Over the years, we’ve worked with, visited, and tested buying Orchids from many companies online. Being Orchid growers ourselves and experts in the industry, it is very useful that we know what to look for when plants ship. We especially look for a planting mix which will last at least a year or two before the Orchid needs repotting again, a well grown plant, no disease, a plant early and not late in the bloom cycle, no damage to the leaves, and extreme care in the shipping process.
It is important when buying Orchids online to choose companies both with great plants as well as customer service. These 8 companies all stand behind their Orchids, and each has something different to offer from the next.
