Pot Size

2" pot strong seedling - NOT In-Spike ($25.00)

This is the rare blue form of the species which is normally purple. The flower color is white with a lip that has two indigo blue eyes. These plants are often known as the hand orchid in Thailand, as when the growths are mature and start losing leaves the psedobulbs look like human fingers. The beautiful inch to inch and a half flowers have white markings with blue eyes in the lip. The fragrance is great with a raspberries and cream scent. The plants offered are strong seedlings that could have their first flowers in 2018 or 2019. Grow in medium light and water/fertilize well in the summer. Cut back on fertilizer at the end of August and by Mid November start using only clear water. Once the leaves start yellowing and fall off, keep the plant decidely drier at the roots by only watering every 2-3 weeks or so. Some slight shriveling of the canes is normal. If they shrivel too much, increase the frequency of watering and they will start to plump back up. Sometime in late winter or early spring you will see buds starting to form on the sides of the finger like pseudobulbs. When this happens just use clear water and allow the mix to approach dryness between waterings. After flowering, when new growth begins at the base of the plant and roots begin to form, one can begin fertilizing the plant through the growing season.

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.

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.
