I am back from the two orchid shows on my schedule for this Spring. My friend and host, Markus Ehrlich received two AOS awards on his nicely grown Paphiopedilums... an AM on his Paph Exicitingly Wood and an HCC on a yet to be named fairrieanum hybrid. Congratulations Markus!

New Earth Orchids will be open on our regularly scheduled hours--Wednesday through Friday: Noon to 4:30 and Saturday: 10 AM to 2 PM starting on 5 April.

In May, Cyndi and I will be going to Sedona for short vacation. During that time, New Earth Orchids will be closed from the 10th through the 13th of May. I will reopen on the 17th.
A Short Note About New Earth Orchids
Ron, with over 45 years experience, has grown and bred orchids all over the US.  In 1990, New England Orchid Company was formeded as a part-time business to support the extensive breeding program that was starting up.  In 2003, he and his wife Cynthia moved the business to New Jersey and changed the name to New Earth Orchids.  And now, they have moved the business to Santa Fe and launched it as a full service orchid nursery to bring the best in orchids to Santa Fe and New Mexico.
In addition to ron’s activities in the orchid business, he has been very active in the local orchid societies wherever he lived.   This includes serving as an officer, chairing orchid shows, and becoming an American Orchid Society Accredited Judge.  Before leaving New Jersey, Ron founded the Jersey Highlands Orchid Society.  He now serves on the American Orchid Society Membership Committee. Ron travels to shows across the US and is in demand as a speaker to orchid societies from Florida to California.

Check our Facebook page for the current speaking and show schedule for information about when and to where Ron will be traveling.

    
Our Monthly Featured Plant: Zygopetalum Advance Australia 'HOF' AM/AOS
Zygopetalums such as this one produce exotic flowers with a marvelous day time fragrance. They are easy to grow and will often bloom twice a year. They need moderate light and plenty of water. We pot them in New Zealand sphagnum moss and water them every 4 to 5 days...sometimes in the drier hotter part of Summer every 3rd day. Minimum night temperatures can go as low as 55º F.

We have these available in bud, in 4 inch pots for $35.00. For those too far away to come to the greenhouse, shipping is $8.00/plant.
