When I make the mistake of visiting I find that your selection is so beautiful, I always end buying something even though I had promised myself to abstain -- next time."


 Thursday Oct 19, we had the pleasure of visiting your store and greenhouse in Pasadena. We were on our way home to Tyler from our boat on Mobile Bay Al. My wife and I have just recently become interested in orchids and had seen your web sight so we decided to come to the Houston area and spend the night and visit Clown Alley before coming on to Tyler.

We were met by Salvador as we got out of our SUV and were treated to the most enjoyable 2 hours we have had in a long time. Salvador was so gracious and showed us everything as well as answering all of our beginners questions.

I told him as we first arrived that we planned to build a orchid house and would probably not buy anything on that visit but just wanted to see what was available. Well, after 2 hours of Salvadors great hospitality, we came away with 14 new plants that we don't know what to do with until we can get our orchid greenhouse built.

We were sorry we missed meeting you (the Stubbings) but hope you had a nice visit to California. You could not have left a better person minding the store.

I received my order today in perfect condition. The plants were packed very well.  C. leudemanniana was smaller than expected (you must have been running low on inventory) but you certainly made up for it by sending a much larger size of the Blc. G. City "Black Orchid" and am very glad. I ordered the same cultivar and you sent it to me after the SWROGA show last Oct. It's doing fine also even though it is smaller than the one I just received....The B. Jimminey Cricket looks great also.Thanks again. I'm glad I stumbled upon your anniversary discount week. Later!

Wonderful facility, highest quality plants/supplies, and top-notch service!!!! 

I visited your Orchid business yesterday with my husband for the first time and what a pleasure! I was totally surprised at the wide variety of orchids, but also at the warm welcome and willingness to help an “amature orchid grower”. Thank you very much for all the help in picking out two orchids and I can’t wait to return! Does this mean I am addicted to Orchids? If so, I am among good company.

Hi John,
Thank you so much! The plants came in and they look great. I will definitely spread the word about CAO and would be happy to write a testimonial if you want one.

Also, I'm involved with the orchid society in ABQ. Would you be interested in speaking and selling at an event? It's a small but well attended orchid society.

Hi John, I just wanted to tell you that I got the two orchids last Sat. They look very healthy and I love that they are blooming. Thank you so much, I am so pleased. They do make me smile! I will keep checking your web site for something I can't live without. Thanks again. Oh, the Brassia Haleahi Spider has the cutest blooms open it. Diane Terry"
