i don't know if this qualifies, but i like to look at agristarts plants - they are wholesalers, but i can at least look at new plants for fun, if not actually find them yet anywhere.
nice colo/alos and caladiums too.

then i found this hawaiian importer - they also have an office in thailand - so there's a lot of thai imports. and again they are whole-salers.
fantastic pink thai ags in the works.

just stumbled on this site: it's puerto rican. so they say they ship USPS to mainland US - no customs/no usda inspection. the plants are checked locally prior to shipment at usda station. they have a lot of unusual tropicals. they have some nice alos (and many other tropicals like hibiscus/plums/adeniums...) they say they ship from asia/thailand and acclimatize plants 1st in PR due to the fact that some plants do not do well when xferred direct to americas from asia.
this can be a good source for new imports from asia, especially for florida growers, since it's less to ship close. i wonder if anybody here ever considered shipping from puerto rico or even had any experience doing it?
the site works funny: you need to position the cursor just so until you see 'the pointing finger' - otherwise the plant tab does not load the page.

Here's a review on DG. Nothing really recent but it's worth looking at.

I think I would be very cautious about ordering from them tho.
