WoW! I logged on, intending to order these for a friend. I forgot to put her address and hit the ORDER NOW button, accidentally sending them to myself! Normally, I don't order flowers online, especially for myself, but I'm grateful to see the quality. These are top-quality, fully loaded stems of beautiful dendrobium orchids just like in the photo. Each stem, is about 2/3 fully opened, so I'll have fresh orchids opening for several weeks. They look as fresh as if they'd been picked and rushed from the Hilo Hawaiian growers right to the FedEx airplane! We live in Northern California, so they didn't have multiple shipments through the midwest and northeast, etc. In the past, another on-line floral shipper always used UPS United Parcel Service, and those flowers would sit for a week or more in UPS' Oakland facilities and arrive wilted, etc. So I was very very pleased to see this grower use FedEx. What more can I say? A great value, stunning display (recipient will need to provide a fairly short 12-15" wide mouth vase or pitcher would work great.) Oh! Another plus -- when I would send mixed bouquets and roses to elder family members (using that other online flower "Pro", there was always a lot of difficult unwrapping and trimming of each stem, which was really difficult for my M-I-L's arthritic hands so she would just leave them in the box. These orchids are freshly trimmed, wrapped with a single rubber band securely banding the whole bunch, and packed in slightly damp shredded newspaper. So, they were EASY TO UNWRAP and stick in a vase. I really appreciated that.
After ordering flowers locally, only to see a sorry looking bouquet that the florist didn't think I'd see...and after ordering flowers online, to have some zip-checking program determine a different address so my recipient never received them, I've FINALLY found a sure thing! These orchids are exotic, fresh and amazing. For under $50, I can have a gorgeous package delivered and be sure that my recipeint got something beautiful and amazing. I no longer have to look for coupons or decide. I just send these and those who I send them to are in for a spectacular surprise to brighten their day. Look no further and order these and rest assured that fresh, gorgeous flowers will arrive when they say they will. Plan ahead since these will not ship on weekends. Absolutely lovely!
My friend loved them! When she sent me a photo and they had another type of flower mixed in them, which was not to my liking, but she still loved them and that's what counts.
