    Hi there,

    I was wondering when Ne. edwardsiana will be sold commercial. I know that's not possible to reproduce this species with invitro culture. But why? Aren't there any other reproducing opportunities?

    Cheers,
    Max

    It will, eventually. Not all species are easy to propagate in vitro. Getting seeds to germinate in vitro can be challenging enough, but getting the germinated material to respond to the various hormones in the tissue culture process is another challenge. Different species require different hormones, and in different amounts. Edwardsiana is one of those that has proven challenging, but it is being done.

    As I've said many a time before, patience is a virtue.

    How many nurseries are busy trying to multiply Edwardsiana do you think?

    The first one to be able to offer them can really sell them at insane prizes. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I noticed there has been an increased demand to have this plant around. It looks like the black market may be the one to have it first. Hopefully it's the real thing and not a hybrid with villosa or anything like that.
