Re: seed sources

I would like to add to this as well.  I've purchased quite a few orchids on
ebay, both seedlings, and blooming size stud divisions of some pretty rare
orchids.  Majority of the sellers that I dealt with, are orchid breeders and
some are actual orchid collectors selling either a no longer desirable
plant, or making room for a new one.  In some of these cases, I went on to
make a good contact with these people and was able to request an orchid that
they don't normally carry, and they were able to get it for me!  I'd say
that's good customer service.

I never purchased seeds from ebay.  But I don't see a reason as to why one
wouldn't, particularly if the source is reputable.
