Have You Ever Heard of Something called an 'Ice Orchid'?

By now many orchid growers, beginners and experienced alike, have heard the theory about watering orchids with ice cubes.  In case you haven’t, it goes something like this.

“Water your Orchid with three ice cubes a week and it will be happy as can be!”

But Why Is This Wrong?

Testimonials

"I absolutely love the plants I received from you! They were so well packed and you even included a little heat pack so that the orchids could stay warm during shipping. My plants arrived really quick after I ordered and they were healthy with no damages at all! Thank you for the great service. I would definitely consider order more orchids from you in the future!"

Shumei C.

"Loved the Open House all your staff are so helpful and it's not my first visit! Enjoyed my visit very much; good food friendly people and great plants!"

Jeanne O.

"SO impressed with their service, orchids and selection. When I ordered, everything was shipped quickly and safely. They have amazing prices for the size of the orchids, and you should definitely join the email list to check out all of their deals because they do them often and with great deals.

Taylor H.

"Great visit to you greenhouse yesterday! I appreciate the hospitality and reasonable prices! Look forward to coming back the next time we pass through!"

Chad W.

"I've loved, and bought, plants from them for years--never been disappointed!"

Sue P.

"Bar none the best orchid house I have ever dealt with, and I've worked with dozens! I don't know if they still do the community lunches, but I have great memories of talking orchids and eating amazing home cooked meals there. We always felt like family."

Scott E.

"Love this orchid house! Such a knowledgeable family business; plants guaranteed to not have disease, and if you ever have a problem with one, they are happy to take a look and give some advice. Amazingly kind."

Samantha H.

"I just wanted to thank you for the really beautiful plants you filled my order with. Even though I had to wait for the order for several weeks due to severe heat, it was worth the wait. They all arrived in good shape and were much larger plants then I expected. I know you usually get e-mails from disgruntled customers or shipping issues. I just wanted to say GOOD JOB !! and Thanks for my new additions."

Debbie H.

"Thank you for my most recent order! The plant is absolutely beautiful, the spike was well protected, and the warm pack was much appreciated. Thanks for everything."
