Unique/Speciality Inca Orchids (Odontoglossum Burrageara - Nelly Isler)
SORRY, NOW out of season!
At the outskirts of the Peruvian section of the Andes, in the Cuzco Valley, the difficult to reach ruins of Sayacmarca (also referred to as the inaccessible city) are located at a height of 3 624 m. Here, an illustrious monarch once reigned his people in the 15th century.
From this ancient Mayan stronghold a path descends to the powerful cloud forest, packed with mosses, tree ferns, flowers and the most beautiful orchids.This story about the origin of this plant was the inspiration for this orchid's name.
Orchids are grown with a great deal of attention and patience. Each Inca orchid is considered a pet project. A plant is grown sustainably and responsibly in a unique and intensive manner. Manual labor allows us to deliver the very best quality at all times. The original habitat of most odontoglossum-varieties is the Andes. They are epiphytic plants. They naturally grow on the trees, under filtered sunlight and at great heights, where they are used to cool nights and hot days, with fresh mountain winds and little variety in seasons. Around 1790, the first plants were discovered and subsequently these orchids were found, just at the other side of the isthmus of Panama and up, all the way to Guatemala and Mexico.
