    Default Polystachya galeata

    This is an African lowland species...therefore a hot grower. It is reported to have a strong scent but I did not detect that this morning...maybe later in the day. This is a first blooming for me.

    Hmm, I really thought I sent you the whole plant with that tag on it.

    No, I don't need this one but thanks.

    I went to my inventory list and I do not have you marked as the prior plants owner. I do note that we must have traded 3x in 2008. I have some plants dated with your name in March, June and Oct of 08

    3X last year? Wow! No wonder we have not done any trade this year so far. Let's do it next year then.
