Pot Size

3.25" Flowering Size - In-Spike ($55.00)

This delightful lady slipper from Sumatra and Java can flower for a year to 18 months on the same spike! Each flower lasts about 3-4 weeks and is replaced by a new one. The plant will often begin a new spike from a new growth before the old spike finishes blooming, making this nearly a perpetual bloomer.

When a new growth begins its flower spike and the older growth is still flowering, it is best to cut the older flower spike off to put more energy into the plant for better growth and flowering. Low to medium light is best, water as the potting mix approaches dryness. You can always use the plant label to help figure out when the mix is dry. If you pull the label out and feel moisture on the end, then don't water. If you can't figure it out or it feels dry, then water. Feed every other week with our Green Jungle Orchid Food.

 

Our currently available plants are in low spike and should be blooming within the next two months.

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.
