4"-4.5" pots flowering size - NOT In-Spike ($55.00)

This is the grandiflora type with bigger, broader foliage and superior flowers. Flowers are fragrant at night. These are really superior plants with wider leaves and larger flowers. Beautiful specimens! Can be grown on slabs. This particular species is perhaps one of the easiest of all orchids to grow and is perfect for the beginner. Grow in good strong light and allow the potting mix to become just dry between waterings. The flower spikes emerge first inside a sheath at the base of the inside of the leaf where it joins the supporting stem. The flowers with this particular cross have been large, in the 4-5" range. They call this the 'lady of the night' orchid for a good reason as the flowers have a wonderful alluring scent. Typically the flowers last 2-3 months.

 

This cross was made with superior parents, some of these will be 3N and 4N.

IN SPIKE: 
An orchid plant may arrive in bud, in bloom or in various stages of in-spike development. A plant in-spike can take anywhere from 1 week to 2 months before flowers begin to open. We are one of the few nurseries to ship orchids in spike or bloom. Most of the time our carefully wrapped orchids in-spike or in-bloom arrive in good condition. However, due to conditions beyond our control, we cannot guarantee that all flower spikes, flowers, or buds will arrive in perfect condition.

NOT IN-SPIKE:
An orchid will arrive while it is not currently spiking or blooming due to being either before or after its bloom season. Check the "Bloom Season" information on the product page to see when the plant is expected to spike and flower. Many orchid lovers and hobbyists prefer plants that are not in-spike in order to watch the first stages of the spike emerging all the way through to the reward of the bloom! If you are sending a plant as a gift, you generally want to send the plant in-spike unless the gift receiver would prefer otherwise.
