Floralia Orquideas: Orchids from Brazil

Mar. 10, 2016: Back in January, our local orchid buying group got wind of Floralia Orquideas in Brazil and their 2016 price list was a veritable wishlist for a lot of us (THANKS DOT!). Our group’s order came in and we’re so excited to get some very interesting plants we’ve never seen/heard about before. The plants came in bare-root and Larry potted/mounted up the plants immediately.
