    Communication is something that he does not have time for unfortunately...somebody tell him that this should be one of his priorities!
    ....other than that ...great seller, great prices, great plants, many great things...
    Best regards,

    This is really a terrible time to be shipping plants anyway, both winter and holiday time. Combine both for some really bad times. I've done plenty of business with this guy years ago and haven't had any problems, though I almost always quit ordering live plants from Oct/Nov - March it's just safer that way. Of course notifying someone of a delay is nice but... well who knows why he didn't get to it in two weeks. Let me just say it took me 5 months and proof from the bank of payment to get my copy of Taylors Utricularia book from one of the oldest and most respected botanical institutions in the world... things just happen sometimes.

    I slipped up on my "no winter ordering rule" this year and just had a big box of orchids get lost in the mail between IL and MN for almost two weeks (8 or 10 days total I think) before Xmas but by some kind of magic they arrived safe and sound and weren't frozen veggies as I'd expected they'd be. That was a close enough call for me for this year, unless someone offers me an N. edwardsiana or N. klossii but I'll drive over to get it!

    Again, appreciate the input/comments from everyone. In the end I'll do what I feel is right for me. Sure I would have liked a better reception to my emails but....

    I'm mad. You're mad.' 'How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.
    'You must be,' said the Cat, 'or you wouldn't have come here.'

    It's actually coming back from the near dead/crummy look. I think maybe the new leaf will inflate a pitcher, the first new leaf it made for me didn't even make a pitcher bud but the latest one looks like it has one.

    Interesting opinions. While 2 weeks is probably premature to start being aggravated about a late delivery (especially around holidays & in winter)(& earns you a few grinch points), being charged a restocking fee for an item that was never returned, never mailed out & therefore never really removed from stock seems to be an 'in-your-face', 'take-your-business-elsewhere' strong statement (probably worth a few holiday grinch points too).

    It's a shame. I believe that this vendor is a good guy but I know that he has really been pinched for time as he tries to make ends meet & support his family...
    All the best,
