    Nice job Amori!

    I have to let you all know that Amori has been volunteering with the FMG CP collection for about a year and a half. He is awsome! Amori truly has the addiction. And he helps make these plants look great. I trust very few people with the care of the collection and Amori's help is fantastic.

    Nice Job Buddy.

    Amori and Steve,
    Someone once said(I think it was Steven Stewert?) that when he was growing several plants of the same species, that they often all flowered at the same time(though they may have been the only neps flowering then). Has that been your experience, especially with those excellent truncata?


    Regards,

    Joe

    Amori and Steve,
    Those are beautifully grown Neps. How about telling us a little about you folks grow them there-potting mix, temp ranges, humidity control, watering schedules. It's always interesting to hear the methods and techniques used by successful growers.

    Hey Joe

    Yes, the N. truncatas all flowered at the same time. Another one that flowered at roughly the same time is the big N. x ventrata. The N. x edinensis flowers at the same time as N. gracilis (about 2 months ago). Our N. x mixta var. 'Superba' flower at the same time too, and have just finished.

    Good Growing!

    Amori

    First off, a big welcome to the forums to Amori and Steve L! Glad to have you both aboard. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Looks like you both will be great contributors.

    Amori, those are spectacular plants and photos! What a treat to see them all! Thank you for sharing that. It is really wonderful when people share pics of gardens, greenhouses, bogs and native environment so those of us who aren't free to travel around, can have the opportunity to "experience" these places.

    Those are some spectacular plants! You are lucky to be able to have a hand in their care.

    I love that "Toilet Bowl" pitcher but...what a name! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]
    Thanks Amori! Any time you want to post more, feel free!

    Hey Suzanne

    Thank you so much for the kind words! Yes, I am lucky to have a hand in their care. Who would've thought my father's job would bring me to the one city (and out of it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] ) where there is the biggest collection of CP in the old midwest? Thanks again!!

    Amori
