While we don’t sell orchids or orchid supplies directly on our website. We offer a special program, that gets you access to exclusive, “wholesale” price discounts at a number of suppliers. This page explains how it all works.
How The Program Works:
This program is available to Orchids Made Easy Green Thumb Club members. As a member, in addition to receiving Weekly Lessons on all different topics on Orchid Care, as well as weekly “Ask the Orchid Guy” articles…
As an additional NEW member benefit, Laura and I have been hard at work to hook you up with special non-public “wholesale” pricing discounts a number of orchid websites and suppliers!
(If you’re not yet a Green Thumb Club member, you can click here to join now at a discounted rate.)
Here’s how to get your discount:
As long as you remain an active Green Thumb Club member, every month, you’ll receive an email from me with a NEW exclusive coupon code you can use at all preferred suppliers.
The same coupon code can be used at all suppliers, but the code is only good for the current month.
This Month’s Green Thumb Club Discount Code Is:
If you’re a member, you must sign in to get the current code. You can sign in here.
To use the coupon code, all you need to do is visit the appropriate supplier website, add your items to cart, and before you submit payment – enter that coupon code above at checkout. You’ll see the 20% off discount (or whatever the % off may be) taken off your order before you finalize your purchase.

Yet another “perk” of being a “Green Thumb Club” member :-)
*Please note: Because we’ve kicked this program off in July 2013, over the coming weeks and months, we’re going to be adding DOZENS of additional suppliers to the list of places you can get discounts from – on all sorts of orchid / garden related supplies and equipment.
If you have a favorite website you’d like to see added to the list, see below…
Now, a few important things:
First, in case you’re wondering this coupon code is for active Green Thumb Club members only. If you’re not yet a member, you can join by visiting:
Because the cost of the program VERY inexpensive (less than a cost of a meal at McDonald’s each month), for many people the amount of money they SAVE on orchids and supplies actually outweighs the cost of membership. PLUS every week you get a new orchid lesson and the opportunity to get YOUR orchid questions answered.
Why Don’t We Just Sell Supplies On This Website?
(Because I get this question a lot, rather than sell supplies ourselves or take an “affiliate commission” by promoting someone else’s store on our website, Laura and I much rather pass along SAVINGS to you, by using the SIZE of our readership to get you access to special “non-public” discounts – and put you in touch with our favorite suppliers who offer high-quality, affordable products.)
Have a Website You’d Like to See Added?
The most effective way to get a supplier to consider offering a special discount to Green Thumb Club members is simple:
Write to them or call them up and let them know! You can even refer them to this webpage if you’d like. And once you’ve done that, send me an email to let us know so we can follow up.
It’s sort of like getting your grocery store to stock your favorite product:
If enough people ask, they’ll consider doing it.
Okay, I think that covers everything for now.
Have a great day and I’ll talk to you soon :-)
All my best,
Ryan “The Orchid Guy” :-)
