Motes Orchids

"Sophisticated shoppers stop at Motes Orchids..." -Susan Orlean, The Orchid Thief


A single flat rate shipping and handling fee of $18 applies to all orders, regardless of how many plants you order.

We previously offered a discount of $5 on shipments with a Florida destination. As of June 23, the USPS has removed certain exemptions particular to Florida, with the result that shipping costs have as much as tripled. Therefore, we can no longer offer a discount for Florida orders.

We cannot ship to Hawaii, Puerto Rico, or internationally without additional documentation and shipping costs. Contact us. Shipping to cold climates may be delayed.

Shipping costs continue to increase. Shipping to the West Coast has become prohibitively expensive. In addition to postage, shipping and handling involves a materials and labor cost. Vandas are bulky, which means that we get charged by size, not weight. Our shipping fees remain low relative to other growers.

We will likely have to raise shipping rates in the near future, however, we are currently evaluating how recent changes in dimensional shipping pricing will impact shipping costs before taking any action. As always, our goal is to provide the lowest possible cost to you while remaining cost neutral on shipping.
