Apopka, FL

Twelve miles northwest of Orlando is Apopka, one of the fastest growing cities in Orange County, Florida. The city, which comprised just one square mile when it was incorporated in 1882, now spans more than 30 miles and boasts a population of more than 45,000 residents in the greater Apopka area.

Apopka has long been known for growing plants. In the early 20th century, the city was dubbed "The Fern City" because it produced such a wealth of ferns. Since then, Apopka has become a leading grower of indoor plants and earned a new nickname: "The Indoor Foliage Capital of the World."

Apopka is an Indian word for "potato eating place."
