What is O.G.R.E.S. or Ogres?


O.G.R.E.S. is the Orchid Growers Rating and Evaluation System. It is a website devoted to listing and rating orchid sources. It lists the over all ratings, how many people have rated it, the website (if any) and links directly to the company. Ebay sellers are also included.

While the system has problems, you can "flame" a grower by posting many of the same complaints, and often people don't post when they have a good experience only with a bad one, it is a place to start and gives links to many growers.

Unfortunately, as of 2005, OGRES has been discontinued...I do not know if it is going to be put back up, but I am keeping this here in the event that it does resurface.
