Fresh from Hawaii, we bring you these beautiful Dendrobium 'Spanish Eyes' orchid plants. These very young orchid plants are about 1-2 years away from blooming. They have some growing to do before they will be mature enough to flower. These are perfect houseplant orchids. Find a sunny window for them, mist them every couple of days, and water fully once a week. That's it! Dendrobiums (or "cane orchids") love to hang and grow out of their pots. Their roots will eventually grow out of their pots and hang mid-air. This is normal and very neat to see! These are truly unique creatures.
We will select the best looking plant from our available stock when you order. We will try to find ones that have started producing new canes, but this is not always possible. Regardless, your plant should start growing quickly after planting, assuming it is being grown in the right environment :-) And remember, these are not in flower, spike, or bloom. These *should* bloom in 1-2 years. Patience is needed for these plants, but the reward is well worth the wait!
There are a couple options for purchase here. All prices listed include the shipping costs!:
Option 1 - You can buy one (1) plant, bare root. Bare root means there will not be any dirt or a pot included with the plant. This is ideal for growers who have their own pots and/or orchid dirt already on hand. An example of a bare root orchid is shown in the 5th photo.
Option 2 - You can buy one (1) "kit" that will include one (1) bare root orchid, one (1) 2" clay pot, and enough LECA orchid clay beads to plant your orchid in the provided 2" clay pot. This is ideal for a new orchid grower or for someone who does not have orchid supplies on hand. The orchid will grow well in the 2" pot for 4-6 months after which time it *should* be ready for a larger pot (likely a 4" pot).
Both options will also include a care sheet for the plant that you will be receiving.
The first 3 photos that show blooming orchids are taken from a plant that we have that is the same variety as these orchid plants that are for sale. Of course, as you can see, color varies from photo to photo due to lighting and different blooming years, but these orchids will produce sprays of white and purple flowers similar to what you see in the photos that we took of our plant.
The 4th photo of the 3 potted orchid plants are examples of what we currently have in stock. Plants are all about the same size. We have them currently in 2" pots and plants are about 6" tall each (including their roots/pot). As these are example plants, yours may vary from what you see in the photo. If you would like to see the ones we have available at the time of purchase, let us know and we can snap a photo!
The 5th photo shows an example of what you would receive if you purchase "Option 1." This is one (1) bare root orchid (no dirt or pot).
The 6th and final photo shows an example of the additional items that you would receive if you purchase "Option 2." In addition to one (1) bare root orchid, you will receive a potting kit that includes one (1) 2" clay pot as well as some LECA orchid clay beads (enough to pot your plant in the 2" clay pot provided). LECA is an awesome medium to use for planting because it never decomposes, the clay beads retain moisture and therefore provide natural humidity to the plant, and they do not keep the roots soaking wet.
We work really hard to make sure that your plant is well packed and protected so that it arrives in tact to your home. We do insure packages as an added precaution, in the unlikely event that your package is harmed in transit.
