Prepare for a gorgeous, must-have crimson hue! This crimson hue is absolutely stunning – you won't be able to resist it!
What you will eventually see flowering will be a blending of the two parents. In some cases we are able to provide you with a photo of the progeny, however, please bear in mind that variations in colour, etc. are expected with seedling crosses
Grow them warm to cool temperature, shaded conditions, 60%-65% humidity all year around, reduce water during cold season.
The photo that shows on each available variant is indicative of the size plant that you will receive. Size B plants can be expected to reach flowering size in 2-2.5 years; Size B+ plants in 18-24months; Size C plants in 6-18 months (depending on the flowering season and time of purchase). Please check carefully when selecting options to avoid “size surprise”.
Please note that the size of the grow pot may vary.
Sarcochilus originate from the eastern coastline of Australia from the northern parts of Queensland through to the southern parts of Victoria as well as the northern coastline of Tasmania. As such, they can be grown relatively easily in most parts of New Zealand. They are mostly epiphytic or lithophytic, meaning they either grow on trees or rocks. The more common Sarcochilus species and hybrids available here in NZ prefer a cooler, more shaded environment. Certain plants (particularly those with cascading flowers) look great in hanging baskets. You can even mount them onto trees.
