What Happened to Countryside Orchids?

Is it still possible to order plants from them?

Countryside Orchids is no more. Bill Schneider gave it a go for
7-8 years; I remember when he first contacted me in the late 90's, asking
for advice on the Albuquerque area. He moved in, set up two greenhouses,
and did the most wonderful things with them there.

Last winter put him under; the way it's been related to me is that
the energy costs were just too much for him. Something about propane heat
expenses. There was a big sale this past winter to clean out one bay to
cut back on costs, and another sale to clean out the remaining stock this
spring. Bill has stated he's going to have another go of it, this time
with houseplants.

By my understanding, this makes my lab the largest single supplier
of orchids in the Rocky Mountains.

The address in the header is bogus. Send no email there.

I'm sorry to hear that.

&gt;Bill has stated he's going to have another go of it, this time

Oh heck. He was the only source for Epidendrum anisatum of which I am
aware. I was hoping to purchase a few from him.

I purchased an Epi. citrosumum (its pure white, waxy flowers are very
pleasantly fragrant, citrus like) from him a few years ago, and now
it's filling the shade house with its perfume. I have found something
named similarly.

Woodstream Orchids offers Epidendrum citrosmum, but the flowers are
quite different from the plant that I have:
<a href="http://www.woodstreamorchids.com/epi.html" target="_blank">http://www.woodstreamorchids.com/epi.html</a>

The Epi. cirtosmum shown here is yet another quite different plant
with a similar name: <a href="http://www.orchidspecies.com/epicitrosma.htm" target="_blank">http://www.orchidspecies.com/epicitrosma.htm</a>

This is a bit baffling. Mine doesn't look like either of those.

&gt; By my understanding, this makes my lab the largest single supplier
&gt;of orchids in the Rocky Mountains.

Congratulations on that distinction!

Incidentally, are you aware of these folks?
