Here are three orchids, one of which is in bloom, another is about to bloom and the third is probably a couple years from blooming.
The first is a Phalaenopsis pallens var. denticulata, which is a small-growing, very tolerant species. This one is ~8" from leaf tip to leaf tip and it has three flower buds, a keiki and other spikes that are still deciding what to do. It's been a reliable bloomer for a number of years. Here is a photo of what you can expect when it blooms (not my photo): http://www.orchidspecies.com/phalpallens.htm and here are a couple photos of the plant you are bidding on:
The 2nd plant is an Ascocentrum ampullaceum var. moulmeinense, which is another small-growing and pretty fool-proof species. This one is ~7" from leaf tip to leaf tip and is coming into peak bloom now. It usually blooms for a few weeks and has been a reliable bloomer for several years. Here are a couple photos of the plant you're bidding on:
The third orchid is an Anacheilium cochleatum, which used to be known as Encyclia cochleata. This is the cockleshell orchid that looks like an octopus. It's pretty small, but it has really plumped up since I moved it to a different basket last fall and I think it's going to have a big year. Here's what you can expect when it blooms (not my photo) - http://www.orchidspecies.com/anacochleata.htm and here's a photo of the plant you're bidding on:
Let the bidding start at $20 and I'll pay for priority mail shipping if they sell for at least $50.
These are easy to care for here in CT - they spend the cold months hanging in a south window and the warm months hanging in a tree. They go out once the low temperatures are staying above the mid 40s and come back in when temperatures start dropping below that in the fall. I water them 2-3 times per week when they're outdoors, less when it rains, and I water them once per week in the winter. I almost never fertilize them. I think they would do even better for a more motivated owner.
