About Us / Matsui Nursery, Inc.

Matsui Nursery, Inc. was founded in 1967 by Mr. Andy Matsui. Over the past 42 years, Matsui Nursery has grown a number of diverse floral crops, including mums, carnations, roses, and many other fresh cut and dried flowers and foliage, always staying ahead of the market trends.

In 1998, anticipating a new trend in the marketplace, Mr. Matsui began to convert the entire nursery to the production of potted orchids. That conversion has now been completed and Matsui Nursery is now the largest potted orchid producer in the world with over 2.8 million square feet of greenhouse and shade house.

Located in the Salinas Valley of California, we have an ideal climate for the production of a large variety of orchids. Other than plentiful sunshine, moderate daytime temperatures and cool nights even in the summertime allow us to produce almost any variety of orchids and to have flowering material available year-round.

We have our own laboratory and produce many of our own plants in-house, both mericlones and seedlings. We have an active breeding program to produce and introduce new varieties of orchids for changing markets in the future. In addition, we purchase cloned plants from many sources around the world including China, Germany, Holland, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, as well as from domestic sources including California, Florida and Hawaii.


Our goal is to produce only the highest quality orchids at the best wholesale price that will satisfy your needs for pot orchids.
