Hi all,

I'm not sure if I'm in the right section of the board, but I just want to give everyone a heads up to beware of this vendor in Thailand. I have had 2 large orders pending with him for nearly 6 months and his excuses for not shipping them are just garbage. It's pretty clear he has no intention of ever doing so. I just visited another orchid forum and others have had similar experiences. BEWARE!

Had a similar experience with the same vendor about a year ago
The site looked legit, but ultimately kicked myself for being so naive.

Didn't wait 6 months, and (with some difficulty) managed to cancel the order.

Makes me appreciate the great US orchid sellers and the great folks here on the forum!

Agreed! I'll stick to domestic now whenever possible. CITES and phyto is a pain anyway.

I must say that the 2 initial orders I placed with him were sent immediately and the plants were really good. I thought I had a new favorite vendor. I don't know what happened but, based on reviews elsewhere and from my own recent experiences something has definitely gone wonky at Tom Orchid.

I'm not rescinding my previous warning yet, but in fairness I am updating it to advise that the vendor has contacted me regarding the pending orders. He has advised that the orders will ship in March, which is an awfully long time for orders placed in June and July. But I am prepared to wait. I'll update again in March. We shall see......
