Far far longer than 3 years. One of my first eBay purchases was from orchidspeed over 8 years ago, and they are still using the same photos and descriptions from that time. It saves me a lot of time because I recognize the photos and never have to look at those listings EVER. If they were offering the exact plant I wanted most at that moment for 5 cents, I wouldn't waste the nickel.Orchidspeed has been listing some of the exact same plants for going on three years now. I feel kind of bad for him/her.
:rollhappy: I heard the same thing! :rollhappy:There is this new one catskillmountainorchids here is a link.
He don't list alot but I heard he was pretty good!! :rollhappy: :evil:Tom
I know Thanh from springwaterorchids buys some paphs from Terry at Pine Ridge Orchids, I've seen him there. But he doesn't seem to be selling as many paphs as he used to these days.I'm pretty sure that OrchidTN, like many other ebayers including Thanh, are purchasing wholesale from places like Pine Ridge Orchids, Krull Smith, and OZ and are re-selling, so that the mix you are getting probably originated with the previous grower and not OrchidTN.
Did he move? I never realized he was in Melbourne I thought he was closer to Ft Lauderdale. Yeah he is open about where the plants come from. My info may be outdated. I know about 2 years ago alot of paph were from Pine Ridge, but he was selling alot of paphs back then. Now he's expanded to a whole bunch of different genera.Thanh gets a lot of his paphs from Krull-Smith, and is quite open about which plants come from them.
Florida is too hot! It got to 80 here today and I thought I would die! :sob:
:rollhappy::rollhappy::rollhappy:Dude, Melbourne is right on the Atlantic. Some of the best surf in FL and always a nice ocean breeze. 80 in Manhattan is WAY different than 80 in Melbourne. -Ernie
