Biography

It may look like a typical warehouse, but inside the doors of High Desert Orchids in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is 2,000 sq. ft. of beautiful blooming orchids. The plants are all grown under artificial lighting and a regular misting schedule to protect them from the dry, unrelenting heat and hot sun of New Mexico. Owner Kelly McCracken is quickly making a name for herself as she passionately instructs home growers on converting small spaces into an orchid oasis.

 “I’ve always had this nibbling attraction to flowers,” said Kelly. “But I specifically remember being on a family vacation when I was a kid and seeing this big orchid in a shop window, and I was amazed. And my mother stood next to me and said, ‘Those are impossible to grow.’”
