I have only bought from Hausemannís since Iím from Joliet, Iím only 30-35 mins from them. And Iíve purchased from two eBay sellers and I received beautiful plants. So I guess I was expecting that quality plants. Hereís a pic of what I received.

All of the orchids I received were dehydrated. Most them had some sort of fungal or bacterial rot. Some on the leaves and some on the stem. I received a little Phal. Described as blooming size but it was as small as my hand. So not sure about that one. I think the only good one I received was a Miltassia & that was from the Hawaiian relieve thing there were doing.

I'm sorry that you have had this kind of experience. I've been there with a different vendor and it is highly discouraging, especially when there customer service isn't up to par.

I would be upset if I received plants in that condition. I don't expect perfect, but I have seen better plants in the clearance section at my local Home Depot than what you received from Seattle Orchid. IMO, most of those plants are rehab plants and you definitely should have received a refund in FULL including ALL shipping charges. I would consider reaching out again to let them know a credit for shipping is not acceptable.
