A very rare species from Borneo. This species likes Phalaenopsis conditions to Cattleya conditions for light levels. Water as the plant approaches dryness. These are all specimen plants and if you are interested in a certain size we can send you a photo of the actual plant you would recieve. The leaf spans are measured from the center of the plant to the leaf tip on each side of the plant and then added together.


We have artificially propagated this rare species from Borneo. This species is unusual because it has two different shaped and colored flowers on the same inflorescence. The 'Farmington' clone is more compact than the usual forms of Dimorphorchis lowii and more cold tolerant. The upper flowers are yellow with red spots, and the lower flowers are more reddish in color (see close up picture). These plants have been grown here from seed since 1998 and are all blooming size. Limited availability.

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.
