Has anyone ordered from this site before?
Trustworthy?
Reliable?
They have a few things I'm interested in, but the prices are spot on with other suppliers for some items, but way low for other items.

I second Nepenther026. I keep being tempted by them, but haven't followed though so far. Then again, starting come cp's from seeds can be difficult. I've had some bad experiences with some US based seed cp seed vendors with more common varieties, so more exotic varieties make me more nervous. However, if they are the only source of what you are looking for, what other option do you have? Just be cautious if you try them and only make small purchases until you get experience with them. You might also approach them to get information about the seed, such as how long and how stored, before you make a purchase.

Good luck and please let us know how you do with them.

Thanks for your input and the link. It seems to be a mixed outcome, leaning more toward negative. Possibly a mixture of poor storage, less than fresh seed, and potentially bad husbandry.
It is nice that the few successes reported are for the species listed.
