Wonderful place to visit and you can order orchids to be sent home at reasonable prices. I had no idea there were so many varieties of orchids - and so beautiful!

Hawaii is also known for their tremendous variety of Orchids. One cannot imagine all this beauty in one place. The colors, shapes, sizes and,believe it or not, scents are all here and you will truly enjoy this stop if you are a plant lover.

The orchids are dazzling, but the prices are high. Seems more like a tourist trap as the big tour buses all seem to stop there. I believe unless the person knows about raising orchids personally, they should look, but not buy. Other orchid farms are much cheaper and usually welcome visitors with a prior phone call.

Stopped here since we have a friend who raises orchids and recommended it. What beautiful and distinctive orchids! Amazing the varieties! Saw one for $20,000 from Thailand! But you can buy one for $27; however, be aware that not all will survive a different elevation. This place is located right outside of Volcano, HI which is quite elevated and cool. Nice gift shop also.

The variety of numbers and types of beautiful orchids is almost overwhelming, but there is not pressure from the very friendly, very informative staff. Remember to buy several small plants to fit into the shipping box with your larger plant--no extra shipping cost!
