There have been many "Disappointed in Ebay" threads, so I'd like to share a good Ebay source. Mad Happenings has a physical location near me, so I made an appointment with the guy and saw all of his plants. They are outstanding! All of his orchids are meticulously cared for but grown in natural concepts. None of them have that commercial, "forced" look. They are all happily exploring their various mounts, everything from coconut husks to cork to pecky cypress boards to little burlap satchels. Very creative! Many interesting orchids, including the Catasetum "Black Orchid." I bought the yellow variety, beautiful plant. He's got a stunning variety of Vandas, with roots cascading down. I spent $105 (but I actually gave him $120, he was so sweet and wonderful) and I got around 30 Tillandsias (most with 3-4 pups, plus a rare one I've never seen before), 5 dwarf and mini varieties of bromeliads (all with more than 2 pups), two Catasetums (very big!), a Dendro keiki (with 6-inch roots!?) and a mature Brasseovala. He's very kind and knowledgeable but quiet about it. Not a know-it-all. I can tell he is truly in love with his plants. I promise it's all good, healthy stuff. I saw it all in person. His ebay stuff doesn't reflect all the plants he has...I'd email or call him if you want something else. He's got a ton of different orchids.
