Up for Bid: Division of Polystachya subdiphylla with 2 lead growths. Flower close-up and the blooming plant are this clone. The auction plant is shown in the image with the tape measure and is growing in a 2.5” plastic pot. The flowers are about 1” across, have a wonderful sweet fragrance and are long-lasting. The Species: The mature plants are about 8″ tall and has very compact in its growth. The inforescence has several flowers that are non-resupinate (upside down). It grows in Tanzania in mountain forest at 6600 ft elevation. It is listed as a cool to cold growing species, but it has done very well for me in intermediate conditions. Culture: I grow it potted potted in fine bark mix and grow it in the 50 to 56 degree minimum night with year round moisture and 1/4 strength fertilizer. It can also be grown mounted. Note about delayed shipping: If you want to delay shipping, DO NOT pay the ebay invoice. Contact me directly about payment. To see more orchids from mostlyspecies (Marni Turkel) click: More Orchids. Ask Before Bidding if you have any questions about this plant. Your plant will be packed very carefully, but I cannot guarantee that flowers or spikes will be intact on receipt. I want my customers to be happy, so if there is a problem contact me immediately, I will do my very best to see that it is corrected. Shipping & Handling Charge: Packing and shipping for the first plant or flask is US $13.45; additional plants or flasks in the same shipment are only $1.50 each. The shipping/handling may seem high but it takes time and material to pack these plants with the great care they deserve to insure their safe arrival. I usually ship on Monday/Tuesday or Saturday after receipt of payment. The plants need to be dry to ship safely and that can take several days. I most often ship USPS, but sometimes I use FedEx. Your item will be shipped with a tracking number so you can see its progress. Insurance for $50 is included in Priority Mail. If you want your item held, DO NOT pay the eBay invoice. Ebay has changed its policy and I am penalized if I don’t ship your purchase within 5 days of payment. You can pay me through PayPal and I can hold your shipment until you are ready. I can hold your item for a few days if you wish to combine shipment with other items; please let me know that you want to wait. Shipping to Hawaii requires that you have an import permit and pay the Phyto certificate/handling charges ($20). Weather: I live in a mild climate area, so I am able to ship most any time. Shipping with a heat pack is extra work for me and I won’t recommend it unless I think you really need it. IF your daytime temperatures are below 40F a heat pack may or may not be advisable and we should discuss. If your daytime temperatures are below 32F I don’t usually recommend shipping even with a heat pack. If your package will be sitting outside in a mailbox or on a porch after delivery that needs to be taken in to consideration. If you have concerns about the weather in your area, I am happy to work with you to be sure that the order arrives safely by timing of shipment and/or heat pack ($3.00 if paid with plant invoice or $4.00 if paid separately) or by using USPS Express or FedEx Next Day or Second Day Air shipping for an adjusted price. It is the buyer’s responsibility to check the weather in the delivery area and let me know if special precautions are necessary. Payment: Expected within 3 days via PayPal. If you want to delay shipping, please contact me to let me know. California Residents: 9% sales tax will be added to your invoice. [11/17/19] See description _gsrx_vers_859 (GS 7.0.21 (859))
