    Hi all:

    I know N. platychila will be available soon!. Can anybody guess where are they coming from?. that should not be too difficult to guess. By the way they will not cost 1000 dollars!

    I believe that this species grows at about 1000 m, and it
    seems to do quite well in a mix of sphagnum, orchid bark,
    and perlite. It is quite easy to cultivate successfully.

    Cool, glad to hear it'll be coming soon! I've been waiting on this bugger! Any US dealers reading this who'll have one, go ahead and PM or email me with aproximate date and price, I'm ready!

    The $1000 was a joke... although a cutting off an adult N. klossii would probably be able to get that much outta me! After klossii, edwardsiana and playtchilla what else is there?

    Those jungle explorers are gonna have to discover some new "holy grail" species - we're running low! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Swords, I would talk to Tony or check out his list of up coming plants that should answer your question.

    Josh, $1,000 eh? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Woo! Hoo!

    I expect that in no time you'd have it rather larger, looking like this:



    There are new species being discovered all the time, it just takes a while for them to be introduced to cultivation. There's going to be at least one more introduction of a new species this year.

    Hi there,

    what process has to be done to name e.g. the sp. #8 a platychilla? The species was discovered 1998 and described as playchilla 2002. So it takes so long to describe species?

    Cheers,
    Max
