Orchid Mania started in October of 1993. I had lost my job and had no idea of what I wanted to do. Thanks to my husband, Jack, who held my hand and led me into the world or orchids. As for my usual manner, I kicked and screamed until I opened my eyes and fell in love all over again with my husband... and orchids. We started small, with one green house and a booth in a flea market. Sixteen years later, I am still learning and still have my passion.

I want to share it with you.

We now have a beautiful ten acre home and business, and as many kinds of orchids that I can find to grow. Please come and see. You won't be disappointed.


Orchid Mania is nestled on ten acres of trees and ponds in the quiet countryside where more than 50,000 orchids are grown and sold at reasonable prices to wholesalers and to the public.
As you tour the 6 greenhouses of the many wild and hybrid species, our friendly staff can help you in choosing the orchids that best suit your particular needs. Their expert advice on orchid care will insure your growing success. Also be sure to get on the E-mail List for free orchid care and repotting classes as well as the huge sales Orchid Mania offers throughout the year.  
  Since 1993, the orchid-growing business has 'blossomed' into 15,000 square feet of nursery/greenhouses. We arejust east of Interstate 75 in eastern Manatee County.

The trees are bursting with orchids.
