    New plants... OMG

    I just got my EP order in today and I am sooo stoked. I also got some other plants in trades, including my favorite plant of all time...

    (Spectabilis x Talangensis) x (Northiana x Veitchii) : This one has an amazing peristome and beautiful coloration. It is a real winner.


    Carunculata (Var. Robusta) x Ventricosa 'Squat'


    Izumeae x Trusmadiensis


    (Spathulata x Aristo) x (Lowii x Ventricosa)


    I also got a Spectabilis x (Lowii x Ventricosa) but I think I left it at Ludwig's house. I was so tired and overwhelmed by all the plants that I forgot about this sweet little plant. It kind of looks like a darker, nicer Spec x Ventricosa though. The Lowii should hopefully come out as it gets older.

    And my favorite plant of all time, that I feel so lucky to have and have undying gratitude for Srduggins for, Spectabilis x Veitchii:




    SOOO STOKED lol. EP's plants are always great, and their hybrids only get better with time.

    Yeah that last one is amazing. Glad you're happy with what you got. I'm still waiting for my plant to come in. I think I might poop my pants when I finally get it though. I got a [(thorelii x rafflesiana - Singapore) x (inermis x talangensis)].

    <----- Jealous

    I'm a huge fan of Spectabilis crosses, especially yours now.

    Very very nice. I only wish EP would sell species again, especially highlanders. BTW...I recognise that excitement. No matter how old you, how experienced you are, the excitement level at getting new plants in this hobby is universal. ;D Congratulations Daniel. They look tops. Keep us updated on that izumiae x trusmadiensis, it might be one of those diamonds in the rough.

    Thanks for the compliments everyone .

    I don't personally use Superthrive very much (though I do have a bottle). That pic was taken at Srduggins' house. I try to use some when taking cuttings, but that's it. He puts a little in his spray bottles and sprays down the plants when they first come in. His plants look wonderful, so I think I may have to emulate him.

    Edit: Oh yeah Ron, your plant looks pretty nice . Perhaps I can send that Amp with the EP plant to save on some shipping.

    Fantastic plants. I really shouldn't have clicked on this thread, as the Nep bug is biting me again, and I'm thinking I'll add to my collection soon. Your pics only made it worse!
