    Groovy Neps! Is that an Andromischus getting ready to bloom in the first pic on the left (round teardrop shaped leaves)?

    Hi There:

    nice plants indeed. i wanted to ask you a question. The plant labelled khasiana, where did you get it from?
    It looks different from the regular khasiana.

    Cheers,

    Gus

    I love your kampotiana!

    So when are you going to share those seedlings?

    All, again, thanks for all your kind words! It really means a lot to me coming from such an accomplished group of growers.

    Mr pc – I have a couple of old fish tanks that I use as terrariums to maintain high humidity for starting cuttings. As for my seedlings, I germinate them in covered containers and slowly harden them up. I have several covers for standard nursery flats, but any covered container will work. I find deli containers with a clear plastic lid work very well.

    Swords – I do not know the name of the plant next to the bicalcarata. I bought it labeled as string of pearls…

    Gus – I mislabeled this plant. It is actually, khasiana x alata that I received from a grower in Flordia.

    Clue – The ident of the kampotiana is in question. A couple of folks on other forums do not believe this is the true Kampotiana; however, that is what I purchase it as and the seller is sticking to his guns… I think it is a beautiful plant and as an additional bonus it is female. I just germinated my first two sets of home grown nep seeds, which is a pretty good feeling I must say. As for sharing the seedlings, I plan to grow them out a bit more so they can better withstand shipping and them put most of them up for trade…

    mr pc - Yes the plastic containers in the upper left corner of the 8th picther are deli containers used for seed germination. I have also been known to use pie and cookie containers, etc... I poke a couple holes in the bottem for drainage, fill them with a damp sand and peat mixture and keep them covered for at least the first six to nine months.

    Thank you very much! Now try containers similar to those ..can I use sphagnum as a substrate surface, and under a layer of peat-bark?
