Lehua Orchids Info & News



It is time to brag! Not about the awards we have garnered and they are plenty, over 160 and counting, but about our ranking on the all-time list of “hybridizers with the most hybrids awarded”
This data comes from OrchidWiz 12.2. (more…)

Masdevallias & Phragmipediums

Masdevallias & Phragmipediums

We have discontinued carrying Masdevallias. We simply lost interest in them. However we have kept our Keeper Bench plants just in case we change our minds. (more…)

A half box size


We have been testing a 15 pack box and have had good feed-back.  So we are making this half size box available to everyone.

There is a handling charge of $1.50 per plant ($22.50 for a box of 15 plants).  This increases our Price Point Paphs to $10 per plant, delivered and Select to $13 per plant, delivered.  Still these remain very attractive prices for small quantities.  And remember, the prices we quote are always delivered prices.

The cd we had offered to societies has become a little dated. It is still available if you are really in need of something, but we would rather not. Unfortunately Graham’s son has gone on to greater things and is no longer interested in producing a new cd. However if we can work out timing and costs Graham is happy to give live talks. However if Graham comes to give a talk, please understand we will not bring plants for sale, that would be competing with our customers. We will sell you plants for your raffle table but not for retail sale.



You are welcome to use any of the photographs on the website.  Credit is not necessary; we do not want your customers coming to us!  We only use photographs we have taken of our flowers.  We do not “borrow” photographs.  There will be times when we do not have a photograph on the website, but we are working on it.  If you need one that is not on the website, check with us.  It may simply be an oversight.  Please understand all our plants are seed crosses and seed crosses do show variations in the flowers, sometimes a lot.  When we are using a photo of a flower that received an award, we will add that notation.

  • About Lehua Orchids

    Lehua Orchids is located on the Island of Hawaii (the Big island, also known as the Orchid Isle). We are on the slopes of Mauna Loa, half way between Hilo and Volcano in a community called Mountain View. In this location we enjoy the benefits of our almost daily trade winds, and nightly from the cooling effects of our “mauka” winds (winds coming down from the top of the mountain)

    In this location we are able to specialize in intermediate temperature orchids. Our daily highs in summer are about 85 degrees with a 20 degree drop at night. in winter our highs are around 75 and 60 at night. These conditions allow us to specialize in our favorite orchids, Paphiopedilums, Phragmipediums, Angraecums and Lycaste.
