    I'm willing to entertain offers or trades for these. If trades are offered, I'd prefer small species. I'll ship to the US only, weather permitting. USPS Priority is preferred. Buyer pays actual shipping.

    GONE Dendrobium uniflorum $20 - I got this a few years ago at Fantasy Orchids in Louisville, CO. I didn't realize it was a seedling at the time, as I didn't know how large mature plants were supposed to be. It flowered for me last summer, but I didn't have my camera equipment to photograph it. I tell you this to vouch for the ID. It has 16 canes, 4 of them are leafless, and the longest one is ~16". Plant pic

    GONE Ceratostylis retisquama $15 - A sweet little species that makes an impressive specimen plant. It's easy to grow. I don't have a flower pic, but you can do a search and find a couple. Plant pic

    Bulbophyllum orectopetalum $20 - Beautiful little lobbii type. This is the lighter colored clone that's floating around. Easy grower given high RH. Plant pic & some species pics

    Bulbophyllum blumei $20 and up - I'll have to get a division from the mother plant. This clone has crimson red flowers; they're almost blood red. It's really a great clone. Fast growing and free flowering. I'd guess a $20 division would have 6-8 bulbs minimum. I don't have a fancy flower pic, but here's one taken with my PS camera. Flower pic

    Bulbophyllum compressum $30 - Extremely uncommon in the US. I don't know very many people that have this species. It's odd among bulbos in that the bulbs are, well, compressed. Or so it seems. They're kind of flattened looking. If you search for "compressum", you'll find Clawd's flower photos. Plant pic

    Bulbophyllum flavescens $35 - Fast growing, clumping species. It's in a plastic pot now, but it would be happier mounted. I have a couple clones of this species, and they're a spectacular sight when they bloom every fall. some species pics & actual plant pic

    GONE - Encyclia garciana $20 - I neglected this plant for a few years because I completely forgot about it (it was hiding on the floor behind a bucket). I found it about 6 months ago and moved it to more favorable conditions. It's a little rough, but it's starting to grow very well. Plant pic

    Bulbophyllum ambrosia $25 - I acquired this one at the Petite Plaisance closing sale a few years ago. I'm not sure what I was thinking as it's a distinctive species, and I already have a couple of clones of it... anyhow, it flowered well for me a couple of months ago, and sure enough: it smells like honey. The bulbs on this species turn a beautiful dark red/mahogany given enough light. Plant pic & some species pics

    GONE - Stelis tridentata $25 - A specimen plant that I've had forever. It's not really a good "fit" with my current collection, so I'm divesting. Good intermediate, medium shade loving plant. Plant pic

    GONE - Maxillaria rufescens $20 - A clumpy maxillaria with 2.5-3" pleasantly fragrant yellow flowers. It blooms on and off throughout the year. It's in a 4" pot, but it really would prefer something larger. Easy grower and bloomer. Plant pic

    Bulbophyllum werneri $40 - A very strange bulbo. Kind of a "collector's bulbo", if you will. I'd like to take a small division of the plant before I send it out; a couple of backbulbs or something. Here are some species pics & here is the plant pic

    GONE - Pleurothallis tripterantha $35 - Specimen plant. I would conservatively guess this plant has 100 growths on it. Like the stelis above, it's not a good "fit" with my current collection. The plant pic is taken from above. I don't have flower pics, so you'll have to run over to Jay's site or something to see some.

    Maxillaria marginata $30 - I love this species, but the plant isn't really something I can handle easily in my small greenhouse. I guess I just like bulbos more than this one. :) Plant pic. Do a search here to find some flower pics. It's really a rewarding species.

    Jumellea arachnanthe $20 - An angraecoid. Any description I put here wouldn't be sufficient for Floozo, so I'll just leave it at "sweet species". Plant pic

    GONE - Maxillaria arbuscula $20 - Awesome grower, great foliage, easy to bloom... a pretty sweet plant. I have two, and I only need one. Plant pic

    Pholidota uraiensis $15

    Pholidota chinensis 'riopelle' $8

    Paraphalaenopsis serpentilingue $25 - I have a few of these available. They were deflasked a few years ago and have 6" leaves. Still babies, but they're starting to take off.

    I'm interested in the Encyclia and the Maxillaria ruf. What now? Can I assume both
    plants are intermediate/warm growers?

    Could you please describe the Jumellea in more detail?

    Especially things like the fragrance and the seductive curves of the flower parts. And the way the leaves feel. TIA

    List updated. I'll take any reasonable offer on anything.

    I also added the paraphalaenopsis serpentilingue seedlings.
