One of the more vigorous orchids that I've aquired actually came from eBay.  It had no problems riding in a priority mail box for a couple days and is has been doing quite well since I got it in 2000.  It's a Cookara Bill and the seller even threw in a "bonus orchid", a tiny Epidendrum radicans, which isn't nearly so tiny anymore, and has flowered several times.

So far, this plant has bloomed like clockwork in the late winter every year.  This past winter, it put up two flower stalks with 15 flowers each that lasted well into springtime.  It's also getting to be quite large; it just moved into an 8" pot.
