More from Kawamoto Orchid Nursery

Today spring starts in San Francisco with a cool rain, but it’s easy to warm up with more photos from our recent¬†Hawaii trip. Kawamoto Orchid Nursery in Honolulu was so packed with incredible plants that my first post just scratched the surface. Here are more tropical beauties to welcome the change of season:

As I mentioned in the last post, I escaped our Kawamoto visit without any plant purchases because I just don’t have space for warm growers, like the Cattleyas, Vandas, and Dendrobiums above. I neglected to point out that Kawamoto also has many more temperature-tolerant varieties. Many¬†intermediate growers, like the Coconut Orchid, Epidendrum, and Zygo below, don’t need as much warmth. They can grow well for orchid lovers who don’t have a greenhouse or tropical conditions. I still don’t have room for any more myself, but they certainly are great as heralds of spring.

    Hi Pamela. The purple and white one is a Dendrobium hybrid. I don’t have its exact name, unfortunately.
