Rarities' is most interested in offering the hardy orchid

ochracea var. Pink form
Any plant is
rare for two main reasons, a slow growth rate
and special growth requirements.
Other reasons include plant collection and
unmanaged land development with respect to the
of its ecology, both of which we are opposed to.
For these reasons we are pleased to offer plants that are grown from seed in-vitro, or artificially
in sterilized flasks and formula. We also offer plants that are rescued from the wild with permission from state authorities on land that is destined for roadwork or development.
