Cal-Orchid
This is an exciting time for orchid growers as the promise of the new flowering season is in the air. Cymbidiums are pushing their spikes, so there is no longer any guesswork as to whether or not your selected plant will bloom. This is a perfect time to come up to Santa Barbara as the air is clear and bright, the fog has left the coast, and orchid fever is HOT. We offer many specials on our collection of Cattleyas and species. And don't forget our world class Lycaste seedlings; they are all rooted in and ready to show off all show season.
