    Good riddance....
    you didn't dump them, did you? I need to take some photos of my pathetic excuse for a root sysyem dendrobium. I'm abusing it now to force some new roots. I'll be damned if I don't get this plant to give me some roots.

    Lucan, I only had two to begin with, and both are still sort of alive. The roots are still pretty good. And, I'm not *mad* at them, I just don't really *care* about them. I'm not sure I can ship to you since I forgot you are in Canada - but I'll look into it.

    Yeah, unfortunately, for two not so alive dends I don't care a whit about, *maybe* too much of a risk! lol...sorry...if you were closer, you could luv 'em and hug 'em and squeeze 'em and give 'em fuzzy wuzzy kissies....(I'd not be liable for any nasty fungus you aquired tho!)

    perhaps they'd buck up. One did recently spike, but all the buds blasted. Actually, I cut it, after it fell over due to weakness, and brought them inside in water - and all but the largest fell off on the way in. The last made it another week...before falling to its demise in my kitchen sink.

    Ah well...for a $20 TJ's special, I'm really ok with it. It hangs w/ my amaryllis now, which gives it some serious lovin' when I'm not looking, I'm sure! modest plants...yeesh!
