TD434 Tolumnia sylvestris `Natural World' CCE/AOS
Hispanola and Cuba..
No Image Available

 This is a division of our CCE/AOS plant which received Best In Show and the Governor's Trophy at our big County Fair Show a few years back. It had 1400 flowers at that time!. The pink color is pale, the value of this cultivar is really in the floriferousness and ease of culture. T. sylvestris carries more flowers per spike than other similar species. These low-elevation species grow dry and bright in bushes, grass, and on dead trees and cactus. For this reason we grow them hanging in empty net pots. The CCE plant hadn’t been touched n 15 years and was basically growing in mid-air.

TOF3274 Vanda testacea `Bryon' x self
India - Indo China.
Vanda testacea `Bryon' x self

 Uncommon small vanda species with many attractive 3/4" yellow or orangey flowers with purple lips. You and I are not going to grind up our orchids, but it is interesting to read about this: "Vanda testacea (Lindl.) Rchb.f. known as Banda or Rasna, an alkaloid rich epiphytic species of Vandaceous orchids, is widely known for its medicinal properties. Almost all plant parts (roots, leaves, flowers) in powder form or as an extract are used as herbal medicines to cure rheumatism, bronchitis, nervous disorders, piles and inflammations as well as a potential anti-cancerous drug." (A Highly Medicinal Value Epiphytic Orchid of India, Sebastinraj, et al, 2014) It is faced with extensive collections and habitat destruction pressures.

TOF1650 Zootrophion endressianus.
Costa Rica.
Zootrophion endressianus.

 High-class zootrophion has large flowers in "showy" displays. As you know, zootrophion flowers are not meant to open, rather the pollinating insect enters and exits through a small opening. These flowers are quite large for the plant size, pale yellow, speckled with red.
