Default Piping Rock Orchids? Looking for feedback.

Hello,
I think I am getting into paphs now trying to fill my basement with orchids too . I have several parvisepalum species and they are doing ok. Now I wanted to add some more and also buy a few parvisepalum hybrids. I know there are lots at Clouds but they are mostly seedlings. From a list of vendors visiting our local orchid show I found Piping Rock orchids and they have everything I wanted (well, almost everything) in BS.
Did anybody order from them?
If yes, what was your experience like? How was the plant quality? BS paphs are not very cheap, so I would like to buy with some degree of confidence.

Thanks for your help.

Glen and his Piping Rock Orchids are great. He often gives talks and goes to shows in Canada. Send him an email, he will get back to you very quickly. One of the nicest vendors I've met: at the end of our show he was still holding a Paph for me - told me to send him a check.

Yep, I concur 100%.

Not long ago I was looking for a phrag species to add to my collection. It wasn't listed on his website, but Glen offered to look and see if he had any "hidden away". He did and it's not growing nicely in S/H culture.

Thank you Rangiky and Ray.
I don't have many paphs yet, so whatever they have listed on site - plenty for me to shop around.
Here is my preliminary list:
Paphiopedilum Fumi's Delight BS
Paphiopedilum Magic Lantern NBS
Paphiopedilum Memoria Larry Heuer BS
Paphiopedilum niveum BS
Paphiopedilum Saint Swithin NBS

They also have dunkel and albinum forms of Paph. delenatii that I really would like to get, but the size listed is 4-5". If it is a size of leaf span - it seems like very small seedling (am I wrong?). With paphs I would like to get at least NBS, so to have hope for blooms in this life .
Are any of the paphs from the list above are not recommended as hard to grow or stubborn to bloom?

Thanks a lot.

I ordered 6 Phragmipediums from Piping Rock Orchids - they were outstanding plants, I could not have been more pleased! I will always get my slipper orchids from Piping Rock Orchids!
