Marble Branch Farms, located in South Carolina, is a small, professional orchid greenhouse and propagation lab dedicated to producing high-quality plants for the hobby grower. I am a novice orchid grower and have only great things to say about the health and quality of the plants I've received from this company. I've purchased orchids from the big box stores over the years and watched them slowly (or in some cases rather quickly) wither and die. A couple of years ago I found the Marble Branch website when googling, and began reading about mounted orchids. I noticed that they required a $20 minimum order and so I decided to place my first order of a Miniature and a Compact Cattleya Orchid. I received my plants packed to perfection in a timely manner, one mounted on a piece of wood and the other in a plastic pot. I've come to love the method of growing mounted orchids, the plants get better air circulation around their roots and grow and thrive on the wood mounts. Marble Branch Farms offers some of their plants already mounted, but they also have a great tutorial on their website giving easy mounting instructions. If I'm able to successfully mount orchids ... anyone can do it!
