  • A visit to Gubler’s Orchids is a special desert adventure. The first weekend in October is the best time to plan a tour in conjunction with the annual Orchid Festival extravaganza hosted by the Gubler family and the Rotary Club. Bring the whole family and your friends they will not be disappointed discovering all the interesting and fun activities. You can purchase live orchids and other plants like Venus flytraps in the colorful gift shop. Take a class on growing and caring for orchids, don’t miss the tour of the greenhouses where the orchids are grown in climate controlled environments that are a spectacular visual treat of massive flowers in all colors. This thriving business is part of the culture and mystique of the Mojave Desert and the community of Landers.
  • We puchased two Dendrobiums a Catalaya. Such a gem high in the desert. Full of all kinds of orchids and carnivorous plants. The girls were very helpful and really know their stuff. Can’t wait to go back.
