Where in Hawaii to buy orchids?
I'll be on the islands of Maui and Oahu over the course of a week and a half. I'd like to bring back 2 or 3 orchids. Where should I go? I know Kawamoto Orchids is on Maui. Where else can anyone recommend? Someone had suggested the Maui Farmers market for cheap/nice orchids. What about on Oahu? (I prefer to buy on Oahu as that is my last stop before going home)
Also, it is my understanding that as long as the orchids are bare root, I should not have any issues with the Dept of Agriculture in bringing them back to the mainland. Is this right? How should I carry them? bare root in plastic bags? damp paper towels wrapped around roots? (I have no idea what kind of orchids I'll be buying so lots of suggestions would be helpful) Thanks all1
