    I recently found out about Orquideas Amazonicas, and after checking out their catalog, I am impressed by their selection. If Google Translate and the Google exchange rate are correct, their prices are very good (especially because they are in the Peruvian currency, Sol). I believe I found the page about ordering on their website (under the tab "Como Comprar?"), but I cannot speak Spanish and wondered if anyone knows either what it says, or has had experience with them and knows how they work. Also, of course, if anyone has opinions about the quality of their plants, I would love to know what people think of them. Here's their website address- ORQUÍDEAS DEL PERÚ | Orquídeas Amazónicas del Perú | ORQUIDEASAMAZONICAS.COM | Agro Oriente Viveros, Moyobamba, San Martín - Perú
    Thanks!

    I've known Karol Villenas, the owner, for many years and have many, many plants that bought from her. Her father started the nursery in the 1950's and she has expanded and carried it on. The Masdevallia glandulosa I posted recently was from her. She has very nice plants at good prices. She reads and writes English well enough to communicate through email.

    The best way to get plants from her is to pre-order before a show. She will be in the US 3 times this year that I know of. Tamiami show in a couple weeks, San Francisco in February and then Redlands in May. Her pre-orders have closed for the first two shows, but there is plenty of time before Redlands. I tried to upload her current price list here (with USD pricing), but it is too big. Send my a private message with your email address and I'll forward it to you.

    I preordered some plants from her for Redland last year. Actually, I screwed up, and I forgot to pick up the plants from her at the show, but she promptly shipped the plants to AK. It was very easy to communicate and she was very nice. I think all the plants I received were surprisingly big, and nice quality.
