This is not an attraction that you should schedule a day around but if you are looking to buy an orchid or two it is a good choice! There are koi fish, freshwater sharks and red eared slider turtles to feed. The owner is very nice and knows a lot about her namesake. They will ship the plants back to... More

The entrance to the place has an asian theme with a fairly impressive facade except for the damaged greenhouse on the left side of the building. Once you go inside the doors, the impressive stops there. Inside the place you walk in and there is a showroom or what they would like to call a showroom with some flowers, plants... More

The Fish and Game or the humane society needs to go in and confiscate the parrots in this horrible rundown place. The parrots are living in filth and excrement, in dark closets that one cannot breathe in. It is the HOUSE OF HORRORS for these poor parrots!! I pray my review will make somebody go in and shut this place... More

This place is completely run down. The animals are not cared for at all. Very sad. The green house has half the roof missing. Do not waste your time.

Don't even bother driving there, there are virtually no orchids, just a fairly large greenhouse with some tropical plants (not orchids) and a couple of loud parrots. The only few orchids that could be seen were for sale in the entrance hall. Apparently the place suffered a lot from a hurricane in 2004, and never got back from that. BN

For what ever reason A World of Orchids has become a ghost of it's once former self. We visited a world of orchids on a trip 8 years ago and it was a beautiful exciting place for any orchid lover. Beautiful garden paths with rare orchids and other tropical plants. On a trip in December of 2005 we visited again... More
