We at Orchid Mania like to consider ourselves an old fashioned service oriented "what can we do for you" kind of place. When you visit our facility, please plan on staying awhile. We have a public rest room and water coolers, and most areas are wheelchair accessable, including the bathroom.
Feel free to call if you need an instant answer, or email if it can wait few days. Our hours of operation are Tuesday through Saturday from 9-5. We often won't pick up the call right away as we are usually out in the greenhouses tending to our plants. If you don't speak to someone right away don't despair, just leave us a message. We will call you back.
Please do not call us after hours. Everyone needs a break sometime!
If you have a plant that needs help, feel free to bring it in and let us take a look and make recommendations. Often times the plant needs a little TLC including repotting. You can bring the plant to us and together we will decide what is best for the plant. If we do all the work we charge $20.00 an hour plus materials used. WE like to keep the plants here until we see new root growth, which usually takes 2-4 weeks. Reason being the plants need to be kept in a dry shady place for several weeks with very little water. We will call you when they are ready. If you want to learn how to do it yourself, we offer a service (by appointment only) where you do the work with our supervision. That service is provided one time only, per person.
We offer repotting and general care classes for beginners and "know-it-alls" alike twice a year when we have our sales. They run about two hours and are jam packed with lots of fun and practical suggestions to make your orchid growing easy and successful. You may bring in a plant that you are having problems with as long as you don't mind if I use it as an example of "what can happen if". I also stay after class for about 20-30 minutes to help w/any other questions. Please call us for more information and prices.

One of the most frequently
asked questions by our customers....is where do we get our orchid potting
mix. After 10 years of trial and error, we have found that the mixes we make
up ourselves work the best for us. So we are now offering our special potting
mixes for sale through the web site and at the nursery.
