    I stumbled upon them on here or social meeds, but what's the deal with them? I never see their name as an attendee at US orchid shows. Do they grow in the mountains in the Philippines? Quite the catalog of cool growing oxyglossum/calyptrochilus under them. Stuff I'd like to see here.

    They do not vend US shows, and I believe they may be in Malaysia.

    Yes, rather sad. I follow them on Instagram and am always marveling at the incredible plants they have. I looked a little and didn't see anything about them in the U.S. so I assumed they don't ship to U.S. addresses. Too bad!

    They have tons of cool things that aren't found here in the USA. They do ship here, but you're lucky if anyone ever replies to messages. I had spoken with one of the owners who sent me pictures of everything I wanted and was looking into postage fees, then stopped replying to messages. They also want $350 for CITES and phyto which I think is crazy unless you're ordering lots of plants.

    I believe the patriarch of the company passed away a few years ago and it is now being run by his children. They will do imports IIRC, but I have never done so.
