Orchidpeople Flasks

April 2015

 

We continue to receive shipments of flasks of our own crosses for sale. Each flask contains between 35-40 plants (except ones labled with OR prefex. These will have approx 30-35 plants). Most of these are crosses we consider warm tolerant based on our growing and testing on our benches at 250 above sea level in Hawaii on the Big Island. Of course you will have to try these crosses under your growing conditions to verify this. In most cases one or both parents definitely are warm tolerant and were tested and shown warm tolerant. We make no guarantee as to heat or warm tolerance. We provide as much information as possible for you to make an informed decision.

There are only a few each of these flasks so supply is limited.

Price: $45 per flask including shipping Fedex 2 day service US only.

Yai has a spectacular lip that comes through in crosses. We expect some nice pinks with interesting lips and good form

OPP309 parishii 'Emma Meninger' x Sleeping Bill Bailey 'Alba'
2 flasks left

The parishii 'Emma Menninger' when combined with a cool growing cymbidium often has warm tolerance in the seedlings. The large flower of the Sleeping Bill Bailey with its high flower count should make nice seedlings with some decent form.

These seedlings will be dark red and warm tolerant, and will bloom in a 4" pot. Another example of our Windowsill Cyms® line of pot plants. Seedlings should have a good flower count. This Valerie Absolonova produces 16 flowers on a spike, and the Happy Mimi the same number.
