How to Use This Website

Important!

The prices on all plants sold by Oak Hill Gardens are determined by the size and condition of the plant ( not by the size of the pot - we include the pots for free!).

We feel that this is the fairest way to offer our orchids. Pot sizes are provided to give the catalog user a general idea of the size ranges of the plants. Sometimes have trouble keeping up with the repotting of our many varieties. At times you may receive a freshly repotted plant. You may also receive a plant that may be slightly overgrown in its pot (we try to repot plants that are in need of fresh media before sending them to you).

In this catalog, plants varieties have been listed with one size, or in many cases two or three sizes for each variety. The higher the price, the larger the plant. Blooming size plants are denoted with an asterisk (*) next to the price. This means that they are of sufficient size to bloom in the next normal blooming season for that particular variety. Many, but not all, varieties have previously bloomed. If this is important to you, please contact us for clarification.

In some cases, we have larger and smaller sizes available than what is listed on the website. You may indicate in the comments section with your order if you desire larger or smaller plants "if available."

If there is more than one price listed for a given variety, please click on the price you wish to pay for your plant, which will relate directly to the pot size.

LIGHT REQUIREMENTS

To help you determine the best possible growing location for your orchids we are now listing our general light requirements.  Keep in mind that these are ballpark guidelines only.  Many factors will affect your individual light transmission such as window screens, type of glass such as Low E, specific orientation to the sun, overhangs and outdoor obstructions.  To obtain the best level of growth and the most reliable flowering, we always recommend that your orchids be given as much light as possible without causing damage to the leaves.  Remember, it is often the high air temperature created by the light rays that cause sunburn.  By providing cool air movement you will allow the leaves to remain at a safe temperature while in a high level of light.  If you have questions regarding a specific plants needs, please feel free to contact us or refer to your favorite publication or the Internet.   We often rely on Jay Pfahl’s comprehensive website at www.orchidspecies.com as well as the software program OrchidWiz, which is available for purchase online.

Shade – No direct sun at any time.  Indoors: east exposure, but make sure no direct rays shine on plants.  A large northern exposure is generally ideal.  Outdoors: deep shade only.

Indirect Light – Indoors: an east exposure is generally ideal, but some direct light may be tolerated if it is not hot.  West and south should be filtered from any hot direct rays.  In some cases a large northern exposure is suitable.  Outdoors: shade with only brief periods of dappled light.

Bright Indirect Light – Indoors: generally any exposure other than northern is suitable.  Some direct light should be provided and the duration of such will depend on air temperature and movement.   Outdoors: bright shade with some dappled light, more dappled light in cooler conditions.

Bright Direct Light – Indoors: full unobstructed large eastern exposure to partially direct west and south.  Keep in mind that cooler air temperatures will allow longer periods of direct light to be tolerated.  Outdoors: dappled light most of the day or some periods of extended direct sun in morning or late day.  Give these plants as much light as possible all year for best results.

Very Bright Direct Light – Indoors: provide sunny exposure at all times.  Outdoors: nearly full sun constantly, except when daytime temperatures are at peak levels.

In general, softer leaved plants and plants without pseudobulbs require more shade and are usually shade to bright indirect light plants. They also generally like to stay on the moist side. Plants with thick leaves of heavy substance and pseudobulbs usually require more light to grow and bloom successfully. A few of these plants fall into the bright indirect light category with most falling into the bright direct light to very bright direct light category. These plants also store more water in their leaves and pseudobulbs and in general like to dry out a bit before a thorough watering.
