I just ordered a N. singalana, N. diatas, N. izumiae, and a H. pulchella from Wistuba and was wondering if anyone else had ordered from them. If so, how big were the plants, how was their overall health upon receiving them, and would you order from them again. They have an awesome selection of Neps and Heli's so I'm really amped about this order! Andreas from the website said they should start shipping in early April so I have a few weeks to wait before I can post any pics.

I have never ordered from Wistuba, but the general consensus from forum-post-reviews I've read in the past is that the plants from them are generally pretty healthy.

Edit: I've also seen Wistuba appear frequently in "What online CP stores are the best?" threads.

Click these links and browse around the results to see discussions and pics of plants from Wistuba, posted by people who ordered from them:

FTC Wistuba Mentions

TF Wistuba Mentions

Second edit: After clicking the links above, click the "Show search tools" link near the bottom left of the page. You can filter the results so that it only displays recent mentions.

I ordered, but a year ago.

Frankly, small, even very small but quite healthy plants.

No, I wouldn't make that mistake again. Sorry I do not want to continue my comments ......

I agree with dimitar. The plants are quite small, but generally fairly healthy. I've ordered Heliamphora from Wistuba in the past. Unfortunately the plants aren't quite as healthy upon arrival to the US as they probably are in the EU where they aren't delayed by customs.

I lost some plants right after potting them. Wistuba was otherwise very responsive, but when I asked for a refund or replacement for the plants that were essentially dead on arrival (DOA), I didn't get a response. I even offered to place another order so they wouldn't have to pay for the cost of shipping or Phyto. Cert (only the cost of replacing the plants) and I didn't get any response. That was the only negative part of my experience.

I have never ordered, but apparently the plants are quite fresh out of tc and you should treat them as such.
