Default Any recommendations for orchid nurseries near Orlando, FL?

I'm going to Orlando and I'd love to check out some orchid nurseries nearby, because, well, I have a serious orchid addiction that can't be helped . Right now, off the top of my head I'm thinking Krull Smith and Odom's. I did a quick google search and also found Tom Ritter Orchids. Any other ones that you recommend? I'm especially looking for phal species and paphs/phrags, but I'm also interested in catt and den species.

Tom Ritter Orchids is about a half hour away from Orlando in Kissimmee.

Odom's is the best! You don't need to visit any other nurseries.

Another vote for Odom's. Recently got three from them, one in bud (a surprise as it was supposed to be a year from blooming).

Odom's is in Fort Pierce. That's about a 2 hr drive from Orlando. Not my definition of "close by". But then everything in Florida requires driving. Ritter Tropic 1 is in Kissimmee. Haven't been there since they moved from Sarasota. But they were very big back in that day. Give us a report after your trip. Always appreciate good intel!

, I like Odom I stop by every time I go up to see my daughter in Port Saint Lucie or my Grandson in Orlando. I just bought 3 Phal Species in late June, all are either in bud or blooming (purchased all in bud)....Zoren..

Awesome! I think I'll be heading off towards the beach anyways so Odom's is "sort of" in that direction. It'll probably an extra hour driving south.

I'm also interested in carnivorous plants (especially pinguiculas). I wonder if any of these orchid nurseries have them!

I can't wait, only a few more days to go before my trip. I think I need to stop myself from buying too many orchids!!
