eBay is slightly evil. But like some here I do research before deciding my upper limit. I recently won a plant from seed engei that I wasn't planning on getting but then realized how great of a plant it was... and I certainly paid for it.

I imagine several vendors will be at the Santa Barbara show... wish I could go, but I have to stay home and take care of the too many plants I already have!

Yes, Dr. Lehr does allow vistors. Email him.

Here in Canada there is only one seller on Ebay. No vandaceous orchids. I have to admit to having bought from sellers in France and Thailand.

have they worked out for you? Would you need a phyto cert to get plants from the US? Maybe you need a friend in the US to help you. I can't say I have ever sent plants outside the US but you'd think our two govs would have things worked out since the two nations are so close (physically and otherwise).

The plants I have bought have all been beautiful and healthy. We are supposed to have phyto cert but that would certainly add too much to the cost of the seedlings. The seller in Thailand doesn't even seal the box, so the authorities can look at it. The last plant arrived in just 7 days. I have one more coming, then I am going to stay away from ebay for a while!

Me too! It has gotten so bad that I quickly trash the box & packing from a new plant to prevent negative comments from DH. I am putting the blame on you guys....enablers

As for eBay someone said it was the devil and it is. You can find yourself paying way too much money for a plant with a single growth during those last few minutes of the auction. I learned to bid my limit and just walk away until the auction ends.

That Fugaku that was sold recently on eBay went for too much IMHO. I ordered a nice one from Orchids Limited. Jerry Fisher called me this AM advising that I do 2 day shipping because the Neo has spikes. I was floored you would have thought I was talking to Johnny Depp

Vanda lover, you must know about Catalog-Neofinetia. Although not on ebay, looks like they have some very nice plants.

I've been looking at the pictures of that plant Jayfar. It really looks like a really nice plant. Please post a picture when it arrives!
