The collection of Finca Dracula hosts more than 2,000 orchid species and thousands more hybrids. It is specializes on orchids from Central and South America. This is due to the many trips the founder of the farm did to South America several years ago.
The bulk of the collection are “miniature orchids” which are mostly belong to Pleurothallidinae subtribe of orchids.
Those include the Masdevallia, also known as the jewl orchids, the Restrepia, Dracula, and many more genus, since it is a pretty diverse subtribe with thousands and thousands of species.
Orchid collectors are also fascinated by the Sobralias, which only last one day in bloom. Similarly the Stanhopeas from Panama and Mexico with their rich aromas are a special treat.
Lycastes and Maxillarias of different colors are the favorite of many visitors. We have some very neat hybrids from Japan’s best breeders.
And for those who love colors, there are many beautiful lady slippers (Pahiopedilum and Phragmipedium) which are almost always in bloom.
