To my amazement, I recently learned that there is a greenhouse in Lancaster County Pennsylvania, almost entirely devoted to orchids: Little Brook Orchids, 25 Rider Avenue, Lancaster. They sell orchids, board them (a totally new idea for me!), and repot them. Here are some of the orchids in their greenhouses:

Here is the greenhouse devoted to boarded plants; visitors are not permitted to enter but can look in from the entrance:

Little Brook Orchids recently won some awards at the Southeastern Pennsylvania Orchid Society Show:

Staff members are very hospitable and welcoming; it is an intriguing place to visit.

That would be a nice job to have, quite the unique idea.
Thanks for the tour.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.
