In 1979, the three of us, Lucinda, Cordelia and Marguerite bought J and L Orchids from Janet and Lee Kuhn. After 35 remarkable years in the orchid business, we are ready to transition to a new phase in our lives and are offering J and L for sale. We are genuinely grateful to all of you, our loyal customers who have supported us over the years. Until the time the sale is completed we will be continuing business as usual.

J and L Orchids is being offered without the greenhouse and property so it can be re-established anywhere. Because a substantial percentage of our plants are compact growing our entire inventory can be accommodated in a 3,000 sq. ft. growing space.

Included in the sale is our NAME and impeccable WORLDWIDE REPUTATION, PLANT INVENTORY, MAILING LIST, WEBSITE that generates a continuous year round income, and all necessary BUSINESS CONTACTS. We have been informed by US Fish and Wildlife that the transfer of our extensive CITES Master List will be a simple procedure, enabling the new owners to sell orchids internationally. Here is a chance to travel the world in the name of orchids. J and L is invited everywhere.

If you are genuinely interested in owning a legendary orchid nursery, please contact us.

Summer is here and our greenhouse is filled with lovely orchids. Over the last few months, we have been dividing many of our select stock plants and have a tempting selection of these plants available. Although we try to list as much of our stock on the web as possible, if you are searching for a particular plant, send us an email, we may have it.

If you are traveling through the area during the summer, stop by and see us. We love to have visitors.

On Saturday August 2nd we will be hosting a free one day Culture Workshop. We will cover topics such as Growing Underlights and Repotting and Dividing. More details will be available soon.

We have three Special Events at our nursery during the year.


All three of us love to give talks to orchid societies and welcome inquiries. Here are some of our topics. MINIATURE ORCHIDS is constantly changing to include a wide range of genera and is our most popular talk. WARM GROWING PLEUROTHALLIDS gives a lot of cultural information about the warmer members of this fascinating group. THE CULTURE OF MASDEVALLIAS will demystify growing this fabulous genus. THE STRANGE AND WONDERFUL WORLD OF DRACULAS illustrates some of the most bizzare and creature-like members of the orchid family and tells how to grow them. MINIATURE AND COMPACT ONCIDIINAE explores the lesser known but equally showy members of this subtribe. Please contact us for availability and further details.

Please check our Calendar.

We offer a 10% discount on domestic preorders that are delivered to one of our society talks or shows we attend.
