ORCHID PRODUCTION

ORCHID PRODUCTION

The company offers larger, more mature orchids than are generally available elsewhere, enabling its customers to achieve more rapid turn-over of their costly bench and greenhouse space.

The breeding stock used by Orchidom’s hybridizers, from which the orchids presently offered for sale are descended, is the product of decades of collecting, selecting and breeding by the company’s principal hybridizers. These breeding collections feature many plants that are the product of generations of breeding effort and are on the cutting edge of orchid breeding today, especially the company’s Phalaenopsis, its compact-growing Dendrobiums, its smaller-growing Oncidiums, and its Midi-Cattleyas. The company’s principal hybridizers are active participants in the American Orchid Society’s Orchid Judging Program, and plants from their breeding collections have been recognized by the American Orchid Society with more than 300 flower quality and cultural awards.
