    Okay, first thing first. The following people were sent their palnts on Saturday:

    Smith
    Hartley
    Fre8train
    Hedderly
    Harris
    Wallace
    Myers
    Shummway
    Estes
    Dodds
    Schempp

    So that means I am still waiting to hear from 7 of you [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Next order of business. I used shorthand IDs on everything I sent so here is what they all are:

    For the Yucca Do plants I just used the last 2 digits of the Yucca Do code. So basically if your tube says 13 that means you got Yucca Do 1713, and 14 means Yucca Do 1714, etc, etc, etc. Note that 15 (which would be Yucca Do 1715 ) is my cultivar, P. 'Enigma' which should officailly be in CPN sooner or later.

    A.L. 14 = Alfred Lau plant #14 but pretty much everyone calls it A.L. 14

    CP2 x moc = laueana CP2 x moctezumae

    CP2 x emarg = laueana CP2 x emarginata (This is Vic Brown's clone)

    PdO = sp. Pico de Orizaba

    Poto = potosiensis (this is the BestCP clone)

    Titan = cv. 'Titan'

    Pir = cv. 'Pirouette'

    2/4 = hemiepiphytica site 2 #4 (this is the type location)

    mor alba = moranensis alba

    Pau Ed = sp. Pauchuca (Ed Read clone)


    I am pretty sure those are all the ones I sent out but if you get something not on the list then please PM me.

    Cheers

    Once again Pyro you do the community proud! Man, I remember back when we had few plants and dreamed of the time when exchanges like this would be possible. That was just a couple of years ago! Imagine where things will be 5 years from now! I picture a time when a persons collection will only be space limited, not financially dependent. If you have space and desire, you get the plants. If you have demonstrated the skills, you get the rare stuff.

    So, thanks my friend for setting such a fine example. Offers like yours make my day.

    Now, all you guys getting the plants Pyro is sending, do your best to multiply and share them in turn! If we have 5 Pyros out there, the rate of increase in plant collections will go through the roof!

    question. whats my best bet on getting these lil guys started? i was thinking of putting the pots in a ziplock for a couple weeks or so. will they get enough light under florecents through the bag? sitting them in a window will prolly bake them. thats about the only way i can come up with. they are about 1/4 to 1/8 the size of the smallest pings ive ever started.

    All of these guys were sitting in typical pots unprotected in my sunroom getting temps upto 95 and down to 55. I grow in a mostly crushed coral mix but pretty much any Mexi-Ping mix will work, as a suggestion go 3:1:1 perlite:vermic:peat and you should be fine. Set the plants right side up on the media and put them on the tray system. They should take off in no time.

    Or if you like top the media with milled sphag, place the plants on that and water once then stick them in a bag under fluorescents, that is basically how I started all of them as cuttings.

    William,

    Thanks for the kind words. Yes I do remember those days and I am very happy to see how the community has evolved since then. I like doing my small part to spread the joy.
