About Rainbeau Orchids
Don & Sue Baker, Owners/Growers

Located just outside Atlanta we are the largest orchid producer in the Southeast outside of Florida. We deliver directly to customers throughout the Southeast in our vans weekly - from the Atlantic coast to the Mississippi River and as far north as Nashville, TN. We have an acre of greenhouses devoted exclusively to orchids - 2/3rds phalaenopsis, but also cattleyas, dendrobiums, oncidiums, miltoniopsis and paphiopedilums.

We're a big small orchid grower, trying to offer the best of both. We are not a broker, buying almost finished plants from larger growers and then distributing them as a middleman. We actually grow our plants. We have a cloning program and choose the phalaenopsis with great care. From the lab we grow the small starter plants out to blooming size. In phalaenopsis we offer 2" mini-phales, 4" and 6" pot sizes. We have over 150 different colored phales, many exciting new colors just released from Taiwan, the center of worldwide phalaenopsis production. Even within white phales we offer shorter, more floriferous European hybrids to go with the taller, larger flowered Taiwanese varieties. Because we grow the plants out ourselves we get better root systems and consequently more vigorous, more floriferous blooming. Our standard is at least two flower stems on our plants from 2" to the giant 6" pots, and we achieve it about 70% of the time.

We have our own delivery fleet and can offer a very responsive service. We have a minimum delivery amount of $250, but do not add a delivery charge. We deliver to all the Southeastern states weekly. Our pricing is comparable to Florida pricing, with boxing and shipping charges included in their price. Because our plants are not traumatized by boxing and shipping, they hold their buds and have a longer shelf life.

We are responsible stewards of the environment. We grow our plants using solar panels, geothermal cooling in the summer and LED lighting. We are not an organic grower, but screen our greenhouses to keep out insects and are thus able to use organic fungicides and insecticides and less of them.
