    Unhappy Miltassia "Shelob Tolkein"

    I am so very sad that my Milt. "Shelob Tolkein" died, one yellow bulb at a time. This plant was special to me, and I tried Physan, and re-potting and different media, seperating the healthy from the ill... nothing stopped the slow death.....

    Does anyone have a spare that I might purchase?

    A worthwhile plant, easy to understand why you would want to replace it. .Perhaps someone can offer you one, but this should be a pretty easy plant to find in any case. An internet search for (correctly) Shelob 'Tolkein' AM/AOS brings up some possible vendors, and there are almost always some on that big auction site that shall remain nameless. You may find it as Miltassia (Mtssa.) or Bratonia (Brat.), but if you do a search leave that off or you might miss some possibilities with the other name. Good luck.
