As concerns over COVID begin to abate, we are expanding our greenhouse hours. We will be open from 11 AM to 2 PM Wednesday through Saturday starting June 17th when we return from vacation.
If you need a gift for a special person in Santa Fe, consider one of our living orchid arrangements in our beautiful "Made in Santa Fe" ceramic pots. These are made for us by a local potter. We can supply arrangements in sizes from a single double stem Phalaenopsis in a pot to 15 inch bowl arrangements.
To see what we can do click on the Gift Arrangements button below.
Oh, deliveries to Santa Fe, Las Campanas and Eldorado are free.
We have returned from a fun trip to see kids and grandkids. Cyndi was able to see her 2 month old grandson for the first time. What a cutie he is.
Anyway, the greenhouse is now open Wednesday through Saturday from 11 AM to 2 PM. Come in and visit!
Watch for news about our upcoming sale at the greenhouse and online. It has been over a year since we have been able to have a sale at the greenhouse. Watch for this special event.

New Earth Orchids is New Mexico's finest orchid nursery providing plants for beginners to experienced growers. 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.
Wow, we are nearly out of the pandemic and we are now able to open up the greenhouse for visitors. Our hours are 11 AM to 2 PM Wednesday to Saturday.
Orchid shows are commencing again this fall! We will be attending the Oklahoma Orchid Society Show in Oklahoma City on October 1st & 2nd and the NMOG show set for October 22nd to the 24th. More information later...watch this space.
As mentioned earlier, watch for our upcoming sale! We will have some wonderful species and hybrids available as well as divisions of some of selected cultivars from my crosses. These are not tissue cultured platelets; they will be blooming size divisions with limited numbers available.
That's enough for now...more to come later.
Ron, just wanted to let you know that the beautiful orchids arrived in PERFECT condition. Not a broken bud or damaged leaf. I’ll let Edgar know how beautiful they are. Best wishes to you for the holidays and the New Year.

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.

These were beautiful, will last a very long time and they really went the extra mile to make sure the recipient would receive them. Really a very lovely thing to give. Heather C.
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.
I currently grow Phalaenopsis. Are there other orchids that can grow in basically the same conditions?
The simple answer is YES! Phalaenopsis are lowlight orchids. There are several other genera of orchids you can try.
Here are a few: Aerangis, Angraecum, Paphiopedilum, Habenaria, also some of the Bulbophyllums and Jewel Orchids
Note that you will need to review the basic culture requirements of each of these but they all can be grown with Phalaenopsis.
