Orchidpeople Flasks

Feb 2016

 

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.

OPP424 Sleeping Nymph 'Glacier' x Olymilum 'White Elf'
1 flask left

We paired the standard alba Sleeping Nymph with Olymilum for intermediate flowers that bloom more than once a year. Floribundum is the parent of Olymilum and when used with standards we tend to get more flowers and more frequent flowering. Look for green to white intermediates that bloom late spring and early winter
