    Outbidding you in the last seconds of an auction by the minimum amount possible. That is not luck but skill. I mildly resent your talent if you won the L. sincorana albescens this evening.

    Where was it and how much did it go for? I'm getting
    ready to seel mine and am curious what it's worth.

    It sold for 65 as a 5 bulb blooming division. Upon your decision to sell, I will buy a comparable plant for that price.

    esnipe is not that expensive and actually saves you money if you bid a lot on ebay auctions...

    That plant is actually a cute compact laelia type (like L. lucasiana) and coerulea flowers. Saw this at a nursery and was floored by its beauty.

    Did you get finally get a piece of this plant?
