I'd like to hear any feedback too. I am currently eyeing a couple of plants from this vendor. Anyone order from SLO before? Or know someone who did? Or heard a rumor of someone who knew someone who did? Will consider psychic input if no actual buyers respond.

A few years ago, I bought some divisions from a "SLO Orchids" ... maybe the same

Divisions were ok; small (3 growths), roots were kind of sparse - they were shipped bare-root, so they may have trimmed off the old roots, leaving just new root growth.


Again, this was a few years ago, so I am not sure I remember exactly...

I will add that one of the plants I got from them was Milt. flavescens - that small 3 growth division has become a monster in just a few years!

Beth, plants are on the way. I exchanged emails with Rudy Bachmann, who was very pleasant to deal with. Details when I receive the plants.
