Unlike adopting a sasquatch or practicing indoor falconry, owning a houseplant is a safe way to bring nature home. Nab a secure slice of the great outdoors with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get an orchid plant from New Earth Orchids in Santa Fe (a $29.95 value). This Groupon is only valid for orchids that cost $29.95 and is not valid for phalaenopsis orchids.

New Earth Orchids' owner Ron Midgett, a regular participant in American Orchid Society competitions with 40 years of growing and breeding experience, showers petal-hounds in a smorgasbord of low-maintenance blooms. Capture the splendor of free-flowing magma with a sprig of dark red ‘Pacific Lava’ flowers, or make a romantic gesture with the ‘Sweet Fragrance’ orchid, which bears chocolate-scented white- and wine-colored petals and delivers tiny sonnet scrolls via messenger bee. ‘Golden Gate’ orchids impart a regal kiss with gold faces and white lips, both pleasantly freckled, and bright ‘Spring Fever’ and ‘Innocence’ blossoms can grow atop amenable windowsills or into self-aware boutonnieres.

New Earth Orchids

On a leisurely drive through Santa Barbara, Ron Midgett glimpsed cymbidium orchids growing in people’s yards. The cluster of star-shaped blooms, the vibrant hues, and the way the petals seemed to collapse into themselves all had Ron hooked.

Four decades later, he has taken his love of orchids far beyond the realms of adoration. He has grown orchids across the United States, bred his own blooms, and assessed hybrid blossoms as an accredited judge for the American Orchid Society. And at New Earth Orchids, he introduces gardeners to dozens of orchid breeds, earning a slew of positive press and love letters from bumblebees. Additionally, he strives to make orchid growing accessible to novice gardeners by providing growing tips, stocking proper supplies, and offering free workshops.
