We are trying to make room for our expanding Catasetinae collection.
Pine Ridge Orchids is a commercial nursery selling wholesale to the general public. We specialize in “florist quality” Phalaenopsis in the most unusual colors plus Paphiopedilums, both Maudiae-type and multi-floral types. We also have an extensive cloning project ongoing where we clone the best of our Phalaenopsis stock along with some very unusual color varieties of seedlings bred from Taiwan and other local hybridizers. We are also growing select hybrids and clones in the Catasetinae Alliance, specializing in larger sized flowers ranging from greens to pastels to reds to blacks.
All of our plants are labeled with the hybrid or grex name; we omit our nursery name on the tag. We are primarily a wholesale nursery - the plants are all arranged and rearranged constantly on our rolling benches, but generally we are unable to locate specific hybrids for that reason until the plants are blooming. We can accommodate most requests for specific colors if the plants are in bloom at the time of order.
We ship throughout the US using freight lines that specialize in shipping plant material in climate controlled trailers. We have found that there is much less damage to the plant material and much less bud drop if we tape the sleeved plants securely into a shuttle tray and then place the units onto the boxes; many of our out-of-state customers also use their own trucks to pick up their plant orders, which we then place in shuttle trays for safe transport with or without the sleeves and boxes. Plants can be bare rooted (the roots are secured inside a plastic baggie and taped closed) and stacked or layered with appropriate padding inside boxes and then shipped Priority Mail (usually 3 – 5 days) or FedEx if the plants are not in spike or just spike initiated with no bud differentiation. Smaller orders may be shipped USPS Priority or FedEx at the customer’s request.
Please note that actual shipping and delivery charges will be added as a separate charge to your invoice on the day that it ships. Since the charges are actual and not pre-calculated and can vary with the many choices of available shippers and their service rates, we don't have that information until the day your order ships. The choice of carrier and service level is suggested unless the customer requests another.
SHIPPING & PACKING - IF the plants are to be shipped, the plants will include the following additional costs:
If using a credit card - I have to pass on any transaction fees since tax, packing, and freight are all my cost.
Customer accepts responsibility for tracking and retrieving live orchid plant shipments from their mailbox or delivery point and unpacking in a timely fashion once delived by carrier.
SHIPPING UPDATE ---USPS Priority is NOT RELIABLE. Shipments that used to take 3 days for out-of-State addresses is now taking 7 - 11 days or more and in-State USPS Priority shipments used to take 1 day and it is NOW taking over 3 - over 10 days. There is NO TRACKING that appears on their website even though Signature Confirmation which is an added cost used to display some tracking information. There is no excuse for this!! FedEx claims guaranteed delivery PLUS full tracking --- we are now recommending FedEx but we will ship according to our customer's wishes. We have been using FedEx Home Delivery but the shipement must be made to a residence and we have to drop off the box at FedEx because they do not pick up same day.
SUGGESTION --- we have experienced some problems with credit cards not being authorized - possibly because of higher purchase amounts. One method of payment we have used with good success is WESTERN UNION. The customer can go to numerous locations to send a Western Union to us and the processing fees are less than the transaction fees the credit card company charges. Please email us for easy instructions.
Our mission is to greet and serve our customers Monday through Friday (9:00 AM – 5:00 PM) and Saturday (9:00 AM – 3:00 PM) by offering the largest and most vigorous growing orchid plants in a wide array of choice in unusual colors commercially available.
