We received our first orchid about 26 years ago, and we have been hooked ever since. We started our hobby in Dallas in 1990, and when we purchased our house in 1991, we started to load up the 20 x 14 greenhouse that came with the house. We started growing extra plants to sell, started Tropicals of Texas and soon we built a new 20 x 30 greenhouse which was full within the first year. We did 30 shows a year on weekends, despite both of us having full time jobs. That led to a job offer running a midsize orchid nursery in Miami, Florida. We sold everything in Dallas and took the plunge. After 8 months we went off on our own and started Miller's Tropicals. We stayed for 12 years and learned a whole lot about plants and orchids, but we missed Texas. We moved back and bought a house in Dripping Springs in 2007 and erected a greenhouse, starting Miller's Tropicals of Texas, a combination of both our previous names. We are growing better than ever and look forward to the future back in Texas!
