    Talking Two...no, Three New Orchids!!

    Okay...I ordered two new plants, and because I was a return customer the grower threw in a bonus plant!

    So now I have 3 new plants and one is in bud!!! Check them out!

    Here is the bonus plant:

    Brassocattleya Sunny Delight 'Maj' x Cattleya lutiaca:


    These are the parent plants:




    Dendrobium unicum in bud!!:


    A photo and information from the grower I purchased from:


    "Dendrobium unicum is an unusual, beautiful and rewarding orchid to add to your collection. Miniature plants produce clumps of stems up to 5 or 6 inches long that erupt in spring with masses of bright orange flowers from side nodes, each bearing an unusual veined lip which points upward. Their fragrance is similar to freshly peeled crayola crayons! The long floral show can last up to several months. During late spring and summer, when new growths are forming, this orchid should receive plentiful water and fertilizer, with less once growths are mature until flowering. Water even less as spring is coming on to stimulate bud development, allowing the plants to go completely dry for several days at a time. If you follow this relatively simple routine, this orchid is easy to grow and will eventually become a spectacular specimen, while maintaining its small size."



    Lastly are some clippings from this same growers mature Dinema polybulbon. I requested them bareroot so I planted them up in coco fiber:


    Here are some pics and information from the grower:




    "This charming and rambunctious creeping miniature is frequently still included in Encyclia, but despite obvious relationship to both Encyclia and Epidendrum, it definitely falls into a category by itself! It is native to the mountain slopes on the Gulf Coast of Mexico, the Caribbean slopes of Guatemala and Nicaragua, as well as the higher mountains of both Jamaica and Cuba where it forms extensive mats on tree trunks in a humid and fairly rainy environment. If given good drainage in a basket or mount and watered frequently to daily, it will quickly form a large specimen and be covered in one inch bronzey gold and white flowers each winter, and occasionally at other times."

    --------

    If anyone is interested in where I purchased these plants PM me. They still have some of both the den. and dinema left.

    The first one was the bonus plant. Cute lil' thing. I am very excited to see (and smell) the dendrobium when it blooms.

    Thanks all!
