I recently ordered plants from Bluebird Nursery, mostly chiritas and streptocarpus.
The plants arrived with shipping damage. Although this could have happened in transit, it appeared to me as though the plants were damaged when they were wrapped at the nursery.
One of the streptocarpus failed to thrive and I pitched it into the trash at the end of two weeks rather than take a chance on infecting my other plants.
After several months, one of the streps and one of the chiritas finally bloomed, neither plant is what the label says that it is. I had thought so from the beginning, because of the leaves, but waited for a bloom before passing judgement.
I won't buy from them again. It just isn't worth it. I will stick with Brennan's Orchids, Lyndon Lyons, and a few ebay sellers that have excellent reputations.
