Our major difference from most of the other nurseries and vendors is that we breed, grow, and market our own products! We seldom buy and sell other vendor's or grower's products. We are proud of what we are offering! We back our products 100%. We always offer plants that have never bloomed previously or are screened unless we specify in the product overview. So your chance of getting an award quality flower is as good as anyone.
We focus on slipper orchids!
Our products include:
* Paphiopedilum species which include, Brachypetalum, Parvisepalum, Multifloral and their hybrids.
* Phragmipedum species and their hybrids.
* Cattleyas and a few other species.
Some photos on the website are actual representations of the flower or the parent flowers. In most cases the photos are representative of what the flower would look like.
Our pricing policy is based on the quality, quantity of production, and supply and demand. Therefore you might find a similar cross is more or less expensive to another.
As we all know, orchids can take a long time to mature and flower. In some cases it can take up to 5-6 years to bloom.
Here are the sizes and representations of our products:
* LS - Leaf span from right to left tip of the largest pair of leaves, expected to take up to 3 years to mature and flower.

BS - Blooming Size, expect to flower in the coming season.
xG - Per Growth - price is per mature new growth. Example 1G, 2G, etc.
D - Division - described under Product Overview.
Flask - each flask contains approximately 25 plants that are ready to deflask.
Selected - These plants are in bloom or have already bloomed. We designate these plants this way as they are the best that have bloomed!
Time to mature and flower are highly dependent on your growing environment.
Most of our plants are grown in 2.25" pots or more.
Since we are always trying to improve our breeding, we apologize that we are not be able to show photos of some of our newer crosses. It is because we have not bloomed these crosses yet.
We make the best effort to provide healthy plants. However problems do occur. If damage appears to have occurred in transit, please notify the carrier and us immediately. If there is ever a case of something like a mislabeled plant, we will do our best to make amends.
Orchid Inn, Ltd gives no warranty, implied or expressed as to the productivity of any plants. Many of the crosses offered are speculative and it is impossible to predict with certainty the outcome of hybrid crosses. The descriptions listed are our best experience for that particular cross.
Our liability, in all instances, is limited to the purchase price of the plants.
