    Six thousand pots with ventratas hanging from the roof of a nursery I happened to stumble into. That Day I Saw (don't want to offend anyone's feelings, so please insert a deity of your choice here)

    From one geezer to another - Yeah, it was that National Geo article that did it to me, too. But not just the villosa. The carpet of ampullaria, the orangutan sipping the fluid from a sanguinea, the hanging lowii uppers. Paul Zahl was my hero.

    You youngsters who haven't seen that magazine - go to every flea market and used book sale you can until you find your very own copy. May 1964. Do it NOW!
