Maui's wild orchid - growing in Haiku Maui HI 96708

purple wild orchid on Maui

This is one of the native wild orchids that grows by the roadsides in Haiku Maui.  It's only a small plant and before it flowers you would hardly notice it as there are only a few long leaves.  They say that if these orchids can be found it must be a healthy ecosystem as they are very sensitive.

Cultivated orchids are big business on Maui and you can find many retail stores selling a huge variety.  I like to visit the nurseries where they grow them since they are very knowledgable about which type will do best in your area.  Maui has a lot of microclimates and there are orchids suited for each district.

If you live in Haiku you might consider shopping for orchids at these nurseries:
