I bought 3 orchids from naomim320:
Epc. Kiyoshi ‘M. Saino’
Brsdm. Nittany Gold ‘Dr. John’
Mtssa. CM Fitch ‘Izumi’

I received nice big healthy plants that were very well packaged. I elected to live dangerously and not order a heat pack and the Izumi did suffer some minor cold damage, but that’s on me. One was not potted in orchiata as advertised, but since the plant is big and healthy I don’t think it merits a complaint. The seller also threw in a free Epi. Pacific Rainbow which was a fun surprise. I’ve had the plants a few weeks now and all are doing well.

Nice and congrats!

I also appreciate that you waited a little while to post so they could settle in and reveal any latent issues.

I've purchased from this user before. While my experience has been mixed, overall I think they are a good vendor who I would definitely order from again and I would recommend them to others. The prices on plants are mostly very low, and the plants I've purchased have been fairly healthy overall.

They seem to always throw in a freebie, but I'll be honest, the freebies I've gotten have all been tiny and look like they were stressed from having recently been taken from the flask or compot. They've either quickly died in my care or struggle to just barely stay alive. Now, that's not Naomim's fault and I'm not trying to be a choosy beggar, just pointing out that I wouldn't take the "freebie" into consideration as an incentive for ordering.

The other consideration I'd suggest when dealing with this vendor is that every single time I've ordered in spike plants from her, the flowers are always shown in bud or freshly opened in the photos, but when they arrive they're always at the very end of life, dried up, falling off. So, even if it's a brand new listing showing a plant in early spike, don't expect to be able to enjoy the flowers, and definitely don't pay more for in spike/bud plants from this user.

Maybe it’s a mixed bag depending on what and when you order? My Dr. John and Izumi were both in early spike which was a pleasant surprise since I asked her to wait to ship because I was going to be out of town.

The Epi Pacific Rainbow freebie did look like a recently potted seedling and a little worse for wear which I attributed to shipping stress. I think these are reputed to be pretty tough and it had good roots, in any case I repotted it and it’s taking off for me. I guess I got lucky with a hardy species.
