How much should you pay for orchids?
A standard orchid that you might see in a store or garden center will often cost around $10-$15, and rarely more than this. One of the rarer varieties could cost you as much as $100, depending on the size and type of plant. Some rare orchids that are not available commercially may cost thousands.
