Fair Orchids

Carolyn,

My beautiful, talented, and far better, Better Half.

Carolyn is stuck in Maplewood with our 3 felines, watching some weird plants growing in the garden, while I am off playing with orchids.  For those active on Maplewood On Line, please meet Tabby.

ReFacebook

Long before the data mining issues, I decided  that the Facebook concept violates my sense of privacy.  Thus, I have shut down the profile I set up.

As of January 2021, I have a reasonable inventory of Cattleya, Cymbidium, Dendrobiums &  Vandaceous orchids.  I am bringing in a selection of Bulbophyllum & Paphiopedilum.  I have started production of 'Desert Rose' (Adenium obesum) and a few other non-orchids.  We also offer variegated forms of Agaves, Monstera, Cuban Oregano and several other genera.

I am well stocked on clear plastic pots, and azalea clay pots , net pots and Vanda baskets (6" & 8" octagonal), as well as Spaghnum and other potting mixes.   Free delivery to DCOS & NJOS meetings, and when speaking at other societies. 

REPOTTING Assistance:   I can assist with repotting of 1-3 plants on the Saturdays the greenhouse is open.  Prices depend upon size & condition of the plants, and whether I have to supply new pots or baskets.

3" & 4" pot, normally $3 each (+ pot, if needed)

6" & 8" pot, normally $5 each (+ pot, if needed)

For greater quantities, please make an appointment.

2021 Jan-Apr Special Offer:                                    Since we can't meet at shows this winter or spring, on those Saturdays coinciding with a cancelled or postponed show, special discounts are extended on in-greenhouse sales (10%, 15% or 20%, depending upon purchase total).  This offer is valid on
   January 16 & 23  (in lieu of NJOS & CAIOS)
   February 13          (in lieu of DCOS)
   March 20 & 27     (in lieu of NSOS & NHOS)
   April 3, 17 & 24    (CPOS, MHOS & STOS)

I was genetically imprinted on all things botanical in my fathers retailorchid/tropicals nursery.  I elected not to go into the family business full time, but have always maintained my interest and a large collection of 'this and that'.

I have grown orchids since 1968, specializing in 'slippers' (primarily Paphiopedilum), with Paph fairrieanum my favorite species, smaller Vandaceous plants (see Neofinetia falcata 'Maplewood' at right) and a sprinkling of Cattleyas (see RLC Maui's Golden Charm below), Aussie Dendrobiums & Cymbidiums.  

I do a little breeding in the first two genera, so I often have a variety of extra plants, seedlings and occasionally flasks for sale.  For more information, please go to the Orchids & Non-Orchid menus.

I have several orchid presentations available, suitable for both orchid societies and garden clubs.  For current speaking schedule, please click on Orchids, and then go to the Speaker page.
