Epidendrums are sun loving orchids. With their vivid long-lasting flowers, vigorous growth and forgiving nature, it would be difficult to name an orchid more ideal for the novice grower than a Epidendrum. Epidendrums are easily propagated, yielding many plants from one stem; and they are tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions, including outdoors in full sun. They also have the advantage of being relatively free of insects and flowering reliably throughout the year. If you are new to orchid growing, with reed-stem Epidendrums you can enjoy a riot of colorful orchid blooms all year with minimal care. :::The plant you will receive is growing in a 3″ pot.

*FREE SHIPPING & HANDLING ON ANY ADDITIONAL PACKS OF SEEDMART SEEDS PURCHASED WITHIN 7 DAYS and PAID WITH ONE PAYMENT!:::40 Black Dragon Coleus Seeds – Great indoors or out! ::Tongues of Fire for the Shade!:Terrific texture, PLUS eye-catching red-to-violet color! ::Breathe a little hot color into the shade border or sunny window this season with Black Dragon, an unusually richly-textured, warmly-colored foliage plant. Compact, very showy, and easy to grow, it’s a must-have for anyone with a patch of shade (or empty flowerpot!) to call their own! ::The leaves are spectacular, both for their red-to-midnight-purple color shading and their rippling edges, which give the plant much more presence than most Coleus. The leaves will turn color and begin to pucker at a very early age, making this one of the most fun seeds to start indoors. (For even fuller, bushier plants, pinch back the young tips a few times during the growth season.) I sowed a packet of Black Dragon in successive waves about a month apart, just to enjoy the young leaves that much longer! ::This compact plant reaches about a foot high and nearly as wide in partial to full shade (or bright indirect light indoors). In the garden, it’s a fine companion to everything from Begonias to Impatiens. Indoors, it fills a 6- to 8-inch pot beautifully with color that never quits! ::Coleus germinates readily and grows eagerly. For bushier, fuller plants, keep the growing tips pinched. To extend the lush color into fall, remove any stray flower spikes that emerge — they take energy away from maintaining the gorgeous foliage, and the flowers are insignificant. If growing in the garden, sow about 10 inches apart. If growing indoors for houseplants, sow at any time, placing the young plants in a well-lit window. Pkt is 40 seeds.
