3/3/23- Flasks must be shipped in temperatures 32° or above. Please do not order if you are in a cold weather location. These are ready to be planted and can not be held.
Phalaenopsis cornu-cervi var. chattalade is the intense red form of this species and was only introduced to the orchid world about fifteen years ago. Flower stems are evergreen and sequential. Our strain of Phalaenopsis corningiana has exceptional color and remarkable fragrance. (We can always tell when one is flowering in the greenhouse!)
We were inspired to make this primary cross in the hopes of a new generation of bold red blooms with delicious fragrance. The already lush growth habit is expected to stay compact, and should do well in baskets with a sphagnum moss based media. Foliage is a medium green and shows some dark red and purple shading. Glossy blooms with a waxy substance will appear on evergreen stems during the late spring and summer months.
We are offering plastic flasks ready to be planted into community pots or cell packs now. Yield will be approximately 12-15 plants per bottle (some very large). These are shipped in glass bottles.

A Reminder: Orchids in this category are NOT in pots, or anywhere near flowering size. These are for commercial or hobby growers that have the time and patience to start babies from this earliest phase.
