    yew sung...to be ever so american... you are the man!! in my younger more wilder years when the big box stores first started carrying orchids, there was a large cat. that was priced at about 100usd... i was young and sneaky, i pealed the sticker off and replaced it with the sticker for a .99 petunia...long story short, i waited 7 years for it to bloom, when it did it was something very akin to this! wonderful smell and all... excellent find! great to get such a pure form! congrats!

    not that i am suggesting anyone beyond the age of highschool should do such things...BUT the peal and switch is a two part action... after making the switch, you cant check out in the garden department, oh no, you must go to the main checkout and find the counter with teenage boy working the register....they dont know trees from grass... yes, i was a devious plant addict from an early age... luckily, ive outgrown my shady ways, but i always felt those box stores kinda deserved it ;-)
