Stenorrhynchos speciosum is native to Mexico and Central America. It is a very easy to grow species with huge fat roots that like a terrestrial potting mix like peat moss or New Zealand sphagnum moss. The large leaves remind one of hostas and are colored in bluish green with white spotting. The flower spikes emerge in winter and can flower from the end of December to sometime in February. This species is very tolerant of a wide range of temperatures and conditions and can grow into magnificent specimens with several growths. The flower spikes are from 12 to 18 inches tall and covered in many light red tubular flowers with a white tubular lip. The plants we offer are divisions from our private collection and are very nice large plants. Several are specimen size. These are beautiful, well grown plants! The flowers last for several 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.
