large specimen size plant - NOT In-Spike ($1,000.00)

This listing is for a very large specimen of Suzanne Decker. The largest growth measures over 36" long. It has been growing in semi-hydro culture in a medium of combined growstone and hydroton. We have noticed Suzanne Decker in particular does very well in this potting medium, more so than most Phragmipedium hybrids.


With the size of this plant, on a good spike it is possible to branch out and hold more than one flower at a time (as showin in the picture). The flowers open as the first photo shows, very flat. After about 3 days there is some recurve in the petals and it looks more like what you see on the photo of the branching spike.


The flower quality with Suzanne Decker is very consistent. So consistent, in fact, that we believe it is possible many of them could be what we call 'flask clones', where the tissue proliferates in the flask and you end up having many plants with the same genetic material.


Actual plant for sale is pictured in the three lower photos - the first two pictures represent its flowering potential. The plant is in a 2.5 gallon pot.

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.
