With about 30 plus years of experience in the orchid business in the USA, I decided to take the bold step of producing a wide variety of plants in the tropical paradise of Thailand in a region known for its mild climate. We are located near Chiang Mai (northern Thailand), in the area known as Doi Saket. Doi Saket is a mountain range, which is covered with wild orchids of many types, including the now famous Nobile dendrobium. Several of the most famous Nobile dendrobium growers are within one mile of our growing range! Our climate is perfect for the intermediate temperature growing orchids, as our farm is located at the base of the mountains. Hence we grow oncidium, warm and cool growing dendrobiums, cattleya and Vanda , Thai species, and in the future many other types of intergeneric odontoglossum and miltonia orchids and cymbidium, paphiopedillum. Our varieties continue to grow daily. Unlike most Thailand orchid growers, we grow many types of orchids.
works, and what does not work:
our experience as an importer of Thai orchids
for many years, we found that plants that were
shipped to our USA nurseries suffered greatly
from the complete removal of potting medias, and
from their very soft state of growths, caused
by poor fertilizing procedures used by all other
Thai growers. So when we established our nursery
in Doi Saket, we manufactured our own fertilizers
which make the plants properly harden and conditioned
for shipping and quick reestablishment after being
received by our customers. Also, we do not completely
remove our coconut potting media, so that the
plants do not go thru shock of transplant. So,
its typical for the plants to show no slow down
or set back after being received. Thus a
quick turn over is now possible.
