I had my 3 neps I ordered from them arrive today, but i had them sent to my moms house, Ill pick them up in the morning when I get off work and post pics showing my experience with them. One thing I can say right now is that it did take them about 4 days to actually send out the plants (something about waiting for payment to clear on Ebay, first time I've had this happen), but once shipped they arrived in 3 days from florida to michigan.

I got three plants from them, all are healthy except my Alata, it seems to be struggling a bit. At 5 bucks a piece you cant really complain about getting small plants, but yes the pics are decieving since they picture adult plants.

S. X "Dana's Delight" is S. Leucophylla X S. Willisii

S. "Scarlett Belle" is S. Leucophylla x S. Psttacina

As for the N. Alata "Lantern" - Wellsprings has it marked down as "N. Rebecca Soper?" - so, no clue, but from my google search, that seems to be what anyone could come up with.

Not so much, just like everything on ebay, you have to read the description. It does say clearly that they are in 2.5 or 3 inch pots. I know those tend to be hard to imagine but the ones I've gotten have grown super fast, though I will admit I repotted them fairly soon because I didn't care for the media. They did come nice and soaking wet and I preferred bigger pots with better and more airy media.
