium smilliae (pronounced smile-ee-i) is native to select regions of Australia, into the Indonesian islands and up through Southeast Asia. Flowers will appear in clusters or balls of miniature pink and white blooms. Each tiny, tubular shaped bloom has a greenish colored lip which helps to create the unusual visual effect.
Plants prefer warm, humid conditions but still need moving air around their foliage. These are perfect for southern growers because a cooling period is not needed to promote flowers in the fall each year. Plants have even been seen flowering in other seasons (not winter) when grown well and can rebloom off the previous years canes.
During the warm, growing months do not allow plants to stay dry for long and fertilize every 3rd or 4th watering. Late in the summer feeding should be greatly reduced. By fall and winter, plants will require much less water but do not need to a completely dry winter rest. (Some leaf drop is normal from season or cultural changes but this species is not deciduous and complete leaf drop is indicative of an unhappy plant.)
We have beautiful blooming size plants growing in 4" pots that are expected to flower in the next six months or so. Supplies very limited so don't delay!

Special Offer #3 Vanda Manuel Torres *Blooming Size*
This new and limited offering is a standard sized grower has upright sprays of round, lilac-blue flowers with lighter blue tessellation. Once plants reach mature size, they will be about 16"-18" across leafspan, and more than 2 feet tall. Main flowering season will be the summer and fall but in warm climates these can bloom in any season.
Vandas like this one, are perfect for bright, warm conditions such as a greenhouse, shadehouse or outdoor growing area. Since they are grown in hanging baskets to allow room for the many aerial roots, they will need to be watered daily, and sometimes twice per day in warmer weather and outdoors. We suggest fertilizing approximately once per week with a balanced urea-free formula. (We do not suggest these for windowsill growers.)
We are offering Blooming Size plants in 4" Hanging Baskets that are expected to flower for the first time within six to twelve months. Due to the size of these plants, Actual Shipping costs will be charged.

Since we can not avoid the delays that occur within certain mail clients, we are now providing an alternate way to view our weekly emails, that will hopefully be faster for some recipients. Bookmark the Link Below for another way to view our Weekly Emails including Divisions Listings. Once on this page, you will see a link to the current/most recent Email Update.
Due to issues with Verizon spam filters that are beyond our control, we are not able to directly email our friends and customers who contact us using Verizon email addresses. You will continue to receive our weekly emails and we will receive your emails and orders, but we can not respond directly. Please make sure to leave an alternate form of contact (email, phone, or fax) that we can use to contact you regarding questions, or for order follow-up. We have worked diligently for several months towards a resolution but Verizon has not been willing to come to a solution on this issue. We are very sorry for any inconvenience and are continuing to work on finding a way around the problem.
Update June 27, 2017 We have learned that Verizon.net is advising their customers to move to a new AOL address as they are discontinuing service themselves. Even though your addresses will not change, our hope is that after emails have migrated to the new AOL servers we will have better luck responding to our friends and customers. In the meantime, we are still not able to email directly, though you will continue to receive our Email Updates. Thank you for your patience while we continue to address this issue.
