    Stanhopea embreei ('Lumberjack' x self). Well established, near blooming size (2021 or 2022) seedlings in 4" octagonal baskets. Please note: The plant pictured is a generic Stanhopea seedling picture. Stanhopeas all look the same at this stage! We have several other Stanhopea seedlings available.

    These unusual flowers  (we call them 'flying aliens') have very heavy substance and great confirmation. Even though the flowers feel like they're made out of plastic, they only last 7-10 days. They make up for the short-lived flowers by producing new spikes throughout the blooming season (spring, summer, fall). Each spike holds 4 flowers. Each flower is about 4" wide and 6-7" tall. Strong, unusual fragrance (vanilla, mint, mothballs) that I find pleasant, especially from a distance. These plants are very fast growers and can weigh 100+ lbs in 10 years.

    Care: Intermediate-warm temps, partial shade, and plenty of water year-round.
