1 Monkey Face Orchid ( Dracula Gigas )


1st quality Plants 

These plants are from nursery, not from the wild, and from seeds!

Blossom Size


(Please questions BEFORE bidding, thanks :)  )


We DO NOT sell anything that endanger the planet or make it poorer: all the plants come from nursery, often from the area of origin and from Associations that spend time and resources to study, take care, preserve and replant the varieties that are under danger, in the original areas.

We DO NOT buy (so we DO NOT SELL)  OMG / OGM when seeds : we work hard to find peopel that share our ideals and plant, grow and prepare the seeds in the 'old way', no factory, no labs.

Just very good quality seeds as real seeds are celebration of life!


We try our best to provide you Heirloom seeds, seeds that are our heritage, the good old taste, seeds that are risking to get lost forever because the people don't make their own seeds anymore but buy standard packets.


1 Dracula Gigas

Blooming size, 1st quality


the following 2 plants are available now. 

Who comes after will go in pre order ( I should get the new delivery around the 18/09 )

 

The draculas in the photo are the plants available, the ruler is 15 cm, as reference.

All the plants are very healthy and 1st quality, who comes first choose first :)

The plants are blooming size ( refers to a plant that has the potential to bloom for the first time within a growing season / 6 month )

IMPORTANT!

I do not know the knowledge of orchids you have but it is important I put 2 point in focus:
1. all of them have a leave that is crinkly. This is due to the way there were born and kept: in a terrarium, with not too much space.
So it is not a default but just a normal of lack of space in this conditions, but it also means they are not eradicate from wild areas.
2. since I got them I have decided to make them live outside.
The weather is perfect!
Around 20C during the day and 8/9C during the night, perfect!
It means that the plant is hardening ina real life condition but it also mean that it looks less 'artificial' ( they may have a spot on leaves for instance).
Again it is natural as the plants are living in a natural environment.

I am sure you know all that but has I never met you and many people are new to Orchids I think it was worthy to spend few words.

If you never had a Dracula please send me the note for the pdf guide
They are a bit different from the others and delicate ( and not much flexible too in matter of needs )

Very rare orchid!

The orchid genus Dracula, abbreviated as Drac in horticultural trade, consists of 118 species. 

The strange name Dracula literally means "little dragon", referring to the strange aspect of the two long spurs of the sepals

They were once included in the genus Masdevallia, but became a separate genus in 1978. This genus has some of the more bizarre and well-known species of the subtribe Pleurothallidinae.

These epiphytic and terrestrial species are distributed in Ecuador. 

This is called Dracula Gigas and you can read about it in magazines and I am sure you saw on tv, it is very curious and also absolutely rare. 

Often in the internet it is confused with the ' Dracula Simia ' but they look different: the monkey face is the Gigas.

They prefer shadow and an even, rather cold, temperature.

In fact they grow in the misty, cloudy mountains in Ecuador, around 2000 mt tall.

The wish to stay cold at night ( 8/10 C max) and not more than 20C during the day.

And love the humidity so do not forget to spray them with water ( save the one from the  rain    as they do not like the tap one!)

When they start flowering, if they find the right place, they won't stop as they are not dormient.

No need of braight light, infact in the place of origin the mountains are misty s absolutely not on the direct sunlight!

Lovely, lovely orchids


There is not a right or wrong time but generally we expect the payment withing 7 days. If for some reason you need more time please contact us and we will be happy to wait without starting any automatic process to get back our ebay fees.

We are also happy to solve any problems as we believe that nothing is impossible but we need to be aware there is one so please write us :)

A personal note:
seeds are alive, they are fresh and full of life when they are sent to your door.


If you don't want to fail,
 Please  provide them the right conditions to start growing and to grow strong (weather, temperature, water, right season, right soil, etc) and you won't be disappointed.

The seeds come with no instructions as they are very basic but in case you need them please let us know and we will email them to you.

The bags are transparent zip bags, we count the seeds one by one until 250, then we weight them so the number of seeds will be 'average'. We are normally generous ;)

Thanks for reading and happy gardening,

We send 1st Class which is reliable but not traceable. We strongly advice to ask for the traceable rate as we will be responsible if lost .

( we are not responsible in case of loss if 1st class).

Postage is not just the stamp, but all the material required to send your new item to the comfort of your door, including our queuing in the car and in the Post Office.Many Thanks :)

All the parcel will leave our office withing 48 hours (but generally withing 24...and often the same day!)

As we know how much nobody likes the postage

 we decided to add a  free surprise gift with every parcel
to help you to 'deal' better with this extra cost.
 
You will find in your packet, in a little bag, the same seeds we sell on ebay, free
 (minimum value of 99p!!!!)
so your shipping won't cost more than 0.26!

FOR COUNTRIES outside the UK

Please check that you can receive seeds. Some Countries (ex Australia) destoy ALL of them. We cannot be responsible for that.I advise to ask us the price for a traceable parcel which is a bit more expensive but tells us what is going on. 

I try to send in letters (seeds are safe do not worry!) as you have more change to get it ;-)

In case of problems please contact us: everything can be solved with the communication, especially if it's polite!

We have no control of the shipping/transit since we leave the parcel in to the Post office's Lady (Unless it'is traceable, which we strongly suggest)

SEEDS are shipped within 48 hrs after payment.

 Seed is a live product which depends on many important related grower skills such as proper planting time, seed depth, type of soil, watering, proper use of fertilizers, weed controls, fungicides, insecticides, disease free soil, and reasonable weather conditions during the growing period. 

Germination is affected by such factors as temperature, moisture content, light intensity and contamination of planting media. These factors are totally outside of our control and are the buyer's responsibility and risk. 

PLANTS are all 1st quality, healthy and selected. They are sent courier or 1st class recorded 'before 1 pm ' service in order to preserve them. 

 The photo, if available, is for pure courtesy. 

We have the right to choose the plant which, as previously said, are all the same quality.
