We all have them: really nice things that are no longer our favorites, or for a small business - single items that are difficult to list. I have way too many selected plants; I absorbed plants from several closing nurseries over the last 18 months, and now, I have to decide which things are going to be useful to me for what I am doing now, and which need to make room for the many seedlings in the flask rack.

I need bench space, so I need to start selling these plants. These are mostly one-of-a-kind selections. Many of these plants are of breeding quality. Most are exhibition quality. These are too good to be marketed as pot plants, and we would really like to see them go to people that will appreciate them.

There will be lots of one-of-a-kind selected Phalaenopsis; there will be mericlones and stem props; there will be divisions of choice non-Phalaenopsis items. Flasks and comm-pots could show up here. Items from Breckinridge, Lenette, Orchids Orinda, and other places, are likely be available. There will be occasional species and mounted plants.

Plants marked RESERVED are in the process of being purchased; however, sometimes people do not follow through with payment, so I leave them on the site until they are paid for. If you want something that is reserved, please ask. You could get lucky.

Ordering: please e-mail me with the item number(s), for availability. I will get back to you with status and specific ordering information.

For the larger plants, a great deal of shipping expense can be saved by shipping bare-root. You should remove the flower spikes, if any, upon arrival and pot the plant.

If you are planning to breed with something as soon as possible, or concerned about flower longevity, I suggest in-pot shipping.
