For our hobbyist friends, we have a fine selection of very desirable species. Check the interesting Dendrobium species and Angraecoids that we carry.

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.

What are customers saying about us?

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.
