Sarcochilus falcatus Large Flowered form
This is the large flowered form of this great and hard-to-come-by Australian species. The blooms can be nearly 1.5 inches across, which is more than double the size of many Sarcochilus blossoms! The foliage remains compact, growing in the same nearly succulent, mono-podial (fan-like)fashion as is typical to members of the genus. This species is also sought after for its delicate, sweet scent, which is a very unusual characteristic for members of the Sarcochilus genus.
Divisions from the original plant, established onto small slabs of cork bark.

Sarcochilus fitzgeraldii 'Little Sheila'
Sarcochilus fitzgeraldii 'Little Sheila'
Vibrant rose speckles decorate the centers of these lovely, bright white flowers.

Since the succulent-like genus is a lithophyte (rock grower) in its native Australia, the plants offered here well established in a granite potting medium. It grows great either outside with Cymbidiums, or indoors in intermediate conditions. . Temperature Tolerant. April blooming. Species from Australia.

Sarcochilus hartmannii var. alba
A true treasure from Australia! This compact, miniature species occurs along the East coast of the continent growing on rocks and occasionally trees. This distribution makes it very suitable for growing outdoors in sub-tropical locations such as coastal California, or in the intermediate-temperature greenhouse. This color form is particularly eye catching due to its nearly pure-white, crystalline flowers and prolific flowering habit.

Sarcochilus Patricia June
Sarcochilus Patricia June
One of our most free-flowering and super compact Sarcochillus hybrids! These seedlings are characterized by their excellent red markings: some are nearly solid red (see example photo) like parent Sarc. Hot Santa, while others have shown spots over pale lavender (not pictured) as with their other parent, Sarc. Sweet Melody. The foliage is very compact, growing to an overall height of about 4 to 5 inches, making them superb for miniature orchid collections, or as vibrant companion plant to outdoor Cymbidiums or indoor Cattleyas.

Established seedlings in 3 inch pots. Seedlings are unique, with some individual variation in precise color, size, or markings so no two are identical. Such is the fun of flowering seedlings - enjoy the surprise!
Temperature Tolerant. March blooming.
