Happy Holidays from Taylor Orchids!

Feb. 27, 2016 [update]: Here’s the beautiful flowers of the Phal. Brother Pixie King. The lip on this thing is striking!

Phal. Brother Pixie King

Dec. 12, 2015: It’s been unusually “warm” this December and this particular Saturday was literally t-shirt and shorts weather. What better way to spend such a great day than to hang out with Ron and Robin at Taylor Orchids. It was shocking to see that the special Ron “backroom” is gone and how he’s downsized significantly. The monster Renanopsis Lena Rowold “tree” that used to be in the back has been cut down. Definitely a true end of an era. There are still a lot of special gems to be found in the mix, though, and we feel blessed to have been able to take home some classics.

Yup, we finally got an Elizabeth Ann ‘Buckleberry’! This is a picture from Oct. 2014 when we discovered one of Ron’s Elizabeth Ann ‘Buckleberry’s blooming under his benches through the grates.

Bulb. grandiflorum
Such an unusual flower that looks more like a carnivorous plant than an orchid.

(picture from Internet) This is not Phal. Brother Pixie King (it’s a picture of Phal. Brother Pirate King x Sand Pebbles) but the reason why we took this plant home is because Larry kept on asking Ron about spotted Cattleyas. Ron shoved this plant at Larry saying this should be a spotted Phal.
