A trash pile was lit near the ventilation intake and the delicate plants were suffocated. Very sad. Owner is starting over in above ground greenhouses. He will be selling orchids at the City Market (River Market) weekends starting April 2019.

Wow , the cave itself is impressive then you get to the orchids. Beauty all around. Color and different types, you get to walk around from table to table. They also have a carnivorous plant room. Plants everywhere. Fun day trip.
