We are growers, not florists!

Please be aware that if you want to send flowers as a gift, decorate tables at your wedding, stage your house for sale, etc.,  we are not your source. Most of our plants are seedlings in various stages of development. Some are at or near blooming size but others, notably cattleya seedlings and some  species, are several years from blooming size. We show flower photos, when we have them, so that you will know more or less what to expect when your plant does bloom. When we have divisions of mature plants, these are generally shipped at a time when they are not blooming.

Our goal is to provide a variety of orchid plants at reasonable prices to people who enjoy growing them and watching them develop and bloom. If you want instant gratification, there are always the box stores.

Please make sure your shipping address is correct

All too often customers will write to us saying that the shipping address on their order is incorrect. When you place an order, please double-check to make sure your shipping address is correct and complete. This is especially important if your shipping address and billing address are different or if you are having your package shipped to a third party. We cannot be responsible for incorrect or incomplete addresses entered on orders.

If you move, it is always a good idea to complete a change of address form at the post office so that they can forward any mail you receive at your old address.
