Well, I think most know that no one usually just collects one specific
family or species of plants. Usually while collecting we find other things
that interest us. One I know most run into is orchids which is such a large
family. I find that I like the following species but I also find that hardly
anyone has them available or to trade. If they are available they are
usually very costly. Anyone out there growing these orchids or know were i
may get a some from?
bulbophyllums, cirrhopetalum, pleurothallis, stelis, restrepia, lepanthes

Brian,

I only grow a few odd species among the genera you mention, but by
coincidence I have been searching for several other orchids over the last
few weeks, and while digging through the Internet orchid mall
(www.orchidmall.com) I noticed a number of sellers of several of those
groups.

Lepanthes calodictyon in particular in that genus is on my buy list; I saw
several sources, mostly in the $25-30 range.

I'd bet someone on the list knows some good vendors directly.

(Since the topic has come up, if anyone knows a source for Habenaria
carnea, Dendrobium cuthbertsonii, or some of the Pterostylis - whose
flowers at first glance look a lot like an arisaema - I'd appreciate a
note.)

Steve
