Orchids of Los Osos
of Los Osos is situated on almost nine acres in Los
Osos Valley, and has been growing orchids for 30 years.
We have 40,000 square feet of greenhouse space devoted
to production and a tissue culture propagation lab.
nursery is part of Rancho de Los Osos, a Spanish land
grant recorded in 1793. The micro-climate in this
area - located in California's Coastal Range - coupled
with the purity of water drawn from our own wells,
makes us particularly suited to the production of
orchids. We specialize in the cooler growing genera
although we have extensive square footage devoted
to the warm-growing varieties as well.
to the environment, most of our orchids have been
propagated from seed or mericlones in strict adherence
to CITES guidelines. We regularly monitor pesticide
use and any other activities with a potential for
harming the environment. We pay particular attention
to the health of our plants so that you can be assured
of getting material that is vigorous and free from
pests and diseases.
halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, our
operation is open to visitors if you're ever in the
area. Please make an appointment first so that we
can schedule the time to serve you better
