    That was a nice plant list. How big are the plants normally?

    In general, I have been pleased with the size and health of what I have gotten. Some things she lists have several prices depending on the size of the division. I consider my survival rate of plants from her to be better than average for imported orchids.

    Agree with Marni. We have imported from her for many years. I also notice they typically seem to be above average clones...a little darker or bolder than usually seen. Have had a couple AOS awards on plants from her.

    So I placed an order and just received an invoice from Wenqing where she asks to send an "additional check worth $100" to a specific address in California. She is already charging $50 for shipping so I don't get what is this other $100 charge for. There is no explanation on the invoice. Folks who ordered from her in the past, do you have an idea what's going on here?
    Thanks!

    I would just email her and ask. The person in California is the one who receives the bulk order and repackages for domestic shipment. Everything has always worked out fine.

    I agree with Chuck, email her. She is very responsive. I have done a number of orders and I pay for the plants (the price that was on the price list) and a shipping charge within the US. Wenqing doesn't add and percentage as some companies do to cover her shipping and CITES charges. It is a local shipment for me so USPS is $15. Express is more. Mary Gerritsen receives the order and sorts and ships.
