Love the ones who communicate.
Andy's calls a few weeks after you received your order to see if you have questions. I'm always in shock!!

I've purchased a number of orchids from Dave Johnston, of Jewell Orchids http://www.jewellorchids.com. He sells the orchids you see on his web site. He's also a "Top Seller" on ebay. Good quality, vigorous plants. If you want something larger or spiking and can pay a little more, it's worth a phone call or email.

A new experience, for me, is with Marble Branch Farms http://www.marblebranchfarms.com/. Gary Collier and Mark Reinke are very active in the Atlanta Orchid Society. They moved to S.C. and the country a few years ago and are establishing their greenhouse. Their specialty is hybridizing miniature Catts. They've got some nice species too. They are so enthusiastic and eager to please. I'm looking forward to getting to know them better.

Nice sellers. Like what they sell. Thanks Laurel!!
P.S. You should get Den. Nora Takunaga (spelled wrong on their website)! See Orchid Recommendations, tried and True http://cubits.org/orchids/thread/view/2934/; it's my #1 recommendation.

I really enjoy going to Silva Orchids. They have lots of healthy Orchids to pick from. These people grow their own Orchids, they don't import. And nothing is potted up in Sphagnum!

Orchids Limited. I love these sellers and have bought many great orchids from them. Although their prices are higher than ebay, this is a class operation and I have often been amazed at what arrives from them. Great well established plants. I often ask Jason, through e-mails or his Twitter page, specific information about their Japanese and Asian orchids and get great responses back. This is a great place! http://www.orchidweb.com/

I think I must have bought the last Dendrobium Nora Tokunaga from Marble Branch Farms. Don't see it listed anymore. See how well we listen to your recommendations Kathy?

After reading about Dendrobiums, I think they might be the ones I'll like the best. Anything that blooms in the winter makes me so happy.

Has anybody dealt with Parkside Orchids? They were the only place I could find that had Clowesia Jumbo Grace listed. I don't take Martha Stewart's advice when it's going to cost me money. Hilarious!
