Default succulents & orchids

Does anyone have any recommendations for good places to get succulents (not spikey cactus), orchids (other than Phalaenopsis) and air plants?

Any recommended eBay or other online shops (not Amazon). Or garden centre chains that are recommended for good healthy plants?

Also any good books - not dreary 1000 page science books. I'm more interested in stuff written for human beings to read.

Note these will be 100% house plants and not added to any animal enclosures.

Thanks

I have bought a few recently, went for a set of 3 humid airplants and some Spanish Moss. All came well packaged and labelled.


They are all currently doing well in a grow out tank prior to being installed in a pdf viv


Will certainly buy more in the future, just went with a small initial order as a tester.

Iver Flower land often have a good selection of airplants, and various orchids. They do have succulents too sometimes, and carnivorous plants. They had some Nepenthes recently with HUGE cups.
