    Five gallon?!?! It may work well, but I don't have that kind of room for my pygmies. I'm still learning my way around the pymies. I was thinking of trying mine outside this next summer, but maybe I'll just stick with lights.

    The only pygmy I have is D. omissa 'pink'. It hadn't produced gemmae in my care yet. It is flowering like crazy though. If you'd like seeds I can send you some. They are seed grown.

    Isn't that the one formerly known as D. erricksoniae? IIRC, that's one of few or maybe the only one that does produce viable seeds. Sure!

    Thanks! How's the P. colimensis coming along?

    I know that some need the dry, hot summer period. Some aren't that picky. Still sorting out which one need what. Probably the easiest ones to keep going are the Lake Badgerup & Lake Carburup.

    i think occidentalis and its hybrids do well in smaller pots and wetter conditions.

    Jmscott,

    I will wait until the plants finish flowering and will send you the stalks.
