Waldor Orchids Wows Once Again!


Founded in 1886, Vacherot & Lecoufle of Boissy Saint Leger, France, is the world’s oldest commercial orchid grower still in operation. In honor of their 125th anniversary, Waldor Orchids (10 E. Poplar Ave, Linwood NJ 08221) has created a laboratory showing the orchid-cloning process pioneered by the French grower. Nearby, the greenhouse is filled with magnificent mericlones in a rainbow of colors produced by orchid tissue culture propagation. Past the lab and greenhouse, a cobblestone path leads to the stately family home.

Speaking of families, Waldor Orchids is run by the Off clan. Walter Off says, “We understand Vacherot & Lecoufle. They are a family business in their fourth generation, and we are a family business in our third.”
