Welcome to the Pine Ridge Orchids section on Paphiopedilums. We are striving to produce the best quality Paphs specializing in the multi-floral types. We are a commercial nursery offering wholesale pricing to everyone. It is nearly impossible to offer a list of all our multi-floral Paphs that are available.
The plants are very large with multiple growths per pot, again all priced at wholesale levels depending upon size and variety. Spike initiation and blooming occurs throughout the year.
SPECIAL CLEARANCE PRICING
$20.00 each - Paphiopedilum - our choice but you can chose the plants in person (13 cm round and 3.25" square potted). Hybrids such as Paph. Barbara Glancy, Michael Koopowitz, and Prince Edward of York excluded from this SPECIAL OFFER. We are trying to make room for our expanding Catasetinae collection.
-- BREEDING COLLECTION FOR SALE --
I have recently repotted all my Phalaenopsis and Paphiopedilum BREEDING PLANTS and priced them individually for sale. The prices for the plants are very reasonable - generally $25 - $35 for the Phalaenopsis and $25 - $150 for the Paphiopedilums - depending upon what the plant is.
I do not have a list of what I have on the 3 benches (not enough time in the day to do this). Everyone is invited to visit the nursery and look at the plants to see if there is anything of interest to you. I have collected the best of the best as the plants bloomed out and have used these plants in making over 2,000 hybrid seed pods that I have sent to the labs. The vast majority of the Phalaenopsis had never been sent to the labs for cloning because they were more important to me holding seed pods.
Manuel G. Caluff, world fern expert and Director of the Santiago de Cuba Fern Garden, has been so kind in permitting us to post his PowerPoint presentation "Cuban Orchids" to our website.
Manuel Caluff started the Fern Garden of Santiago de Cuba and remains the Director. The Garden stores over 1,000 plant species including 360 licophytes and ferns, 300 orchid species, and a 9,500 plant herbarium (BSC). The Fern Garden is the most important fern collection in Latin America.
Manuel Caluff has described 24 new fern species and has written over 60 publications in Cuban and foreign scientific journals including 2 books - "The Magic of My Garden" in Cuba and "Conservation Of The Licophytes And Ferns In The Antilles" in the Dominican Republic.
NOTE -- this PowerPoint presentation is very large (Manuel Caluff's original format which I do not want to resize because of artist's rights) - it may take several minutes to load on your computer. PLEASE be patient - it is worth it. It may be quicker to click on the link and save to your desktop and then open with PowerPoint.
To run as a slide show, when PowerPoint opens, look at the top buttons and you should have one that says View As Slideshow.
Thank You --- Terry and Barbara Glancy
