BCP isn't shipping right now, so Wistuba would be your only option. What are you looking for? Wistuba primarily sells helis and neps. BCP carries most CP genera and has a good selection of uncommon/rare pings and dews.

I'm mainly looking for helis. however I heard that wistuba plants get so banged up during shipping that it takes a year to recover.

You heard wrong. But any plant looks better after a year of establishing to its new environment

I ordered helis and neps from Wistuba last year and overall I was pleased. They where very, very large and they were relatively cheap. None came dead and all have recovered since then. His communications leave something to be desired, though. Also, after two weeks or so in the mail system, they are very damaged. My H. parva was so damaged I had to give it a buzz-cut to the soil level. But I ordered the parva as "immature pitcher" and it came with 7" mature pitchers and five or so growth points, so I'm not complaining.
