Dossinochilus 'Turtle Back​​​​​'

(Dossinia marmorata var dayii x Anoectochilus form.)

-Jewel orchid

This orchid has a similar look to Macodes with a deeper green in the leaves and wider veining patterns. The veining is slightly more spread out than the Macodes petola and thicker lines making the metallic color more visible. The underside of the foliage has beautiful hues of pink and maroon. The leaves are typically light green when young but will become darker once established. The Dossinochilus 'Turtle Back' is distinctly good looking in flower as well. This is one of the faster growing Jewel orchids and is considered a medium sized variety making them great for vivariums and terrariums.

While we take a great deal of care to insure expected ship dates are met and rarely miss them, flasking orchids can be a delicate and sometimes unpredictable process. We cannot guarantee your plant will ship on this date, we do however offer 3 options should your plant not be available as expected:

    1. You can agree to the new expected ship date.

    2. You can request a full refund.

    3. You can choose another item that is of equal or lesser value to be shipped immediately.

    All pre-orders will ship prior to plants being made available for general retail or wholesale.
