“Orchid Pilgrimage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

One of my orchids (blc gold digger) I purchased locally at a West coast show had the RF Orchid tag on it, so when I had the opportunity to visit Florida, I had to make a visit. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. The front display spaces were full of blooming plants on sale, and there were three big greenhouses with young plants or plants not yet in bloom for sale. The facility was very well maintained and presented. There were even fresh orchids in the bathroom. The majority of the plants for sale were sub tropical (Van, Asc, etc.) - consistent with the growing conditions in Homestead. There are separate growing facilities not opened to the public, and I'm assuming that other varieties of plants may be rotated as the seasons change. The rest of the grounds had a nice shaded lawn area with a gazebo, and a large covered seating area. If you're interested in orchids at all, this is a must-visit location if you're ever in the area.

“Wowee wow wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2010

I am an acknowledged orchid addict, and this place is what I imagine Heaven must be like. From the friendly staff (who was handing out delicious lemonade) to the rows and rows of orchids, it was paradise! Would be interesting if you were an orchid grower yourself or not!

“Best orchid selection ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2009

If you are interested in orchids, look no further. The staff is great at answering your questions about orchids and their care and development. Orchids are available in hundreds of varities, many shapes and sizes. Mature and young plants available at the MOST reasonable prices plus all the things you need to help them grow. . A bit off the beaten path but well worth the trip if you are in the area.

“Paradise in Homestead”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2009

Orchadist from around the world consider the quality and variety of orchids sold at R.F. Orchids "Top Quality". But no one had ever told me that it was much much more. It is about their welcoming staff and absolutely beautiful environment. Not only were we greeted with a refreshing lemonade and cookies but their ground setup is magnificent...It is not just a store, it is a small botanical garden open to the public.
The owners travel the world and bring back collections of everything regarding orchids, pottery and statues. Their passion extends to their beloved parrots who are housed in artistically crafted cages. If you are lucky you'll get a personal tour of their private gardens.in property that has been in their family since 1920...Paradise
An afternoon at R.F. Fuchs is a vacation in itself. It recharged my spirit with its beauty,
