    When giving a lei in Hawaii it is tradition to accompany the gift with a kiss on the cheek.

    The wearer will be the center of attention and it is said that you will exprience good luck by passing your lei on to someone else.

    Hawaiian Orchid Farm - Traditional Hawaiian aloha.

    by Jerelis Written Sep 7, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Kaleialoha's Dendrobium orchid leis are exquesitely hand strung and add a traditional Hawaiian aloha to any celebration.

    They can be in a single color, such as white or purple, a mix of pruple, white and lavender or one of the art shades either alone or in combination with the standard colors. Dendrobium leis look delicate but they are surprisingly strong.

    Hawaiian Orchid Farm - Exotic Hawaiian flowers!

    by Jerelis Written Sep 7, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Orchids take a long time to grow, up to 5 years for cattleyas, from seed to blooming size, but they're worth waiting for as being the most beautiful flower in the world. Since the ideal climate on the Orchid Island, Anthuriums and other exotic Hawaiian tropical flowers are all hand selected from the farm and will give a memorable touch of Hawaii.

    Hawaiian Orchid Farm - Nickname is Orchid Island.

    by Jerelis Written Sep 7, 2005

    A nickname for the Big Island of Hawaii is Orchid Island. Therefore we decided to visit an orchid farm. We visited a farm located in Puna, the heartbeat of the Big Island where exotic and vibrant tropical flowers enrich the lives of the Ohona (family) from the mountain to the sea.
