Once upon a time, my favorite boy toy had an orchid business. Because we lived in the Midwest, he grew them under lights rather than a greenhouse. It was amazing what a healthy root system these babies developed. Of course, it wasn’t just the lights – it was also the humidity, plant food, reverse osmosis water, and on and on. He grew those plants so well! While times were good, he also had a fairly robust customer list. But as I described earlier, the market bottomed out aand he was one of many to get out of orchid sales.
