Phalaenopsis Creme de Menthe 'Newberry'
Our exclusive mericlone has frosty white blooms tipped with mint green accents and barely there pink blush in the center of each flower. Beautiful and long lasting, this is a perfect addition to any collection. This was handpicked from one of Lenette Greenhouses last crosses. A great beginner choice! We have beautiful healthy plants in 5" pots that are showing young flower spikes. Buds will emerge this winter for a long-lasting show!
For those wanting to try something new and interesting, these Ladyslipper orchids are the way to go. Culture requirements are very similar to Phalaenopsis, but they like more moisture at their 'feet'. Hybrids bred from Maudiae type parentage stay compact and won't outgrow your space. Plants have two-tone foliage and each stem holds a beautiful bloom for months.
Our growers will choose from an assortment of different colors and crosses growing in 4" pots, all in bud stage and ready to start blooming. (Plants will vary in color and type, photo for example only)
The possibilities of color and shape in this group of orchids is endless, with new varieties being created every year. Oncidiums have thin leaves that prefer intermediate temperatures and bright sunny spots like sun rooms or windows. Flower normally last for over a month under average home conditions.
We will send a pretty plant growing in a 4" pot in spike or bud/bloom stage, ready to flower and enjoy! (Plants will vary in color and type, photo for example only)
