    I created this list some time ago in an effort to cut down on impulse orchid purchases. It doesn’t always work though lol. I’m posting this as a shot in the dark- In the off chance that someone has clues as to where to obtain these. I understand that some of these may be extinct or endangered. Does anyone else keep a wishlist?

    Encyclia microbulbon
    Encyclia phoenicea
    Sophronitis acuensis
    Sophronitis wittingiana
    Dendrobium agathadaemonis
    Angraecum urschianum
    Aerangis curnowiana
    Angraecum popowii
    Cattleya luteola
    Phalaenopsis purple martin
    Aerangis kirkii
    Aerangis hyaloides
    Encyclia dichroma
    Mexipedium xerophyticum
    Aerangis maireae
    Aerangis gracillima
    Dendrobium cyanocentrum
    Sophronitis coccinea ‘aurea’

    Not much help on many of those but I've seen Louisiana Orchid Conn. has had Ang. popowii on their ebay a few times. I also recently saw Gold Country Orchids post on instagram about propagating Mexipedium; you could message them and see how close they actually are on that statement ;)
    Good Luck!

    Botanica LTD and Lousiana Orchid Exchange (i think they just posted an angraecum popowii today on ebay) have a lot of angrecoids and sometimes the ones you've listed. They also make import orders from sellers who grow those, usually once or twice a year ( not sure if this year tho, due to pandemic). I think ecuagenera has the encyclias youre looking for.
    Diamond orchids has posted the sophronitis coccinea aurea form on ebay a few times for sale on eBay. It usually sells for 100+ though.

    Paph Paradise has the xerophyticum. I usually check Andy’s Orchids when looking for species.

    Wow I was not expecting so many leads. Thank you all! Looks like I will be able to cross the Mexipedium and Angraecum popowii off of my list.

    Paph Paradise grows at Gold Country. We have Aerangis Kirk ii and Cattleya luteola tetraploids.

    Where are you located?

    With Andy's Orchids especially, if you don't see the species you are looking for, send an email and inquire... the website typically lists species where he has a steady inventory. It represents something less than 20% of the species that he may have at any given time. Other nurseries are also less than wonderful about keeping websites updated, so do ask if it is something that they have had in the past.

    I can’t speak for either on that matter. Wouldn’t hurt e-mailing them.
