I like Andy's Orchids the best for the varieties of species.
Andy's, Hoosier (RIP), Oak Hill, Forrest, Google... That's about it.
Cal Orchid, Andy's, Santa Barbara Orchid Estate, Tom-De, Forrest, Jon and trading!
Andy and Dale and another unnamed source.
Heard my alarm go off....did someone say trading??
I'll trade you an alkmaarense for... um... say 40 skins, Ron. Deal...? Or no deal...?
Thanks for the honorable mention folks.
Just an FYI, now that I am famous, I will be raising prices.
I have actually bought from very few commercial vendors, but so far I have been most satisfied with tropical orchid farm.
I already have all the Angs that anyone sells.
There is no vendor for me. Alas...
If anyone knows of a lesser-known nursery selling Angraecoids, I'd like to hear about it.
I would also like to add J&L and Parkside to the list of vendors. I love going to Parkside on a Sunday with the whole family and picking out plants from thier large selection. J&L is also a nice place and love stopping in on the way home from business trips to RI
I buy from H and R Nurseries all the time. Also Tropical Orchid Farm, Exotic Orchids of Maui.

Looked at my C. praetermissa today. Seems it likes the new glazing on the GH. 4-5 new basal off-sets.
Oooh, i remember the picture you posted on the other forum. Can i put my name on an offset? Pretty please?
Seriously, though, I really don't understand the reason for this plant's desirability. To me, it's essentially just part of a trade/gift and nothing too spectacular. Really. The flowers aren't special. The plant's not special. What is it?
Dale, it's an angraecoid thing i guess. Plus it is fairly rare in cultivation and very hard to find! My latest orchid focus is angracoids, dendrobiums, neofinetias and of course mini-catts! I have to focus, as like everyone else, i'm running out of room (space and wallet!)
Huh. I think Karen recently found C. praetermissa in a mini flask. I'll pollinate a bale of flowers next bloom and see what happens.
SBOE - Cal Orchid - Fenders Flora - Puanani Orchids
What about your worst vendor? What is the legality of announcing his name etc in a forum such as this? Do any of you want to know such info anyway?
A group of us paid over heaps of money for some 379 orchid plants in February 2006. Still haven't received them!
I like Marni Turkel as well. She's got some killer pleuro species.
I would want to know the worst verdors too, so at least I know who to avoid.
