Welcome to PleioneWorld
The PleioneWorld webside is run by Erling Flyvholm. I am situated in Denmark in growthzone 8b.
Since 2010 I have been growing Pleione, and have build up a collection of species and hybrids. Before growing Pleione I have, since 1991, been growing tropical orchids, mainly bulbophyllum, aerangis and dendrobium. But for the last 6 years, I have only been growing pleione, cypripedium and other hardy orchids, mainly Epipactis.
In 2015 also Coelogyne and Disa has been entered into my collection.
I grow the plants outside as much as possible, but since not all pleione are completely hardy, they have to be protected during winter. For that purpose I have a well isolated shed, which can keep the temperature just above 2-3 °C.
From October to January I have been selling surplus bulbs, since my growing area only allow me to grow from 5-10 bulbs of the same plants. Up till now I have mainly been selling at Ebay, but from time to time I also sell directly to hobby growers, but only inside Europe due to CITES regulations.
Besides selling, I will continually post pictures of my plants, and try to give some information on growing, fertilizer, watering, pest and whatever could be interesting in concern to pleione growing. Also I will try to keep and updated hybrid list.
I have started to do some hybridization myself, and will also try to keep you orientated on that subject.
