    @rss: that's not the problem. i bought U. quelchii from the same guy who said he had 2 divisions for sale. his pic had two CORRECT U. quelchii divisions. i assumed that when i got this plant i would be getting one of the divisions from the photo. i didnt. i got U. tricolor. so even if he was selling for U. geminiloba, he could always send something different out instead. i'd rather much obtain my U. geminiloba from people that i trust---like yourself and no, i'm not asking--just pointing out a hypothetical situation.

    Glider - It sounds like you haven't heard of our tribulations with U. tricolor being passed off as U. quelchii. For a laugh - here.
    yea... i havent been around much lately. that thread is very interesting. on a side note...is "DD" Mr. Darnowski? thats where these "U. quelchii" are coming from? or did i read that incorrectly? i met with him 5 years ago or so.

    thanks for all the info guys. i guess its just a waiting game now.

    EDIT: tracked down where i got this from. it was traded to me from a member here who got it from another member who is a member of the BACPS... i know several of you guys out there are part of the BACPS. anyone trade out a U. quelchii to someone in the past year or so?

    yes, DD is Darnowski, Darnowski obtained his "U. quelchii" from the guy who I got my "U. quelchii" from, Michael Drabinsky who is also a member from BACPS, who got his from Tony Gridley and Lois. Lois obtained her U. quelchii from another member---the portion given to her is legitimate--however, some sort of contamination occurred and her bowl was plagued with U. tricolor (i have seen her growing bowl personally). Michael has showed me photos of his grow space and claims that no U. tricolor grows in his grow room, and he (from the photos) does have real U. quelchii growing in his grow room. It could be possible that the batch of "U. quelchii" given to many individuals may have originated from from Lois's contaminated lot---that being said, it is very likely that anybody who obtained their "U. quelchii" from BACPS as a source has ended up with U. tricolor. This is not to say that nobody in BACPS has U. quelchii---there are members that definitely have the plant and have proven it by their flowers.

    hahaha. nobody should know the story better than me. i started the fire.
