Ocean Orchids, the only orchid-growing enterprise in Central Europe, operates in Dobrovnik, growing almost 500,000 plants a year.
In the 14,000-square-foot greenhouse, which is heated with thermal energy from their own thermal wells, 160 species of orchids are grown, providing them with tropical conditions. With the growing interest, a tropical garden has also been created specifically for tourism: its floor area was originally 700 square meters, and today it is now waiting for visitors to 1,500 square meters. Here we can observe 400 different tropical plants in conditions very similar to the original. To grow orchids, you need a laboratory, which is not here. The flowers come as annual seedlings with two small leaves from Dutch or Far Eastern laboratories.
