    There's that big N. veitchii! I had wondered how it had ever fared after you got a cutting off them. Getting him to cut up a display plant - must have been some line you used! lol

    Some of you have heard me mention an orchid shop which has big Neps on display this cutting is from there. The N. veitchii display climbs a support post of the greenhouse, wrapping it's leaves around like it would a tree trunk. Next time I go I'll bring my camera and sneak some pics.

    I've been thinking of heading up to the shop to get a big bale of LFS for my new WIP viv but I have to make sure I have the new viv ready to go because I always come home with some plants.

    i think the line used was "I live 12 hours away and cant come in and cuss you out if it fails" which i guess has been an issue in the past cause thats the reasoning he gave....next time i hit the area ill have a pocket full of cash and try it again

    Awesome plant. I rather enjoy the background story very much.

    I feel like I was suckered into this CP thing as I first found 5 ventrata cuttings for $.25 each and actually had a pitcher so that my newbie self figured out what they were!
    Good growing, Jack

    not quite but close hell there are worse ways to kill an hour than walking around his place....the prices are high but given i live in the middle of nowhere im willing to pay a bit for the chance to hand pick a seedling or the like now and then......

    His shop is the best thing going around here too. I stay away cos I know I'll spend money if I drive over there, ya can't help it!

    I went to an orchid place way out in Independence, MN which is a huge 2 greenhouse setup but mainly they had boring stuff like a bunch of Phals and Dendros but the few obscure plants they did have (mostly Draculas and Masd. but also other weird Pleurothallids) were really cheap, only $5-15 based on pot size and these are often quite pricey "minis".

    The only problem was the guy who bought the place from the original owner, bought it all at once during a divorce auction. And the previous owner didn't keep tags on a lot of his personal stuff (now for sale) so unless it's in bloom almost all Pleurothallids look alike!

    I haven't been out there for a few years, so perhaps everything has bloomed and is labeled by now...
