3.25" 2-3 growths - NOT In-Spike ($60.00)

A beautiful species native to Borneo, Sumatra, Sulawesi and pennisular Malaysia, this species has gone through a variety of names and a lot of confusion. Many lump these all in the name of bullenianum but we grew bullenianum many years ago when they were fresh imports and the true bullenianum has purple on the undersides of the leaves. The foliage is beautiful and the tall graceful flower spikes are erect and bear a singular 3-4 inch flower colored with deep pink petals and green, tan and mahogany segments. Easy to grow and reliable in flowering, this smallish plant is a delight to look at even when it is not in flower. The flowers last about 2 months.

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.
