They seem to have a good amount of miniature low light intermediate to warm. On the other hand, they do not tell you a lot about what you are buying. Like size of pot mount, and family or orchid, or whether blooming size or not. This is a tech writing issue. You need to do a lot of research and maybe call them up if you want to know if a plant is right for you.

I got some plants from them last year and all were very nice plants. They were all blooming size I would say. Two have bloomed already and one I'm still waiting on.
