  • Nice little orchid growing facility. They have a good variety of orchids for sale as well as orchid growing products. The staff is friendly and helpful. This is a nice stop for visitors who would like to view the many colorful orchids. Plenty of onsite parking.
  • A wondrous small estate with an exotic variety of common and rare orchids. A little off the main road but worth a couple hour visit. Great, knowledgeable staff.
