    So you bought a noid and hope for the best, right?:D
    I wish I could just buy four plants at big shows. Normally I get out of control...

    yea, well they had a spent flower on one of them and a picture. It was capillipes in form but yellow.


    I guess I have just gotten picky. Good for the pocket book I guess.

    I got some nice plants. Nothing extraordinary though. I'm not convinced "bulbo rhodoleucum" really is, though. The spent flower is more like bulbo pseudotrias.

    Angela, I did see several vendors selling phals, but to be honest I didnt pay attention to them very much because they are not my thing. Perhaps when Marni gets back she might have paid better attention than me.

    I do Angela. But I dont grow them. Maybe someday when I have a larger grow area I will get a few but for now I will just have to live vicariously through those that do.

    Angela, I still have that lueddemanniana you sent me a while back. It has finally recovered from a near death experience moving from Florida to Austin.

    Has the leudd. bloomed for you, Chris? At least in my gh conditions, leudd. isn't
    the easiest to bloom although it grows well. The "supposedly" easy ones are the hardest
    for me to bloom and the hard ones are the easiest...bassakward. Donno why.

    That's who it was, Chris. Thanks Forrest, I couldn't remember which vendor that was.
