These plants originate from my breeding program at the greenhouses of Orchids Garden Centre & Nursery, (formerly Orchids by the Ackers). Our establishment has been in the orchid business since 1963 and grows a wide variety of orchids from seed and tissue culture. Our main focus is to market orchid plants directly to the public from our 30,000 sq. ft. greenhouse range in Waunakee, WI. Orchids Garden Centre & Nursery now offers an online catalog however, many of the above items are only available through this web site of Flasks by Chuck Acker.
