ABOUT US

We are a family owned business, operated from our home, greenhouse, and storage facilities.  All our media is mixed and packaged by us. Our goal is to provide you with quality supplies and prompt service at a reasonable price.  Realizing that shipping costs are a major expense, we package your order in the manner that will cost the least, without sacrificing the safe and undamaged delivery of the contents.  If your order arrives damaged or is otherwise unsatisfactory, please call us so we can assist you.  If you’d like to pick up an order, or purchase an orchid plant, please call or e-mail us to arrange an appt.  Evenings and weekends are almost always available, unless we are at an orchid show.  If you know that we will be in town for a show, call us and we will bring breakables (clay pots) or large items (2 cu ft. or more) for a delivery charge of 15% to cover the expense.  Hope to meet you in person at an orchid show near you! 

Shows for 2019  (tentative) We may be at other shows also. For open house and plant sales please call.

Talks Available All  talks updated 2016

 

WHAT IS MY ORCHID TELLING ME?  An ongoing program.  Many items you do and bugs you do not see that reflect your plants.  I started this list an expanded it inot a talk after getting several orchid collections.  It has bee very well received.

 

POTTING MATERIALS. The history and future potting materials for orchids, what additives are there and why they are used. A hands on talk. See AOS November supplement. 

 

CYPRIPEDIUMS and/or Native American orchids.  I have been growing Cypripediums for over 30 years in my yard and in pots.  I presently have all the American species, 20 Asian, and many hybrids and many AOS awards..  A power point presentation  (an old slide program is still available but not totally updated.)

 

GROWING UNDER LIGHTS: A hands on talk covering different lights, light spectrums, good plants to grow under what light, and special culture conditions.

A power point presentation  & Hands on

 

NON LETHAL PEST AND FUNGUS CONTROL; Predators and new safer insecticides and fungicides for the home use. A power point presentation.

 

Dendrobiums A cross sectional look of this large group of plant concentrating on types and culture,

 

Cost of any talk: $100 plus transportation cost of 53 cents/mile, round trip, and motel cost when necessary due to time of meeting and/or distance. 

We require a non compete when coming to give talks at meetings.

 

Bulk club orders

In conjunction with giving a talk, we can bring along your society orders of supplies in our new 14 ft. box truck.  We will credit your society for 10% of the value of your orders, up to the entire cost of us coming to give the talk.  If enough people order enough items, the talk can be FREE! ( Example:  $1000 in orders will give your society $150 credit towards the transportation costs.) Everyone benefits by saving on shipping costs, and being able to purchase items we normally do not bring to shows, such as 4 cu ft Sponge Rok, 50 lb. charcoal, 2 cu ft mixes and bark, coconut chip bales, clay orchid pots, and so on.. Societies that are close in physical proximity and in meeting days may share the costs to make it even better.  Call for further details and/or catalogs.  Many societies who have done this so far are planning on doing it on a biennial basis.
