“A feast for the eyes, relaxing and great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

We stopped by this orchid nursery and had a great time. Beautiful grounds even before you enter the orchid area. In fact they have a very nice pavilion that they rent for weddings and events.
The greenhouses are full of blooming orchids. The plants vary from very small to rather large orchids. The blooms are just beautiful with a rainbow of colors represented. They also have a good assortment of orchid pots (clay and plastic) and a variety of tools.
Prices vary from $10 to well over a hundred dollars and they can ship what you purchase (weather permitting). Some good sales when we were there, got a couple of nice small orchids for $15 each.
The staff very helpful and they offered us fruit flavored water and chocolates while we were there.
A beautiful place, some sofas to seat and relax. The nicest bathrooms I have seen in a commercial building, they had beautiful orchids in the bathrooms.
I would return even if I don't buy any plants.

“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!
