    After getting my first unknnow calanthes to bloom this year I'm in search of some more.(picture is of it ) Anyone grow them ? Or know of a good vendor in USA?
    I'm wanting to stick with the non ever green ones as going dormant for me is a big plus ♡
    Thanks for all your help
    Anna

    I have ordered from them before and the plants were exelent!!!
    They have some realy nice ones.

    Btw, Calanthes are from Japan so the cultivars are mostly Japanese.

    Anna, congratulations. I had one like yours but it rotted a year ago :(. Yours looks like C. vestita var. rubro-oculata (my spelling may be off).
    Andy's has a few Calanthes and I occasionally see them on Ebay.

    Fumiaki, Calanthes are pan-tropical with the majority of the species in SE Asia. There are some very nice ones from Japan but there also some in tropical Africa, Australia, Pacific Islands and a few in the Americas.

    I've tried a couple, but I have only C. madagascariensis, which is compact and beautiful (LOC can get it), at this moment. But it is evergreen. I think Bill Mathis (link) used to have some Japanese species (imported from Shikoku Garden), but he doesn't seem to be doing retail sale this year. I communicated with the owner of Kusamono Gardens (link), and he is considering importing Calanthe from Shikoku Garden next spring. If you are interested, maybe you should drop him an email. Here is an export list from Shikoku Garden (link). Holger Perner of Hengduan Biotechnology, who passed away, used to have quite a few cool Chinese species. I've heard that Wenqing was interested in continuing the company. Andy's Orchids lists a couple species, but they are evergreen ones.
