Title: Re: [Aroid-l] Ecuagenera List

Usually Ecuagenera has a set price list. Nothing wrong with a group order. There may be a surcharge for the international shipping on individual orders and there may not be. You would have to ask. Ron Kaufman does this all the time with Ecugenera and is there any reason one would not use him. He knows the guys from Ecuagenera well and certainly does this for many people especially at the time of shows. There are a bunch of orchid shows coming up in the spring and Ecuagenera will be sending stuff in at those times and Ron could do the coordination for all of you. Anyway, it certainly is the choice of all involved. If all of the plants go to one person there is that much time longer in the shipping delivery time. I think we might all agree the quickest delivery, the better.


I wish you all the best of luck with your new plants.

Hi All,

I meant to post and get this back on track if enough people are interested – looks like maybe 5 – 6.

Just need to clear up a little confusion.  Alison asks Why a group order, but Ron suggests that group orders would get a better price

It would be great if Ron would be willing to do this for us.  I’ll make a list of the items in which I’m interested and send it to him.  If it happens, wonderful, but if not, so be it.  One question for Ron.  If you can do this, could we pay by PayPal?

Hi All,
     I place group orders from Ecuagenera several times a year and am very familiar with their aroid material.  If there's sufficient interest, I'd be happy to coordinate an order and distribute plants to people.  Because I've been coordinating orders with Ecuagenera for a number of years and have visited their nurseries, traveled with them in the field to view aroids, etc., they provide us (the group) with a discount that offsets the cost of transporting the plants from Ecuador to the U.S.  In other words, the group would pay list price + domestic shipping costs (not too high, typically; aroids are relatively light) rather than list price plus the transportation costs from Ecuador (typically $4+ per plant) and domestic shipping.

Hi Conrad, Don and All,
Why would you place a group order?  They bring everything
through and mail the orders.
As an importer - I love this - it's much faster and easier, and the
sender doesn't have to get phyto certificates on several different
orders - just the one they import.
