I would suggest reading up on all the reviews before ordering any plants, but all said and done I would order from ebay again. I think you are taking the same risk in buying a plant from a local store as you would from ordering them from an ebay seller with a good rating.
I was going to go to a seller with large store front and order one of the cheaper plants and see if it arrives dead or alive and whatnot unless i can find a LFS near me..
