Hi everyone,

This will be a number of posts to list everything. I'm sure I missed some plants that I'll add later.

I took a new job in February and have been considering significantly downsizing my collection ever since then as the new job has me much busier and has made my collection more of a chore than a pleasure. Last week, my mom fell out of her attic and broke some bones. She was super lucky and doesn't even need surgery to correct anything but since she is in her upper 60s it'll take her a while to heal and she is fairly incapacitated as she can't put any weight on one foot and also broke a bone in her shoulder. She is the main caregiver for my dad who has severe rheumatoid arthritis. So I will be moving in to assist them over the next few months--luckily I live close enough to them and them to my job that this is possible, but I do not think it is going to work to move my collection.

The silver lining in all of this is that my girlfriend and I have been wanting to change jobs and have a couple of months to travel as she has not seen much of the world and moving in with my parents for a few months will give us the means to do so. But that further cements my need to get rid of pretty much the entire collection.

If anyone is local and could pick them up or meet me halfway (I live in Dallas), I would gladly part with the whole collection for $1000 just to not have to deal with packaging so many plants for shipping. I’m putting them for sale on here first as I have loved this forum and would prefer the plants to go to people who will fully appreciate them. Depending on what the demand is here, I will probably end up just contacting my local orchid society and may end up just donating to them the majority of the plants.

I’m going to give it a couple of days to see if someone wants to meet up to take the whole collection as right now it is really more about the time than the money. If no one wants the whole collection, it’ll be first come first served. I will consider discounts for large quantities as I am mostly just trying to get rid of them before they become too neglected while I stay with my parents—and I have to be out of my current place by the end of August. I’m hoping to do minimum orders of $100 as between my job and helping my parents it is going to be a struggle to get them shipped out so I want to make sure it is worth my time—depending on demand, I may not hold firm to this idea. Prices do not include shipping, shipping to be charged at cost. All pictures in this thread of the current state of the plants; all links are links to previous bloomings.


Starting off with some of my favorites:

1. Paph delenatii Dunkle –Taking offers as it is a fantastic plant; Last blooming was tri-floral; here’s the thread of that blooming and a picture of it currently, one big new growth that should bloom this winter and two smaller growths coming out of the base instead of the previously bloomed growth:

one month old picture:

Today:

2. Paph Toni Semple—Taking offers; In BLOOM! Probably awardable; looks like it’ll finally be 6 flowers this year; This is probably only for local delivery if you want it in bloom as I let the spike go mostly natural and it is HUGE—otherwise, I can try to ship it but I anticipate $50 or more to ship and there would be no guarantees on the flowers surviving. It is a massive plant with an even larger spike; 2 PB, 1 in bloom, One huge NBS, one new growth; links to the last two bloomings:

3. Phrag Frank Smith--$200 this spring’s blooming had 3 huge flowers, this plant is huge and will cost a lot to ship; has two new growths that I am confidant would bloom next spring if it continued to grow in its current conditions; here’s its first blooming in spring of 2016 which only had 2 flowers and only resulted in 1 new growth—so the plant is improving with age:

plant today: picture is deceiving as it is a really large plant

4. Paph Lady Isabel ‘Crystelle’ x Booth’s Stone Lady ‘Crystelle’--$150; it just finished blooming with the spike in these pictures which results in it having 2 pb and one good sized new growth; flower measurments: 4.5DS, 1.1PW, 15.5NS horizontal, 18NS vertical; the pictures really don’t do the flowers justice

5. Paph philippenense--$100; big clump of a good philippenense; honestly, its hard to count how many new growths there are but there are a lot; here’s the last blooming I have good pictures of:

6. Paph Stone Addict “Yellow Hawk”--$100; 1PB, 1BS old growth that looks like it will never do anything, 2 BS growths; here is it’s last blooming, it sulked for a long time after that but the 2 BS growths are doing quite well now and should bloom anytime:

8. OZ Roth Red Baron x Wide Horizon--$75; 1st bloom at Orchid Zone was 6.8DS 2.0PW 27NS, its new growth is a little weak as it has been a little neglected hence the low price for a plant with a fantastic original blooming

Tough to say goodbye to such an excellent collection but that is life and it sounds like you are making the right decision.

You did a great job growing those stonei! I am sure you will find a good home for them and all the rest of these high quality plants.

I live in Dallas and would be interested in,

45, 53, 56, 59 and 60.

I would be interested in more, but I am also being careful about space until next spring when I might be making a move.

It would have to be a weekend, but if I can help with packing and shipping plants- happy to do so. I am fairly new to the forum here, but have been growing a very long time and have sold/shipped orchids at shows in the past- so I know the drill.

Best of luck to you.

PS- thinking on this, members of the forum- if some of you want to pitch in with me and buy this collection for $1,000 as originally offered, I am happy to take delivery here in Dallas provided I can ship plants out to people within two weeks (US shipping only.)

As long as there is non-overlapping interest in most of the stock, I will volunteer to take on that task. I will front $300 with the expectation I get the 5 plants listed in my reply post plus other things based on whatever other people want/don't want.

Fairly new here- but a grower for 35 years now and there are trade people on this forum who can vouch for me.

The mechanics would be like this- a few of us iron out 80%-90% of the split of plants (or all if we can do so quickly), I pay Denver $1,000 so he has his money and can move on, and then once he confirms he has his money from me (and publicly indicates as such in this thread), I retrieve the plants, the other buyers pay me and I ship. As noted above, I can provide references to vouch for me- and may request the same of others based on forum history, as needed.

thanks Justin, I'm sure I'll be back someday...maybe not quite as large of a collection unless I actually get a greenhouse...
