Hard-to-find Paph acmodontum species orchid
These can be very hard to find. Paph acmodontum is a somewhat rare species from the Philippines and another one of our favorites. One look at the picture of the flower tells you why -- wonderful pinks, stripes, spots, everything we love.
It's a compact, mottled-leaf warm-grower, perfect for those short on space.
These tend to be spring bloomers, and mature plants can have multiple flowers.
These are in 4 inch pots -- do not repot until the flowers come and go. Blooming size, but NOT in bud now.
These are easy to grow -- relatively low light, keep from drying out completely, fertilize weakly (3-3-3) every three or four weeks.
The first picture shows a typical flower; the second shot is the kind of plant you are purchasing. In bud now.
We have a bunch of these and we'll pick out a nice one for you.
And we include free growing instructions.
