    These guys ROCK.

    I ordered a $18 phrag seedling - Magdalene Rose 'Mother' 4N x besseae 'Paute'
    advertised as 2-4" and set to bloom in several years. I got, for that price, a 25" "seedling" in spike. :)

    This is not unusual for Joan and Mark. I'd never hesitate to recommend these guys. Monster plants for excellent prices.

    Thanks Joan!!

    I'm not familiar with them. Do they have a website?

    Thats a pretty slick web site. Probably one of the best I've seen, orchid vendor wise.

    I should add that in the past, I have asked if they had other plants available than those listed on their web site and they usually come through for me.

    This is the first Phrag I have bought from them. I'll try to take a photo tonight. I was very impressed.

    Thanks for the tip on the site. I just placed an order with Mark (like I need more plants:rolleyes: ). Both he and Joan were very helpful. I'm looking forward to receiving the order next week.:)

    I got a flask of the barbigerum 'Joan' HCC/AOS x self plus a few divisions. I'll post more when they arrive.

    I'm with Tadd, the Varvarra x fairrieanum flask looks real interesting, too.

    I got my order from Mark and Joan at Orchidaceae. Thanks for enabling me,again, Heather.:poke: The plants were in absolutely great shape! Here's my haul:
    1. Compot of Paph barbigerum 'Joan' HCC/AOS x self - Got a compot instead of a flask because Mark noticed my angst about shipping flasks. Nice healthy seedlings.
    Plus the following divisions
    2. Paph barbigerum 'Joan' HCC/AOS in bud!

    3. Paph Betty Bracy 'Springtime' AM/AOS - Big Division

    4. Paph Swallow 'Karyn' AM/AOS

    5. Paph Harbur 'Perfection' HCC/AOS Mine is still small, so I got this one for insurance. One of my favoroite complex Paphs.

    6. Paph Fox Creek 'Maybrook' HCC/AOS

    All these were at fair, reasonable prices and then they throw in two more special plants to boot!
