Established in 1985, the orchidPhile specializes in cutting-edge Phalaenopsis breeding with a focus on the more unique, colorful and often fragrant compact growing waxy novelties and the amazingly floriferous multi-floral miniatures. As a result of our annual trips to Taiwan, we are able to obtain many Phalaenopsis species and hybrids that would otherwise never be available in the US.
In addition to Phalaenopsis, we also carry the miniature varieties of many other genera, including Cattleyas, Dendrobiums and Vandaceous, which grow and flower easily under the same low light and warm temperature conditions as our Phalaenopsis.
Although we don't maintain a retail business location at our nursery in CT, you can readily find us exhibiting and selling at many orchid shows and events in the Northeast. We always send out an informative Pre-Order List (complete with pictures, descriptions and prices) prior to many of our shows so please contact us at email@example.com if you’d like to be added to our e-mail list.
As summer winds down, we’re once again clearing bench space to make room for new arrivals. Due to the lateness of this list, our August Special prices on previously bloomed Phalaenopsis are valid for only two weeks, August 20th through September 3rd (this includes Pre-Orders placed by September 3rd for the September IPA meetings).
We’ve changed our Pre-Order List format slightly, grouping the Phalaenopsis by flower/plant type (Micro-Minis, Multi-floral Minis, Waxy Novelties & Standards) to make your browsing a little easier. Please let us know if this makes finding what you love a little easier.
September brings with it our 8th year of hosting two IPA Regional Meetings with our special guest speaker for this year, Mike Mims, a boutique hybridizer who’s been breeding some amazing new novelties.

Flora Peculia is dedicated to the promotion of Neofinetia falcata and Japanese orchids in Canada and around the world. The goal is to search out, bring for sale and grow species of Japanese orchids, including Neofinetia falcata, Sedirea japonica, Dendrobium moniliforme and Japanese Cymbidium goeringii. We have over 100 varieties, all grown and presented in the traditional Japanese way.
For the beginner reading this, Neofinetia falcata is a culture unto itself in Japan. This one species has over 2300 varieties listed as well as having an entire society devoted to its culture. In a nutshell, the species comes in a variety of forms including flower colour and shape, marginal, stripe and tiger variegation and bean leaf varieties that can be very super-mini. The bean leaf varieties come in fascinating shapes and growth patterns. Fukiran is appreciated for the plant and desirable by many collectors who appreciate the plant itself even if there are no blooms.
The name Fukiran is used by the Japanese for the varieties of Neofinetia falcata and literally means ‘rich noble orchid’. The cultivation has a long history originating in the Edo era of japan (400 years ago) It is my goal to help you to continue the rich tradition of Fukiran growing.. These plants are truly different from any other orchid as each has its own character even within the same variety.
