Bought some very good-looking plants from these folks, and got a bonus (see below). Their prices sometimes seem a bit steep, however, to me.

My 'bonus' plant came in the form of a tiny seedling that volunteered in a pot of Mormodes sinuata from Orchids Ltd after about a year of growing and one repotting. The plant appeared as a tiny grass-like 'weed' which I allowed to grow until I moved it to its own pot. I knew it was some type of orchid, and at first thought it was a Calanthe. It bloomed last week.... Spathoglottis spicata.

Now, this is just a common little species I think, but it really is pretty. But Orchids Lmt. lists a related species, in yellow, at $75.00!!!

Make that Spathoglottis plicata, not spicata.

Oh, they also sent me a wrong plant. Though I had ordered Cycnoches haagii, they actually sent Catasetum barbatum. They insisted it was haagii and wouldn't put the order right until I sent them a photo. Then, at least, they did graciously offer to replace the plant with another species.

I have ordered three hard to find cultivars from them before on separate occassions. All three experiences were fine. They came as what they were described to be.

Purchased 2 orchids from this company. The plants are
not the healthliest orchids I have ever seen. Time will
tell how well they will perform. The orchids were expensive.
For the price I paid for them, I thought that they would look
better. The shipping and communication was ok.
