Orchids

  • Sold By: Carlton Carnivores

    An easy to grow, even weedy terrestrial to semi-epiphytic orchid in the right conditions; this plant develops clambering, branching stems that can grow 2-3 feet tall, with short solid leaves sprouting alternately up the stem. Long roots grow out the sides to anchor the plant on moist substrate, and once established each main branch will send up a tall stalk topped with potentially dozens of brilliant yellow and crimson red blooms, which give it the common name of "fire star orchid."

    Available plants are rooted cuttings developing new growth points, between 4-8" in length.

    Plants are shipped bare-root wrapped in a moist paper towel, via USPS Priority mail; I typically ship Monday-Wednesday to avoid weekend hold-overs. US shipping only. Many plants are grown in high humidity conditions and may require acclimation, unless otherwise noted. If you are expecting weather that may be detrimental to the plants if shipped, please message me upon making your order! Shipping cost includes heat pack or cold pack/insulation as conditions require. If there are issues with the plants upon arrival, please contact me within 48 hours of receipt.

    A perfect beginner's orchid with unusual flowers. Plants grow from underground tubers, producing a pair to three tapered green leaves up to almost a foot in length. From the center grows a tall, lanky stem that may hold up to a dozen or more blooms that look somewhat like a person wearing a hood, with two narrow bottom and two side lobes on the lower lip, and a pair of triangular projections on either side of the "hood" covering the reproductive organs. The whole bloom is washed in white to pale lavender and edged in deeper purple. In winter, the plants die back, resting in drier conditions as tubers.

    Available plants are young seedlings with leaves up to 4" long.

    A large epiphytic orchid with thick fleshy stems that form folded ovular leaves near their tips and can last for years at a time each; older stems may produce new leaves each season or instead form plantlets on their ends early in the year. A dry, cool winter season may trigger bloom production, stalks rising from within the leaf rosettes to produce large pink and white blooms.

    Available plants are young plantlets approx. 3 inches long with new roots, as seen in image.

    Looking for an orchid to try as a first-time grower? Or for something at least a little different from the common garden center moth orchids? This is a great option to try, and even one that, unlike most orchids, can be sprouted from seeds without special conditions. All you need is some moist, airy soil of some sort (sphagnum and orchid bark works well) and time. Plants tend to produce one or two long, lance-shaped leaves that hug the soil, dying back to the tubers for a cool, dry winter period, and in summer send up stalks up to 2 feet or more tall that sport from one to over a dozen delicate white and lavender flowers that easily self-pollinate. Packets contain likely 150-200+ fine, dust-like seeds. Seeds are shipped in padded envelopes to avoid damage in transit, via USPS mail (First Class). US shipping only. As seeds can take time and sometimes special treatments in order to germinate properly, returns cannot be accepted and refunds are not available upon receipt of the seed packets. If a package is lost in transit, please contact as soon as possible.
