Item specifics

Plant Category:

Orchid species



Up for Bid: This is a flask of an unbloomed and unnamed hybrid of a small statured Lycaste species from Panama (Lycaste powellii) with 4" fragrant flowers crossed with the medium sized hybrid Lycaste Autumn Glow. The Lycaste Autumn Glow held the capsule. The flask you are bidding on is shown in the images with the tape and is the flask you will received. It is growing in a 24 oz plastic container. The plant images are of the parents. I am breeding lycaste hybrids for compact size and mass blooming and this is one I am quite optimistic about. I would expect the first of these to start blooming in two years. Both of the species are semi-deciduous so all of the brown leaves you see in the flask are normal and are from previous years growths.[917]

Contents: Approximately 25 seedlings. 

Culture: I grow both parent plants with 55 degree minimum night temperatures in moderate to moderately bright light. I water the Lyc. powellii a bit less in the winter, but don't give it a hard dry rest. Fertilize regularly during growth. I grow them potted in a fine bark mix or a terrestrial mix.

About this flask: I take great pride in producing flasks with strong seedlings that are ready to come out of flask and have a very good survival rate. The survival of these seedlings is dependent on the conditions where they will be growing and the skill of the grower. If you are new to deflasking seedlings (or just want to see how I do it) you may want to take a look at my  Deflasking Suggestions . 

Shipping seedlings: After a bit of experience shipping flasks, I have decided that deflasking before shipping is probably the safest for the plants. I will shake off most of the medium, treat them with beneficial microbes and fungicide and put them in a zip bag. If your prefer to have them shipped in flask you must let me know that. Whether they are in flask or bagged, you should be prepared to pot them up shortly after receiving.

If you have any questions about this flask, ASK BEFORE BIDDING. Your flask will be packed very carefully, but once it leaves my hands it is out of my control. I want my customers to be happy, so if there is a problem contact me immediately, I will do my very best to see that it is corrected.

Shipping & Handling Charge: Packing and shipping for the first plant or flask is US $12.95; additional plants or flasks in the same shipment are only $1.50 each. The shipping/handling may seem high but it takes time and material to pack these plants with the great care they deserve to insure their safe arrival. I usually ship on Monday/Tuesday or Saturday after receipt of payment. Plants need to be dry to ship safely and that can take several days. I most often ship USPS, but sometimes I use FedEx. 

Shipping to Hawaii requires that you have an import permit and pay the Phyto certificate/handling charges ($20).

International customers / Before you bid: There is a minimum order of $200 before I can do an overseas shipment of flasks. Depending on the size of the order, the Phytosanitary certificate will be from $100 to freeI have the ability to get international phytosanitary certificates for my flasks to legally ship overseas. I usually ship Express Mail International or International Priority Mail. Price will vary depending on the country, choice of service and weight of package. Customer needs to provide an import permit issued by your government if it is required. I do not ship to Belgium.

Weather: I live in a mild climate area, so I am able to ship most any time. Shipping with a heat pack is extra work for me and I won't recommend it unless I think you really need it. IF your daytime temperatures are below 40F a heat pack may or may not be advisable and we should discuss. If your daytime temperatures are below 32F I don't usually recommend shipping even with a heat pack. If your package will be sitting outside in a mailbox or on a porch after delivery that needs to be taken in to consideration.

If you have concerns about the weather in your area, I am happy to work with you to be sure that the order arrives safely by timing of shipment and/or heat pack ($3.00 if paid with plant invoice or $4.00 if paid separately), cold pack ($1.50) or by using FedEx Next Day or Second Day Air shipping for an adjusted price. Please understand that delays in shipping are beyond my control and I cannot guarantee safe arrival.

Payment: Expected within 3 days, PayPal preferred.

California Residents: 8% sales tax will be added to your invoice. [4/6/14]
