We are providing the links below to various websites that the BROS membership has suggested as ones they visit to find Orchid information.
http://AOS.org The American Orchid Society (AOS) website provides both member and public information. AOS provides not only written material but dozens of webinars for both members and public information. You can see by the "Green Dot" on the name of the webinar if it is available to the public. I have found the AOS website to be slow in response so please be patient if you do a search for information.
Below are links to websites that BROS members indicate they use to purchase orchids for thier collections.
https://laorchid.com/ Louisianna Orchid Connection is a Baton Rouge based orchid vendor. Proprietors, John Nelson and Tin-Wein Yu are both members of BROS and provide a wide variety of orchids for sale. Please click on the link above to visit thier site for more information.
https://akatsukaorchid.com/ Akatuka Orchids is based in Hawaii and provides not only orchids but tropical plants as well. They send monthly newsletter with new offerings and videos of plant care tips. At least a couple of BROS members purchase plants from this vendor with good success.
https://www.motesorchids.com/ Martin Motes is known for his Vandas but does provide monthly email advice as well. You can sign up for his newsletter on his website.
https://carmelaorchids.net/ I like Carmela Orchids in Hawaii. We used to order
from them about once a year for Orchids for Seniors. They have good prices, and
our plants always arrived in good shape. Danna Spayde
https://www.sunsetvalleyorchids.com/ They give several discounts, especially to AOS members. They also send out a newsletter quarterly, I think, with a lot of good information, especially about catasetums, which are Fred's favorites. Danna Spayde
https://rforchids.com/ Robert Fuchs orchids are long standing goto location for especially Vanda's. They have a very nice tour the nursery and have several water features, statues, antiques and of course wide variety of orchids.
