Source of Pleione.

orchidnickNovember 10, 2010

Just enjoying the gorgeous bloom of Pleione precox, one of the fall bloomers. Have Pleione formosana and would like to lay on some more. Fraser's Thimble Farms has a good variety of them for sale but I always like to check out the competition.

I remember a good source of Pleiones originating in Canada, either Saskatchewan or Manitobe which I looked at many years ago. Does anyone know who they are, does anyone know a good source of Pleiones other than Fraser's?

If you buy from them please let me know by email. I have tried to buy plants from them over the past several years and it is like they are unavailable or will get back to me but do not. I do not like to recommend a place, even though I worked there once years ago, that does not follow up on potential sales.

Huntington Beach Orchids

They are listed as sold out, only 1 formosana. You may want to email to see if or when they will be available again.

Have no idea how current this is but the USA link is dead.

Looks current

Fraser's is Canadian.

I got my precox from Marnie Turkel, the formosana from SBOE. Fraser seems to have the best selection so I'll buy from them. I live in SBOE's area so have never bought from them other than direct walk-off.

According to Hana Farms' Facebook page, they seemed to have closed shop at the end of September this year. It's a pity because when I visited their site earlier this year they seemed to have had a reasonably sized list of Pleione available.

Nick,
I wonder whether you could contact the old owner of Hana Farms via the contact details on the link below to see if he's willing to sell Pleione privately.

Dunno if this is a good resource, but the Terrestrial Orchid Forum has a sub-forum for Pleiones.
