--Orchid Plants & Flowers
Hawaii is the Orchid Isle. It is named for the commercial orchid industry which took hold in Hawaii in the 1940s. Orchids for the commercial trade originated mainly from tropical American and Indian species. Today orchid farms grow "hybrid" orchids which are horticulturally produced by cross-pollinating the wild species. Orchids are the second largest family of flowering plants, with more than 1,000 genera and 15,000 species common to the humid tropics. Most tropical species grow on trees where the roots hold them down and take nourishment from the air. Orchids are also grown for the spice vanilla, from the vanilla orchid. Our orchid plants are exotic, beautiful and fresh to your door from us, grown right here on the Big Island of Hawaii. Pots are 4" tall, 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" at the bottom and 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" at the top.
