Healthy, clean plants, perfectly packed. TOF has some very choice and unusual species. E-mails answered promptly.
A very positive experience.

I just received my order last week, and once again, the plants are great! I usually phone in my order, and I've always had a wonderfully helpful person help me choose plants, or if it's one they are out of, to find a substitution. Sometimes the plants need repotting, but I automatically repot when I receive plants so that they are all in one media, and I have an exact potting date for the next repotting. Never have they been in a state of rotten roots-- they are always healthy. In this order, two of the plants were actually much bigger than advertised, one of which was in bloom as well! The others were all the sizes advertised, and very, very healthy. The bonus plant they add in is always a pleasant surprise!

I've ordered from them several times with never a problem. The plants always arrive very large and healthy. The packaging has always been well done, and FedEx delivery has always been super fast. I've mail-ordered orchids from other nurseries before, and though I've been happy with them too, I don't think any of them compared in the size of the plants.
I have placed numerous orders with TOF. A great selection of species, many of which are hard to find. Everything has been "as advertised" or better, well grown healthy plants. The freebie is always a treat. Highly recommended.
In our first order with this company in over a year, we were very frustrated with the plants we received. Many of the plants arrived with almost no potting media and fell out of the pots during unpacking. The plants were much better attached to the paper used to stuff the sleeves than they were to their pots. .The plants did not appear to have been repotted recently, so why they arrived this way was is a mystery. Three of the plants developed anthracnose leaf spot in our dry quarantine area less than 24 hours after arrival.

I've ordered from them multiple times and love their selection and plants. Service is always prompt and packaging is great. Mostly species growing intermediate or on the cooler side of intermediate.
