Live orchid plants or orchids in pots bring an enlightenment garden into your home, give you a sense of peace and help the air quality around you. Plant decor can set a native tone for any room. Tropical plants add that extra splash of color, fragrance, and natural charm to an indoor tropical garden.
🌺 Lc. Melody Fair 'Carol' AM/AOS has flowers that are large with good shape and substance, all white with a red lip! They make the perfect plant lover gift!
There are about 17 species of Brassavola; they are native to the American tropics. Provide the plant with good light and intermediate temperatures (65º to 80ºF during the day with a 10ºF drop at night) for best flowering. It may not flower, however, if kept at temperatures below about 55ºF. Water regularly, allowing the potting medium to dry slightly between waterings. Keep plants on the dry side when temperatures are cool. Allow at least a 2 week dry period in the winter when the plant is not actively growing to help mature growths and induce flowering.

How Long I Store Your Information
Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions.

If I am required to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. Your rights are as follows:

Not always, as with all living things, there are variations in blooms that occur in orchids grown from seeds. So even orchids in the same variety of a hybrid may all produce different colors, petal shapes, bloom sizes, and/or patterns. Orchids are bred and rebred until a perfect flower is achieved, but the only way to pass that exact flower along is through cloning and dividing. Unless the listing notes that the photo of the flower is the actual plant for sale or the plant is a clone, the bloom you receive may be slightly or totally different from our best guess (the photo used to give you an idea).
We can not be responsible for handling the package by the shipping company, including but not limited to any loss, delay, or damage to the package. If you have an issue related to shipping, please file a claim with the shipping company and include the tracking number provided.
We cannot guarantee that any spikes, buds, or blooms on live orchids will remain intact during shipping, but we will pack as carefully as possible. We don't advertise orchids as in spike, bud, or bloom - that doesn't mean we don't ship them in that stage. It just means the price you are paying is for what the plant is worth, not what the occasional flowers are worth. The plants continue to grow while they are waiting to be purchased and an orchid that starts without a spike may well be in bud or bloom before it is packaged and shipped to you. If you need an orchid in a certain flower stage, please ask before you purchase.
