I have purchased a significant quantity of Orchid Inn's remaining stocks over the past few months- mostly flasks, compots and seedlings- but also quite a number of NBS to BS multifloral plants. It remains to be seen if I am going to become an ongoing vendor as a retirement career- but at the very least I am going to be offering on this forum and at shows much of this fine inventory in the coming 12-18 months. Sam has been very generous with me at this time, as he has always been in the 20 years we have done business, and I hope that I can meet his high standards as I test drive expanding my horizons beyond growing out seedlings to wholesale to other retailers or provide to private clients.
For the moment I have one parcel to offer- and at the best price I will ever offer for such plants- resulting from what I will call an over-enthusiastic purchase of NBS to BS seedlings. There is room for all of them- but one less tray of plants will leave a more ideal amount of growing room for the rest.
The offer is for 10 NBS to BS Paph. rothschildianum and Paph. PEOY for $500, including Fed-Ex Home Delivery within the United States.
This represents a significant discount from full retail, plus these are all very big plants as the photos below demonstrate- in at least 2 cases with larger leaf spans than the largest size previously offered on the site.
The parcel includes one each of the following six rothschildianum sib crosses,
Paph. rothschildianum x sib ('Red Horizon' x 'X-Hot' SMM/AOGA)
Paph. rothschildianum x sib ('Gigantic' FCC/AOS x 'Sam's Delight')
Paph. rothschildianum x sib ('Fine Five' x 'Atticus' AM/AOS, B/WOC)
Paph. rothschildianum x sib ('New Gigantic' x 'X-Hot' SSM/JOGA)
Paph. rothschildianum x sib ('Giant Wings' GM/WOC x '2nd Dimension')
Paph. rothschildianum x sib ('Giant Wings' GM/WOC x 'Canadian Club 'GM/JOGA)
The parcel also includes 4 plants of Paph. Prince Edward of York (sanderianum ‘Lady in Red’ x rothschildianum ‘New Horizon’ FCC/AOS)
As you might imagine- my home is a bit of a jungle right now. So here are a couple of representative photos from which your plants will be selected- taken right after unpacking last week. The first shot is roth and the second shot is PEOY. Note- these are being selected from a population of about 100 plants, so while these are a good representation, the actual plants you receive will not all come from the 3 trays photographed (though several will.)
