Fair Orchids

I worked in my dad's orchid nursery after school & weekends for 9 years.  After many years away from these seductive plants, I caught the bug again in the mid 1990's, and my hobby/passion/compulsion was reignited.  I offer talks on several orchid subjects to orchid societies, garden clubs & Master Gardener groups.

Since 2014 I have exhibited at NJOS & DCOS shows, with the intention to do a few more events in the years to come.  I usually buy multiple plants of anything that interests me, and I raise many seedlings from flask, so I always have extras available.  If you are tired of NOID Phalaenopsis, please feel free to download my price lists to see some far more interesting options.    

Orchid Seedlings in Flasks

Any cross I have made, was made with a specific purpose.  I never breed something 'just because they were in bloom at the same time'.  My 2014 pods are due out of the lab this summer/fall.  I have extras available of the crosses shown in the price list.

Established Seedlings, NBS & BS Plants in Pots/Baskets

I have grouped related genera into individual price lists.  If you are tired of NOID Phalaenopsis, please feel free to download my price lists to see what is available.  NOTE:  I only have a few pcs of most of these plants; if you see something you might want, please do not wait too long to contact me, or it might be gone.
