Conservation. We actively support the conservation of species orchids by raising seedlings in flask, and offer exchange of tubes of sterile protocorm/seedling material and Seed exchange is also available. Enquire.

Sterile culture specialist. Specializing in the artificial propagation of orchid species for world wide distribution to the collector or the commercial grower.

Collectors: Plants and seedlings from flask or by division.

Jewel orchids in flaskSterile flasks of 12/14 seedlings and tubes of protocorm/seedling material can be sent by Airmail, Air Courier or EMS Air Express Post to anywhere in the world, mostly without red tape.

Small glass bottles hold 12/14 seedlings which are grown to pack tight inside the bottle, to prevent shake up of the seedlings and media in the airmail post, or air courier shipping.

This quantity is usually sufficient for most collectors, and flasks are shipped shortly before requiring deflasking. Flasks should be acclimatised in the growers conditions for awhile before deflasking.

Commercial Growers: Plants and seedlings.

Sterile flasks,commercial quantities of seedlings are supplied as multiple flasks.

We achieve some time savings in preparing a number of flasks from the one mother flask and can pass this saving on. Advise your requirements.

Tubes of protocorm/seedlings for collectors or nurseryman.

Sterile tubes for economic shipment worldwide

Small polycarbonate tubes containing small seedling protocorm material are also available. These tubes contain a minimum 25 to 30 seedlings/protocorm that require replating on receipt. Again, the contents of the tubes are grown to pack tight inside the tube to prevent shakeup. In many cases, the contents will yield much in excess of the 25 to 30 seedlings when replated. They can be sent 4 per padded bag, under 500 gms.

EXPORT; Enquire for current status: Airmail Post or EMS Airmail Express Post at cost. Air freight by International Air Express Courier is available for large orders, door to door delivery, with Customs clearance. The Courier parcel can be tracked on the internet.
