    A question tony

    What do you do with all the really big plants that you have there? Are they part of your private collection, or do you actually sell them?

    EDIT: I forgot to ask this too: How long have you had some of the larger plants that you have?


    BTW: Great place you have there! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] If you ever plan to move to somewhere warmer, I'll help you pack!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Nep G thanks for sharing these awesome photos. Tony, your plants look great, very clean and well done. I can't imagine what such a scale operation must be like, and then to have such success! That N. hamata is the finest specimen I have ever seen, just stunning. It actually makes my hands sweat looking at it, and this hasn't happened since I saw the diamond necklaces at the Smithsonian! Congratulations, and thanks again for the visual experience.

    Gracilis - Woo Hoo indeed! Absolutely awesome! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] Thanks for posting these. What incredibly healthy looking plants, and that dangerous looking N. hamata, it's a wonder you dare put your hand so close to it! Let's hope it's a female so that one day you can cross it with your N. clipeata!

    Tony, I see two big fans and what appears to be a ceiling fan too. Are they to do with maintaining even temperatures or do you find that some plants simply grow better if the air isn't stagnant?

    And hey, there's label saying "Par O Bek Orchids, but not a lot of orchids to be seen! Do you just grow a few orchids as 'companion plants' for your Neps? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    You know what's funny.. first thing that comes to mind when I see the pics..

    Holy smokes I need some Rogaine!

    Joel yes I sometimes sell larger plants.. They don't turn up on the pricelist often because of very limited availability. Many of my larger plants were grown from small TC seedlings when I was growing them as a hobby, and are part of what you call my collection. Some were purchased as mature plants and cuttings.

    Tamlin.. N. hamata will do that to you. Yep you got the fever hehe

    Rob.. The ceiling fan was off and runs mostly during the Spring, Summer, Fall. It only provides minor air movement. The two red fans are exhaust fans. In opposite corners of the greenhouse (one is visible on the right side) are two fans for keeping air moving in a circular motion. And there is a heater located at each end which blows toward the center. Air movement is usually fairly brisk around the clock. I would be interested to hear what kind of air movement your plants get. Do you find some do better in a more stagnant environment? This is something I have not really experimented much with yet.

    As for the name.. I didn't have the heart to change it after 20 years of orchid growing. I still have some but they are mostly for fun now.

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
