What’s New?

Products & Services

The 2016 online version of our  catalogue is now available! It includes our standard cattleya hybrids, jazzy new ones, and a few package specials. To make it easier to view our catalogue, we have broken it into four sections.

Flowering or Budded Stock

We try our best to accommodate your catalogue choices in bud if we have them, but that’s not always possible give each individual hybrid’s flowering season & when you order them.  We always try to have a variety of budded stock available that doesn’t make it in our catalogue, so if you give us a call, we can tell you what we have in season at the moment.

We now sell an excellent selection of greenhouses that are easy to install with a kit, a video, and a screwdriver.  Our friend, Maria, who works on Fridays and Saturdays, is our “greenhouse rep”.  She can show you pictures of her new greenhouse from start to finish.  Also, she can give you pointers on making this particular dream come true.

We can help! Our orchid care professionals are available to answer any questions you may have about our products or orchids in general. Contact us for care information about interesting topics such as re-potting to orchid re-flowering techniques. All you have to do is ask. We’ll do our best to provide you with the knowledge to become an orchid expert yourself. Please visit the Greenhouses website for more information.

Many orchids are rewarding indoor plants. Once a home owner has succumbed and bought his or her first orchid, or received one as a gift, meeting a few cultural requirements will coax the plant to flower again.
Orchids are far tougher and hardier than most people think, and are, by and large, extremely adaptable. There is a long-standing myth that orchids are difficult, if not impossible, to grow, especially without a greenhouse. With at least 20,000 species and some 100,000 artificial hybrids, there are some notoriously fussy orchids. But there are many rugged, popular, easy-to-grow types that adapt to the temperatures and light conditions found on the average home windowsill. Explore the options and assemble a collection that will put forth exotic flowers year-round.

Orchids are different from other houseplants. Unlike ferns, philodendrons, palms and Swedish ivy, orchids do not grow in soil. Potting an orchid in soil is actually one of the best ways to kill it. Most orchids in the wild are not rooted in the ground, but instead attach themselves by thick roots to the sides of trees and on branches. Clinging to the bark, the plants absorb water and nutrients from the air and rain and whatever drips down the tree. They are adapted to surviving when rain is scarce, hoarding water in thick leaves, stems and roots.
