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.
