Hi Lloyd, Karen!
I love my orchid! It is the most delicate, gorgeous little entity… thank you so much! Cary and l and Cary’s 8 new members are enjoying it since it found its way directly to the altar and the kids have a toso here on Tuesday nights. We appreciate it, thank you, thank you. And whoever gets the moola first buys the tickets!
I just wanted to thank you for the orchid tour when we were in Maui. I learned so much and was so impressed with your little piece of paradise. My orchids survived the trip back to Wisconsin and didn’t even have a broken leaf! They are in my window and are doing great. I’m sure they were a little shocked as it was -0F to -5F here this week.
Thanks for the tour and the tips. I am telling all my friends about your place.
Thank you for taking the time to talk with me today. I want to reiterate our complete satisfaction with the orchids that we have received from Fragrant Orchids of Maui. We are the envy of the neighborhood!! :o)
Dear Lloyd and Karen,
Thank you so very much for the wonderful tour and information you gave us today. Every bit of information helps to raise our awareness and we are so grateful! Your greenhouse is AWESOME and you should feel so proud!!!!!
Yes! The orchids arrived in superb shape! Our friend Sylvia had them in full beauty for the after-service reception of the memorial service for her husband. She absolutely loves them, and so does everyone else! Thanks for doing such a great job for us… we really loved coming up there to pick our own. Perhaps when Sylvia comes to visit we could bring her up there to see all your fabulous orchids?
I want to say thank you for sending the replacement orchid for the one that “committed suicide” shortly after we received it here in Florida. The replacement is absolutely gorgeous and is still blooming. My mother loves it. Again, Thank you. When we next come to Hawaii l would love to visit your facility again.
Dear “Fragrant Orchids of Maui”,
I received two beautiful Noble Dendrobium orchids as promised for Valentine’s Day, even though we had our second major snowstorm/blizzard in New Jersey in one week. My wife was knocking ice cycles off the front porch when the FedEx man arrived. Ironically, one of the orchids was Sea Mary “Snow King” and because I am handicapped my wife has to handle the snow, Thank you so very much for the fine service and fine quality orchids. We’ve had Hawaiian orchids for over 15 years and these are several of most beautiful, and economically priced I might add. Also, the “Snow King” had a total of 25 buds/blooms which is by far the most ever. I will be back for more!
You can’t go wrong with Karen’s method of packing. The plants are always delivered in 100% fantastic condition.
I just wanted to thank you. I had ordered two orchids for Christmas for my wife. They arrived in great condition during Christmas week as I had requested and were beautiful! She was very happy. I will definitely use your service in the future for any orchid purchases. Thank you again and Happy New Year!
