Once a seedling has its first bloom, Mr. Akatsuka will take a look at the flower to decide if it meets his high standards. If it does, then he will monitor the plant for the next couple of years to make sure that the flower blooms are reproducible in size and color. It is only after this time period that he will take a tissue sample from the newest growth on the plant. This sample is then sent to a laboratory to be cloned.
From the beginning of the cloning process to the time the cloned plants first produce a bloom takes an average of about 5 years. However, each plant produced will have flowers that look exactly the same as the original plant.
Each of these flasks carry an average of 40 plants. The plants can actually stay in these flasks for about another month or so. Once transplanted, it will take a minimum of 3 years before the plants will produce their first blooms.
Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout. All perishable plant items must ship via FedEx 2-day shipping.
Due to strict Department of Agriculture regulations in the state of Arizona plants need to undergo additional inspects for a special certification. Due to this extensive effort we are no longer able to ship orchid plants to Arizona. We're sorry for any inconvenience.
