This little guy is in flower right now. While I'd like to take credit for acquiring this little guy, it was actually my dad who picked this plant up from a local farmers' market. You can see that the plant is a little taller than a penny, and its flowers are very small, maybe about a quarter of an inch across. This plant is growing in a 2" pot with a coarse bark mix in very shady conditions (it's growing in-between some larger Phalaenopsis plants. Overall, I'd consider this to be a pretty useless plant, but if we can somehow get it to breed and keep its bright, green color, there may be some use for it in the future.
(Miltoniopsis Edmonds x Hamburg)
These pansy orchids have always fascinated me. We can't successfully grow them down in Kahului (way too hot for these plants down here), but luckily my grandfather lives in upcountry Maui where these plants seem to really enjoy the cold weather. This particular Miltoniopsis Rouge came as a mericlone from the Akatsuka's on the Big Island. We've got a bunch of these and overall, they're pretty easy growing and start to bloom around this time of year. While I haven't scientifically proven this, I've noticed that the colder the weather during the bud development, the darker and bolder the red color on these Miltoniopsis. We've brought plants in bud down to Kahului to flower, and they lose much of the red coloring, and the temperature change causes major stress on the plants. If you live in a cold area, this is one orchid to try!
We are a small, backyard nursery that has been growing orchids for over 15 years. We currently grow the following types of orchids:
These days, we are less active commercially, however, we have not lost our passion for orchids! On the following pages, you will find photos and information about some of the plants that we grow. If any catch your eye, please let us know. We'll be happy to let you know if we have one for sale (sometimes we only have a single plant -- but we can help you find out who might have one for sale).
