The selection at this time is limited but we do have more hybrids on the way with the objective of being able to supply various different hybrids year round.

This is the title of an article we were asked to write for Orchids magazine, the AOS publication. When or whether it will ever be published we have no idea. But we get the “I can’t grow Masds” comment all the time. Here’s our answer to that “No you can’t grow every Masdevallia, but in all probability you can grow some of them.

Hopefully this will help you enjoy these wonderful, free blooming, colorful orchids. Click here to be linked to the full article. (more…)
We have recorded a 45 minute DVD. It is called “The Story of little bellatulum” and focuses on the difficulty of breeding and growing red complex paphs, also known as the bulldog paph.

You are welcome to use any of the photographs on the website. Credit is not necessary; we do not want your customers coming to us! We only use photographs we have taken of our flowers. We do not “borrow” photographs. There will be times when we do not have a photograph on the website, but we are working on it. If you need one that is not on the website, check with us. It may simply be an oversight. Please understand all our plants are seed crosses and seed crosses do show variations in the flowers, sometimes a lot. When we are using a photo of a flower that received an award, we will add that notation.
