    Default Thank you, guys.

    Diane, it is not so expensive now.
    Early last year there was gossip about one or two mountains full of merrillii.
    Manila is flooded with merrillii at the moment. Too bad mine were acquired before that.

    I love it! Gorgeous deep color and the curling of the petals is perfect.

    "too bad" because it was expensive then or that there are even better clones? I can't imagine it would be the latter... this is amazing as far as colour...

    I just love this... I will have to keep an eye out for one!
