    uh uh-you should read the MAF prospectus. It is bulletproof and fireproof. The only terrestrials we can really get are some very limited Dactylorhiza maculata, a few Calanthes, and some Cypripediums that NO GROWER is prepared to part with, plus a few other bits and pieces. About 90% of all terrestrial species that are not natives of NZ or AU, need to go through a 6 month quarantine program if they are plantsand need around $10,000 spent on them, and if they are seeds, you need an import permit and several thousand dollars.

    If vanilla counts, I grow a few of these. Only one is actually planted in a pot, though, the others are attached to a towel-covered shelf post. I also have two paphs and a jewel orchid. I'd love to get some cyps but they are expensive.

    They are indeed although you have at least one vendor in your state that grows and sells them, so I would suspect his would not be as traumatized going from his conditions to yours.

    wow! ya, I know the US is a real bitch about that too... they used to just gas everything then cheerfully hand you all your dead plants... I always understood the logic behind invasive pest control but coming from a place imported ship loads of used muddy tires from around the world laden with bizarre creatures, it pissed me off a bit

    Pavel, an OS member is a vendor who collects and sells these. No shipping stress as the plants would be handed off at the meeting. I am going to get one eventually.

    No, I don't grow them. I wasn't able to vote because none of the options matched my criteria. None of them are attractive to me, and a "terrestrial orchid" just sounds like an oxymoron to my very odd brain.
