    im already doing my planning for this next summer. im looking to expand my Utric collection even more, they take up much less room than Neps. i have found most of the common species that have caught my eye and will be getting more but those are fairly easy to find. i have scanned growlists of some of the Utric nuts on here who have one and havent come up with much in the way of what i dont have, next step the CPUK forums. anyways ive come up with this partial list from the link Forbes provided me on epiphytic species. i figure some probably arent in cultivation. if you can think of other rare species in cultivation that i may have luck in searching out let me know. i would also be curious to see if someone had a more or less complete list of species that are in cultivation. anyways thanks for any help you can provide.

    U. campbelliana

    U. kumaonensis
    U. mannii
    U. praetermissa
    U. quelchii
    U. striatula
    U. unifolia

    You've picked out some very rare and difficult to find plants there. I'd kill to get my hands on most of them. At least you have a chance though as most are grown by at least a few growers in the US. Down here in Australia most are grown by absolutely no one and importing them is impossible. My only possibility of getting my hands on any is if I am lucky enough to track seeds down.

    I do have a reasonable list of other species and am always attempting to pollinate them- usually with some success. If I do manage to pollinate something that isn't on your growlist I'll keep you in mind.

    Which Aussies list were you referring to?

    basically i was refering to the number of Aussie Utrics that are VERY hard to find over here. actually your list is one of those i glanced over and was quite impressed. quite a variety of locale dichotomas. im begining to wonder if just taking every good sized growlist i can find to figure out which species are in cultivation is the easiest way to go. anywyas thanks for the offer on potential seeds. definatly keep me in mind.

    U. buntingiana---Not currently in cultivation
    U. campbelliana---Some growers in Japan and Europe, rumored to be in the US but no confirmation
    U. endresii---I have this
    U. jamesoniania---I have this (watch you CPN)
    U. kumaonensis
    U. mannii---I have spoken with 2 growers in Europe that claim to have this. Very difficult to maintain from season to season according to them
    U. praetermissa---I have this and might have a few more clones soon
    U. quelchii---I have this
    U. striatula---I want to say I have this but don't quote me
    U. unifolia---I had this once and might again shortly

    All the Orchidioides are slower growers so it will be some time before I do any more dividing but I'll keep you in mind when I do.

    Rattler,

    Yeah, my goal is to get all the Orchidioides and Iperua. I am 3 away and hope to be 2 away by the end of the season. Something tells me buntingiana is going to be missing for sometime but if I can confirn the Costa Rica rumor then that might improve matters.

    Dustin, I have had quelchii for a little while now. Nice plant but a bit of a pill at times. It totally went down on me and I almost had a heart attack untill I found some tubers in the pot. All up and growing now and happy as can be. Others have this plant (some closer than you think ) and I think in a few years it will be much easier to get a hold of.
