    Thanks for all the publicity..Jon..

    When plants are shipped, they usually take about 1 week to reach your country and after it has arrived in your country, USDA will takes some time to inspect and process your Parcel.

    Plants that you've purchased and destroyed was refunded its full value so are other plants that you've ordered but did not received due to unavailability.

    It took 3 weeks to resolve becaused you insisted on going through Paypal's claims. Paypal took time to ensure you've received your items and you did.

    I was unable to send your order in time as i have a Horticultural show to attend and i informed you about it and you continued to go through with paypal's claims that froze my account until your issue was resolved.

    Please provide evidence or proof for the plants that you claimed not received, how do you expect me to refund you when you cannot proof that?

    If you've proven your case, you've should have gotten the refund long long time ago.

    Anyway, you can keep this thread alive, for it probabily inform more people about Asiatic Green and also it helps to let people know what kind of person you truely are.

    As for Tommy's case, I feel sorry that some of the plants did not meet his expectation while many of my other plants did. I am disappointed that he only posted photos of those that did not meet his expectations, he should have posted the very nice vandas that i've sent him. If he still wishes to get replacements, i would be willing to offer him even though I am going against my Terms of Purchase stated clearly on my website.

    All the best to people reading about Asiatic Green, many claims here is untrue, and you have to see the full picture before making a judgement.

    Happy New Year 2010! Great Forum by the way...

    Those are real nice, Amos, but you're selling plants, not flowers. I saw the plants you sent Jon shortly after they arrived. I would be too embarrassed to give someone plants like that, let alone bill them.

    Amos, I have nothing against your business at all. I looked at your eBay offerings and it struck me that although you are asking more than premium price for the ones you have listed, there is not an actual plant picture of any of them. I would be curious as to why you have decided to do this. I can't imagine anyone purchasing these plant without knowing what they look like.

    I no longer have an import permit so I won't be obtaining plants from anyone where the plants have to be shipped to me directly via customs. It just takes too long and there are always many fatalities. There are all kinds of red flags that come up with your eBay listings, not the least that you only have 25 feedbacks and many of them are purchases. The other is you have changed usernames. We have to depend on first hand knowledge. I have heard good things about you but I have also heard many bad things about the plants you have sent. I see your listings and I must say I would not buy from you as an eBay seller.

    I have often visited you site and I love your pictures.

    I've made my point, Amos. The facts of the case do not change because of a 6-month wait.

    I am glad you like our site Amos.

    as you have probably noticed, we keep this forum free of advertisements. I would appreciate it if you would help us keep it that way. I know you have a business to run, and I can appreciate you wanting to get the word out, but this is not a place for free advertisements.

    I would appreciate it if you would remove your pictures from this any any thread that you are trying to sell plants in. I will check back tomorrow to see if you have done so, and if not I will help you out by doing it for you.

    That being said, I hope you do participate in the forum by posting pictures of your blooming plants. And if you would like to sell or trade with the forum people then please take a look at our for trade/sell section, and specifically this thread: http://www.orchidsinteractive.com/showthread.php?t=386

    Thanks Amos. I hope you enjoy the forum!

    Way to go, Karen. Do we get to vote? I don't have to think very long which way I'd go.

    Why Ban me, isn't this a free forum where people can share their views and photos?

    What's wrong with this forum? If you can't share photos, what fun is there?

    And it's so negative here, how do you expect people to like this forum?

    Make this forum a more free place to chat and dont restrict this and that... isn't America a Free nation? Keep it that way, it's good.

    This is an extremely open orchid forum. In fact, this is without a doubt the least moderated orchid forum on the net. However, we do have a few rules. They are not difficult, so please, try to honor them.

    I believe you misunderstood me. Please do share your photos, contribute to discussions on culture, or just chat. What you cant do is come here for some free advertising. That will not be tolerated. Sorry. This is not open for discussion.

    Forrest & Jon,
    Your website, your rules.
    What ever "you" choose to do, is OK with me.

    Please remove any links to your site from OI, Amos. Unauthorized advertising on OI is spam, and that is not permitted here.

    Dear all, dear Amos

    You are right that all plants did not look terrible. But many did.
    If you sincere in your post and you want to make a men’s to restore some of your credibility, I will be more the happy.

    I bought plants together with a lady from Norway and some of her plants are dead now, RIP. But I don't know the full status of her plants.

    Some of my plants are doing fine others are struggling. The Vanda hastifera died shortly after it arrived.

    I know Vandas and how to grow the so I will probably get most of them to grow. But one or two more is in critical condition.

    The thing that I got most upset with was that you mailed me pictures of nice fine plants of Vanda luzonica and ustii. The two plants that I wanted the most. The plants should be 2-3 ft. high with fine leaves and a good root system. But I got small plants in a very bad condition. Also the dearie was in a pore shape.

    If you now want to make it up to me I would be more the happy and I promise to post I here if you do.

    I have taken some pictures of how the plants look now so that you can see for yourself.
    I hope that it's ok!

    Your access to Orchids Interactive has been removed. Spam is not tolerated. You knew the rules, and you chose to ignore them.

    I think it is safe to say that Amos is a slow learner.;)

    I saw the pictures late last night, before they were removed. There was not a single photo of an Ang. The best word to describe them would be...tedious.
