They have a tooon of unusual orchids, especially miniatures.

Prices are very decent and I'm tempted to order a few plants, but there's unfortunately no pictures or reviews that I can find.

I know I came across some reviews recently, but can't remember in what direction they were. I remember that back where I moved here some 10 years ago, the reviews were so-so (if I recall correctly), but vendors can change over time, which is certainly the case for another dutch vendor....

However when searching for it on the Dutch orchid society facebook page (I searched for botorch), it seems that people do shop there, and the owner is a member of the group. If you request to join the group Nov-Orchidee (assuming you have facebook) you can look for yourself. Otherwise I can screenshot some photos for you. Plants look healthy enough from what I can see!

Thank you Roberta.

Camille, if there are pics of their Phal, I would be very happy to get a screenshot. Emphasis on the deciduous ones! Dankjewel

Sorry, no Phal pics to be found! Mostly Pleuros, Draculas and the likes.

So, from what I found, he regularily gives talks at orchid societies, and usually has a stand at the annual 'big' show in Utrecht. I'm trying to revisit the show in my mind to remember what his plants were like, but am drawing a blank so far. Since he doesn't have the type of plants I usually buy, I don't linger at his stand.

Might be worth doing a small test order to see what the plants are like?

Thanks for investigating!


Edit: They replied to my inquiry about plant pics two days later, in a very unfriendly way.

It took 30 minutes to Schwerter's representative to send me details about the orchid I was interested in, and it looks fantastic.
I sure know where I will, and won't, be shopping.
