    This is a community pot of Bletilla striata seedlings that's an inexpensive way to establish a planting of these beautiful hardy orchids. I think there are 15-20 seedlings in the pot, but it's hard to say because they keep growing more bulbs. There's a wide range of sizes and the largest plants are ~8". They're hardy here in CT and here's what the Missouri Botanical Garden's site says about the species -http://www.mobot.org/gardeninghelp/p....asp?code=B720. The pod parent is an 'Alba' but it was a spontaneous pollination among a number of white and pink plants. I don't know the genetics and can't predict what percent will be white. The bidding start at $5 and I'll pay for shipping when it sells for more than $16.

    All proofs inevitably lead to propositions that have no proof. All things are known because we want to believe in them.
