    I'm working on pre-orders for Redland (I think the deadlines for the Brazilian vendors are approaching quickly), and there are a couple vendors who never respond to email (in the last 3 years or so). I'm wondering if the contact info listed in the redland vendor list is wrong. If any of you have communicated with the following vendors, I'd like to know how you managed to get them respond. I'm guessing that some of them may not speak English, so they may not reply. Or do they not take pre-order? Also if it is not worth communicating (e.g. low quality), I'd like to hear any experiences of the following vendors.

    Best of Thai Orchids
    Clori Orquideas, Argentina
    Joseph Wu Orchids, Taiwan
    Orquideas Amazonicas - Peru
    Popow Orchids - Germany
    Orquifollajes Orchid Growers - Colombia

    I too have tried to contact Popow with no luck. Not familiar with the others Naoki, sorry.
    It has been my experience, albeit limited, that many in the orchid world are piss-poor communicators at all levels unfortunately. I have an ever growing list of vendors whom I refuse to do business with because they do not respond, and don't get me started on orchid societies responding!!!!!!

    Troy,
    I belong to the NW Orchid Society. Not sure what you mean by "try" them?

    Thanks JC.

    Thanks, Phragper. Interesting, he never reply to my email. I did eventually get reply from Popow (using the email provided by JC) and Orquideas Amazonicas, and placed pre-orders. It's my first time attending this show physically, and I'm excited!

    I'll try with my brand-new cameras (I actually bought 2 cameras for this trip)! Did you manage to place pre-order to FEA, Zach? My largest pre-order is from them this time. Lots of interesting Bulbo for me! I also hope that he will be able to bring D. dekockii this time.

    Naoki, you're in for an exciting weekend at Redland. Keep
    your head on straight. You can spend more money than
    you ever dreamed you'd spend and just be about half way
    through the show. Have a GREAT time!

    Visit to redland

    Abax has it right. You will spend Each time I went I took more money than before. But got to see more orchids than ever before. Since I don't live in Florida would pack my purchases and then take them to the ups store and ship home. For me there isn't a better place to buy orchids. Lots and lots of orchids
