well Jon? I can see you thinking.
I have nothing to say. You killed a gift. It's like drinking another man's beer. You just don't do it.
I know the feeling. It is almost as bad as killing a gift where you got the bigger half. Almost
Like you've never killed a plant.
Oh, gees! It hurts me to see you both fight like girlsoke:
I've killed many plants, Marni. Just not ones that were gifted to me. I take special care not to kill those. Unless it's a mushy little 3 backbulb division that some claims was "the larger half". Then, well, I suppose I didn't really kill it.
I want it, but can't grow it....
dude, do I need to bust out the picture? to remind you?
You aren't allowed to reply. I think Karen just whacked you off.
Nice. I didn't even have to buy her a drink.
Either you haven't been growing very long or hardly anyone gives you anything. Personally I can kill orchids regardless of how I got them.
Marni, I think it is a little from column A and a little from column B.
I've been growing about 8 years, Marni. While not as long as some of our "Senior Members", I think it's a decent length of time. Sure, I've killed a few plants that were given to me, but none of them were as awesome as lepanthes felis.
HAH! Dead is dead....
( Not that I've killed any...)
oh shit Jon. If only that were true.
I only get really upset with myself when it is the only known plant in cultivation and I really like it. Otherwise, it is a part of growing orchids. Last summer a friend really wanted a piece of Dendrobium cyanocentrum. I gave him my backup piece. It was dead in 6 weeks. It doesn't make him a bad person or a bad grower, the plant just died. It also doesn't mean I wouldn't give him another piece when I have it. But I'll keep a back up piece first.
Sheesh - did I come late to this party or what......
Nice pics Marni. I especially like the green bunny ears!
