Neo shopping in Canada Male
Default Neo shopping in Canada

Hey guys.

Any idea where I can buy neos in Canada? I have a recent neo-itch and I need some quick fix to add to my small collection.

I used to buy from Flora Peculia here in T.O., but can't find his website anymore (and Terry seem to have vanished --no response to emails and texts), and from Orchids Limited in the USA, but they most likely won't be "shipping" (i.e. coming to Canada) this year.

Thanks!

PS. Yes I did a search, but the neo-sellers' tiny landscape here in Canada seems to have changed a lot since last year.

I would find Flora-Peculia's facebook page and message them. I had the same problem with their website - it seems to have been gone (maybe they don't even know about it!).

They were at the New England Summer Orchid Fest at the end of June and I bought a couple plants from them, so they are still around.

I hope you can scratch that itch soon!

Edited to add:

Also, try New World Orchids . Kristen ships to Europe, so she might be able and willing to do it to Canada as well.

Thanks for the suggestions, Salixx. I'll try FP's FB page.

BTW, I asked Kristen last year, unfortunately NWO don't ship plants to Canada.

The Orchid Mall - Everything in Orchids might help.

Thankfully yes! He is in CA (USA) for some talks and will contact me when in town (not sure when exactly that will be)... but I'll update you once he does.

Smile Thanks!

Thanks again for all your help and suggestions as well as private offers. Terry of Flora Peculia here in Toronto was kind enough to drop by last Friday with my 10 new fukirans! This time I decided to opt for more of them than just one or two of the top ones. I showed him my existing ones (Benishinju, Kinkōjyaku, Kinkōnishiki, Kuroshinju, Magatama, Maizuru, and Ōe maru no shima as you can see I love beans) and we had some very interesting discussions.

Anyway, of course I understand that without a photo this post adds no value, so here you go y'all:



Front row (R to L): Banpo, Sengoku, Byakko, Shishinden, and Ra in'nohikari
Back row (R to L): Hōgyoku, Suigai, Kinginrasha, Hōmeiden, and Ten kōden (Tenkyuden).

Of particular interest are Banpo and Sengoku for their rare Yamagata (mountain) tsuke, Shishinden (a mutation of Surugafukurin) which is extremely yellow and dark green (no, the picture does not do justice), and Ten kōden (also spelled Tenkyuden), which is a small subtly variegated bean. Please see the photo below for the latter (again, much better-looking and contrasty in hand):



I also heard that Jason is coming to Canada in October, so he will be bringing 6 more for me .

Thanks again ladies and guys for your advice!

Regards,
Shakil

Beautiful new Neofinetia, I like the way you shop! I love the beans as well, they are so small and cute and a clump is amazing.

How nice to have been able to purchase all of these plants especially after looking for a vendor for some time. They look very healthy and nice, congratulations!
