    Hi Pipolz,

    Ok, I had a non working mood evening, so I also picked some backstage pictures, that didn't make it to my website yet.
    Enjoy your meal!

    Hi Volker:

    Nice to see your plants again. I notice that you mostly have either lowlands or intermediate hybrids. What has been your experience with highlands?. Is it possible to grow these in Manila?

    Hi Gus,
    I just moved a few years ago to the Philippines and played around with some lowlanders to test conditions - just being relaxed (for some reason I find rafflesianas anyway nicer than rajahs) and careful about getting more demanding plants. Due to dry winds it wasn't as easy as I thought, so I had to setup a greenhouse with shade cloth, plastic walls and irrigation system. Now everything seems fine and I am starting with more highlanders, which are doing very fine even though small.
    Check herefor my highlanders.

    Hi Julian,
    Thanks. I agree that there are faster growing plants than raffs, although it seems that the 'Sandakan'/alata and especially 'Johore' grows faster than than the 'red squat' and 'giant'. Or am I dreaming? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
