With Winter here, for the most part it will be too cold to ship to most areas of northern and western U.S., and orders to these areas will be held for warmer weather, or you can wait until Spring to order.
As orchids are mostly tropical plants, we cannot ship to areas where they will be subjected to temperatures at or below freezing either during transit or upon arrival. Use caution and common sense when ordering orchids at this time of year. Our friends here in Florida and the southeastern states can order pretty much year-round, but the rest of the U.S. will have to moniter the temperatures very closely. You can order at any time, but be aware we will hold all orders at our discretion until there is a week of moderate temperatures for safe shipping, unless you take full responsibility for any damages or losses.
Although it is much more expensive, Express (Air) shipping would be the best choice for shipping in cooler weather. Even though it may be warm enough where you are (CA, AZ, etc.), it may be too cold between here and there for safe Ground shipping. If in doubt, or the weather is borderline, go ahead and place the order. That way we will have it and can ship out as soon as a window of safe weather presents itself. Again, use good common sense when deciding to order, and we will do the same when deciding when to ship. Thank you.
Welcome to the World of Odom's Orchids, Inc.
Odom’s Orchids For Sale Online: Cattleya, Phalaenopsis, Oncidium, & More!
Though our customers have trusted us for years with our expert orchid care, growth, and cultivation, they also trust us with something other things that are just as important: smart, safe shipping and good, honest business.
Because we sell orchids by mail and online, the vast majority of our customers never see the orchid plant they buy in person until it arrives on their doorstep. (If you are around Ft. Pierce, Florida, then you should definitely drop in to see us!) For this reason, we take the shipping side of business very seriously.
How Our Orchid Website Ships
The majority of our orchids ship via FedEx Ground service. During the warmer months, shipping around the country doesn’t present too great a challenge. We recommend Express (Air) shipping during cooler weather, but realize that the price isn’t always within customers’ budgets. No matter how your orchid plant is shipped, we always check weather forecasts. If we think that your orchid may be subjected to extreme cold/below freezing temperatures then we’ll hold your order until temperatures rise. The only thing that will release your order is if you agree to assume full responsibility for damages or losses – though we certainly would not encourage you to do so!
Buying Orchids: By Mail or Online
We mentioned that the second reason our customers trust us is that we’re known for our good business practices. We know that most customers prefer to browse through our orchids for sale online on their own. You might have a question or two (our line is always open) or you might know exactly what you want. We try to streamline the online shopping process as effectively as possible for ordering through our orchid website.
Then again, we realize that there are other customers that prefer to order their orchids by mail or over the phone. Odom’s Orchids has designed an infrastructure that aims to make this process as simple and thorough as possible. Many customers who buy our orchid plants feel they get first-class product and first-class treatment, which is why they’ve been coming back to Odom’s time and time again!
Pricing, Types of Orchids for Sale, & More
Lastly, we’d like to mention that we have lowered the prices on many or our orchids in order to help customers stretch their dollars further than ever during these tough economic times. We’d like to invite you to browse through our online store for beautifully splashed Cattleya, exotic Lady Slippers, stunning Oncidium, and many more high quality orchids. Our offerings are constantly changing as we continue to grow.

Gift IdeasSince most orchids only bloom once or twice a year, the chances of ordering a specific orchid for a gift and having it blooming at the right time is rather slim. If you want to send a gift (even to yourself!) and want to be sure it is blooming, we have special offers for orchids in bud/bloom for any special occasion. We also offer gift certificates for that person who you have no idea what type of orchid to get. Click on the 'Specials' or 'Gift Certificates' links above.
Happy New Year!
Hope everyone's holidays have been great! We'd like to take this time to wish everyone a happy and healthy new year, and thank you all for visiting us here at Odom's Orchids, either on line, or in person. Keep checking in with us for new plants and specials in the new year.
Thanks and Happy New Year from the staff at Odom's Orchids.
