Orchid Supplies Shop

Over the years I have bought a lot of orchids, equipment and supplies. Especially in the equipment and supplies area it is sometimes hard to find good things at a decent price. I now have started tracking down the manufacturers of items I use for my orchid hobby and will bring them to you here in my little shop.

I will start with some digital measurement equipment, which I use to determine the right light level and water quality for my orchids.

Two ways to shop:

  • Use the PayPal buttons to select the items you want and add them to your shopping cart. At the end you can review your order and then pay either with your PayPal account or if you don't have one you can enter your credit card information for a secure, single payment.
  • If you prefer check or money order: use the mail order form and send it in together with your check or money order. Download the mail order form here:PDF Word-doc


Digital Light Meters

I offer a wide range of light meters with different capabilities and measurement ranges. They range from a simple 3-range light meter that measures in lux and is suitable for most hobby orchid growers to professional 4- and 5-range light meters for advanced hobbyists or professional orchid growers. I now also offer a digital light meter that can be connected to a computer or laptop using the USB port.

Temperature and Humidity Meters

As orchid grower you know that your plants are very sensitive to the right conditions. You probably have moisture trays and you spray your plants with water. But do you get the humidity where it needs to be? And what about the temperature? Many orchids need a drop at night to initiate the blooming. The max/min memory function on this thermometer will tell you!

Digital Water Meters for Orchids

The quality of your water is extremely important for the health of your orchids. In nature they receive very pure rain water. Tap and well water on the other hand contain a lot of minerals. These digital water meter measures the mineral content, fertilizer content and acidity (pH) of your water. These meters are also frequently used in Hydroponics and for aquariums.
