Orchid repotting service
Repotting Service available at the Menlo Park nursery only.
PLEASE LABEL EVERY PLANT WITH YOUR NAME. We suggest marker on the pot or on a piece of tape affixed to the pot.
*We reserve the right to refuse to take in:
dead, dying, infested, or diseased plants, at our discretion.
IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ:
WHILE WE WILL DO OUR BEST IN PROFESSIONALLY REPOTTING YOUR PLANT, WE CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT IT WILL SURVIVE, ESPECIALLY IF IT IS BROUGHT TO US IN AN ALREADY STRESSED CONDITION. REPOTTING MAY ENABLE YOUR PLANT TO GROW AND BLOOM, BUT WILL NOT FORCE IT TO DO SO.
PLEASE DO NOT BRING IN PLANTS CURRENTLY INFESTED WITH MITES, APHIDS, MEALY BUGS, SCALE, THRIPS, OR OTHER PESTS. If you are unsure of what you are looking at, please email us a picture and brief description to firstname.lastname@example.org .
We will get back to you with advice on how to treat the plant before bringing it in.
Please keep in mind, pre-existing damage on leaves, stems, and roots is permanent. Keeping the plant in our greenhouse will not "heal" the damage.
It is our policy to keep your plant at the nursery until the roots have established themselves and the plant is stable in the pot. We cannot predict how long the process will take however, we will contact you when your plant is ready for pick up. In the meantime, you are welcome to call or email for a status report.
Finally, please keep in mind that repotting an orchid may delay the plants re-blooming.
You are welcome to request a plant be divided, or potted up to a larger pot . We will accommodate your wishes to the best of our ability. However, if the request is determined to be detrimental to the plant, we reserve the right to choose a better option. We do not repot into decorative pots or planters; they do not have adequate drainage and are not optimal for orchid health. We do not pot multiple, or different species orchids in to a single container. We only repot orchids, bat lilies, tillandsias and bromeliads.
Local Menlo Park/Peninsula residents only:
If you have large numbers of Cymbidiums, or multiple large, heavy plants, we can make arrangements to have your plants picked up and delivered. There will be a $30.00 charge for each pick up or delivery trip.
