Although Jane and Rod Carpenter have retired in 2007, the web site remains as a source for beginners and novices. 

    We started with one greenhouse and a desire to grow these lovely plants. Now we are 4 greenhouses strong and over 7,000 blooming size plants. Since our beginning, we have won many show awards and several A.O.S. (American Orchid Society) judging’s for our outstanding plants. We have also developed over the years, several new crosses which have proven to be remarkable. Everyone asks the same question when coming to the nursery…     What does JA-RO-CA stand for?     The nursery was named after its owners:  Janet (JA) and Rod (RO) Carpenter (CA).
