4" Flowering size - NOT In-Spike ($35.00)

This interesting hybrid can flower twice per year but have the most flowers in the Fall/Winter. It usually starts flowering in late November to late December and flowers for 2-3 months. These will have several deep red to rose colored flowers on spikes that are 18 inches to 2 feet high.

Easy to grow and flower requiring medium light. Water as the potting mix approaches dryness. We pot these in a coco peat mix and as the mix dries out it turns a light tan in color. That is the signal to water.

These do very well as windowsill plants. The flower spikes emerge at the base of the pseudobulbs and first appear as a whitish callus on the side of the bulb then later pointy spikes begin to emerge. The 3 inch flowers are long lasting and there can be 10-30 flowers per spike when the plants are mature. 

The first picture is of the parent Phaiocalanthe Kryptonite and the second is of the Calanthe Grouville type. The third picture is to give you an idea as to the plants flower display. When listed in spike in October the spikes will be short at 1-4 inches long and will continue growing for a month or two before flowering. The colors will be in reds to rose and these are seed grown so expect some variability in color, size and shape.

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.
