Orchids are one of the largest of plant families. As such, it should come to no surprise that within there are many genera - each offering a vast array or types, shapes, colors, traits, and cultural requirements.
Since not all are created equal, be sure to explore the specific needs of each before deciding.
Here are a few links to culture sheets specific to some types:
- Cattleya Alliance Culture
- Dracula & Masdevallia Culture (Pleurothallids)
- Dendrobiums (New Guinea Types)
- Growing Mounted Orchids
While Orchids have been my focus and passion for most of my existence, life evolves and circumstances change. At this point, most of my Orchid collection resides at Mason Hollow Nursery. While their commercial focus is primarily on outdoor perennials and garden plants, owners Chuck & Sue also maintain a top notch year-round greenhouse collection with a wide array of Orchid species.
In addition, a number of select plants have been donated and are now in the expert care of the publicly open The Life Sciences Greenhouse at Dartmouth.
