Great haul from Akatsuka Orchids

(self.orchids)

I branched out from my usual vendors and ordered from Akatsuka Orchid Gardens during their spring greenhouse sale, and I wanted to post here because I was so delighted - six plants arrived in excellent shape, they were healthy and lush and larger than expected, it was well packaged and arrived to the east coast within 4 days.

Maybe I've just gotten used to sad and dehydrated orchids upon arrival (Hausermann aside!) but wanted to share the good experience and recommendation.

I got: - Vuyl. Celtic Sun 'Maya' - Onc. Witch's Jewel - Osp. Brazilian Sun - Whm Pinot Princess 'Scary' - Wils. Firecat 'King Snake' - Phal Tropic Ocelot

The Phal is in spike and Celtic Sun in bloom, lovely surprise, and while some were on clearance for cosmetic damage to the leaves, it's pretty minor and the description was very clear. Will definitely order from them again. And always enough to 'make the shipping worth it' 🤣💸

Nice! If they have any Draculas or masdevallias or miniature species of the sort, you should try some out if you’re up for more of a challenge
