    Ron it sounds like you have many more than the International Quota Regulations will permit one individual to have. So in the spirit of being a good guy, I am willing to help you avoid a nasty fine from this organization and possibly the repossession of your surplus chids. Now you certainly wouldn't want this to happen... and neither would I so here's my address . . . . . .

    Although I like the lip on the first one...#2 is not going anywhere, like petal stance on that one. Wish my other one would have bloomed this year...it is close...it will have a very different color

    I love the blooms! I have a couple seedlings, obviously quite a ways from blooming. I'm enjoying your photos in the meantime.

    I have a bunch of seedlings as well. One batch is maxima ('Wiskey Creek' x self) the other batch of seedlings is labeled ('1' x '2') lol

    This is a pic of 'Whiskey Creek' parent. I just moved the largest seedling out of the compot today to it's own pot.

    I love the deeper shade of lavender on that one.

    I will have to get you a pic of the parent of a div I have...it is a very interesting color form. The mother plant is currently in bloom but I didn't take it down to photograph. It is very pale with veining in the petals.
    When I was in Peru I came across a wonderful maxima at a roadside vendor. Wish I could have brought it home with me. It could have been mine for about $12 American. and a long prison term. Here is a pic of it...
