“Great orchids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Beautiful garden atmosphere. Fair prices for top quality orchids. My orchids bloom year after year. Staff is helpful but they let you browse in peace after ensuring you have a nice glass of juice.

“If you love the beauty of orchids, this is your place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

What a treat! The staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable-and you are encouraged to wander thru the greenhouse and enjoy... Prices are reasonable and growing guidance is readily given. RF wants you to succeed and love your flowers! Can't wait to go back...

“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.
