From Fred's Website:
Our Cattleya breeding program has been developing for over 40 years, and our efforts have developed many new and unique hybrids, resulting in hundreds of AOS awards. At Sunset Valley Orchids we take a different approach: we hybridize for the orchid hobbyist, not the mass market. This strategy requires that we stay at the forefront, breeding the newest and most promising hybrids available. Our specialty is compact sized cattleyas, plants that are less than 12” tall at maturity and bloom in 4” pots. We also breed miniature and standard sizes, specializing in easy-growing plants that produce flowers in new and exciting color combinations.
All of our orchid hybrids are grown from seed, and we raise them to maturity in our 48,000 sq. ft. of greenhouse space. We take pride in offering only the best grown plants. Our rigorous selection process only allows for the strongest plants to be advanced through each phase of the production cycle. This process starts in the lab, at de-flasking, throughout the up-potting, and then carries through to maturity. This rigorous process assures that we offer only the healthiest, most vigorous plants for sale.
