    I really do love both of them. Please remember me if you ever decide to get rid of one of them or if you part with a division.

    Neyra, this species is incredibly rare in cultivation. Jon probably covered up a hooker's death for a senator to get the two pieces he has.

    No you didn't, Marni. I'm just not going to divide or divest either plant anytime soon.

    Any idea why it is so rare? If it grows quickly and easily, Oak Hill should get on it!

    Thanks folks.

    Eliana, I don't think people who have this species part with it very often. Also, it makes a remarkable specimen plant, so I don't think people are very willing to part with pieces. Finally, I'm pretty sure it's self-sterile, so flasks aren't readily available.
