Where can I get an orchid plant? The sources that you have are unbelievable. One, you can use your local garden shops. Even places like Trader Joe's will travel and have orchid plants although they know nothing about them, they just provide the plants. If you're more interested into a solid, stable source of growth, you might want to go to one of your local growers, who has a wide diversity of form shape and type of plant available to you. In addition to that, if you go into and understand how orchids are in the trade, the world is your source of plants. In my greenhouse I have plants from South America, Australia. You name the place; I have them from all around the world. Part of it is knowing the procedure that you have to grow through to obtain them.
