    LOL! They do look like giant condoms.

    N. hamata must be what they use for condoms in hell. I'm sure of it!

    Wow! My thread blew up!

    Thanks for the pics of the truncataJB OrchidGuy... they were really useful.



    Do any of you know where I can get a large, healthy plant like that?



    This isn't a truncata, but I was wondering, is this about what they look like when they get REALLY big? Like a tree?



    That's the other species I'm considering, but truncata is probably still number one.

    probably.....nowhere. if it was for sale you would have to pay some MAJOR $$$$. thats if you can find one. they wount have them for sale in nurseries so you would have to buy it off another grower.

    and in that picture is N. raffelsiana. it can also grow and you climate and is equally beautiful!

    I knew it was raffelsiana, I got it off of the Wikipedia site from a search for it.

    Basically, If I want a fairly mature plant, even one half the size of the one in the pics (about what I'm really looking for), I'm going to get my own baby one and be waiting awhile, huh? lol

    Dammit, I'm impatient! LOL

    waiting "a while"? Try a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong while (to get that big)...especially if its truncata

    plants the size you want are not only hard to find, but expensive. I saw a fairly large truncata on ebay once...i think it sold for $90

    These guys are like orchids inthat respect. If you want a lrge mature plant then you are going to have to pay for it. Unless you get lucky and get a trade or someone getting rid of a collection. They take a long time to get that size. But just as orchids. The larger they are the faster they grow I assume.

    I guess I'm in a good way when it comes to plants, if I come to the wife telling her I want a $90 truncataor a $125 hamata, she doesn't even blink.


    It's not like we're rich or anything, far from it... she's just thrilled I'm not pestering her about $3800 superchargers and the like for my car!!
