R. F. Orchids – Nursery and Shops – Here you’ll find an extraordinary selection of fine vandaceous alliance orchids, from exotic species to the newest hybrids and fine mericlones. Vandas (and their relatives) are our specialty and our passion, but we also offer a terrific variety of warm-growing species, hybrids and mericlones in other alliances.
Orchid society groups are always welcome, too. Contact us to arrange your visit! We can offer special classes, private garden tours and more, with advance notice.
