4.5" - NOT In-Spike ($55.00)

A mericlone of one of the best Psychopsis ever produced with beautiful light green foliage covered in mahogany checks and spots. The flower spikes can get 18 inches to 2 feet tall and will produce a single large butterfly-like flower that lasts 3 weeks and will then fade while another bud is produced and will flower three weeks after the earlier flower. This can go on perpetually. We have had some flower spikes last up to 15 years! New spikes are added annually as new growths form at the base of the plant. If a flower spike should accidentally break, another spike will form just below the break at the nearest node. Grow in medium light and water as the mix becomes nearly dry. Fertilize with Green Jungle orchid food every time you water and flush with clear water once per month to prevent fertilizer salt buildup. This clone has received the highest award granted by the American Orchid Society, a First Class Certificate (FCC). This alone reflects how good this plant and its flowers really are.

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.
