Here at Hilo Orchid Farm we offer a range of varieties. Some varieties are available year-round, while others have seasonal blooming times. No variety is guaranteed to be in stock at any given point in time.
Our availability list will be the best way to know which varieties are in spike at any given time. The availability list will also be useful if you desire to select specific varieties as opposed to an assorted mix. If you are not familiar with our availability list, you may order an Assorted box (Grower's Choice), and allow us to select the best and most beautiful available varieties in the stage you request. This is often the most effective way to order.
Standard packing is 24 or 36 4" pot plants per box. We carefully select the box size to best fit the size of the plants and length of the inflorescence. For more information about ordering, please visit our Ordering Page.
