New Earth Orchids is New Mexico's finest orchid nursery providing plants for beginners to experienced growers.
Ron also provides and maintains beautiful orchid arrangements for short term rentals or long term leases.
Need a great gift for friends or family in Santa Fe and nearby communities? We offer orchid arrangements ranging from a single double stemmed Phalaenopsis in one of our "Made in Santa Fe" ceramic pots to large bowls full of orchids to give to your cherished family and friends.
For our hobbyist friends, we have a fine selection of very desirable species. Check the interesting Dendrobium species and Angraecoids that we carry.
For those who grow in small spaces, we have a variety of miniature orchids from Harella retrocalla to micro miniature Cattleyas.
We also have seedlings from Ron's breeding plus selected crosses from other breeders across the country.
We offer mother plant divisions of select plants from our unique stock of Cattleyas. These are plants that have not been cloned. These are highly desirable and will make your collection unique. Many are awarded or are of award quality. Most are also tetraploid and will be useful for breeding.
We have a busy travel schedule for speaking events and shows. Greenhouse closures for these events and holidays are posted here.
Please note our normal greenhouse hours are:
Wednesday to Friday Noon to 4:30
Saturday 10 AM to 2 PM
Wow, we returned to Santa Fe on 14 May after a great week in New England visiting family. Next year we will go in October so I will be able to handle your Mother's Day gift orders. I returned to the greenhouse today (15 May) to problems in the greenhouse...oh well...all can be fixed easily.
The Oklahoma Orchid show was a great success. I especially need to thank Gerry Holland and Robert Hoover for opening their home to me. Thank you so much for your hospitality!!
My travels in June will be to the Arkansas Orchid Society in Little Rock. As a result the greenhouse will be closed Saturday, June 15th.
Our annual "Beginning of Summer Sale" will start on June 19th and continue through June 29th. "Watch This Space" for more details!
One other big event coming soon...we will be celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary by attending the Carlos Santana concert in Denver, CO on July 3rd! We will toast our 15 years together at Death & Company on the 4th of July!. The greenhouse will be closed from Wednesday July 3rd through Saturday July 6th. We will reopen on Wednesday July 10th.
That's enough for now...more to come later.
I have purchased 16 orchids from Ron and they all are very healthy with no pests or disease. The orchids are shipped to me in a very careful manner and they arrive safely. I would highly recommend NEO to anyone!!! Oh and his selection is amazing!

First purchase from Ron arrived today and I couldn't be more pleased! All very healthy, packaged and shipped without problems. Very responsive to questions as well.

We visited orchid exhibits in Kew Gardens in London last week. I didn't see anything that I couldn't see over a few visits to New Earth Orchids in Santa Fe. Ron's orchids are gorgeous! We have a couple dozen at home, now. Ron offers good, practical advice on how to care for them, and almost all of ours have re-bloomed.

How do I get my Phalaenopsis orchid to rebloom?
If the plant is good health with firm leaves, there are two reasons they are not blooming. 1.- Not enough light. If the leaves are dark green, the plants are not receiving enough light. Move the plants to a window where they will receive 2 to 3 hours of early morning or late afternoon sun on the leaves.
2. Phalaenopsis are triggered to bloom by temperature. To bloom, give them 4 weeks where the temperature at night drops to between 55 to 62 degrees F. After four weeks return them to your normal growing area.
HInt: if you don't have a cool spot to get the temperature drop in your home. Put them in the garage overnight for the 4 week period.
When do I need to repot?
For Phalaenopsis, we recommend repotting every 2 years. You need to repot to refresh the medium not to necessarily move them to a bigger pot.
