    LOL!

    Actually, only the first few flowers at the base of the spike have opened, so you'll only have to keep it alive a few more weeks to get all of the pollen!

    No reimburse or pay--if you have some neato this or that I can mess with you might send at some point, well, that'd be great, and I appreciate the offer!

    How about these seedlings:

    Odontorettia Mandarine (Lemboglossum bictonense x Comparettia speciosa)
    Bulbophyllum (phalaenopsis x ecornutum)

    There's some chance the latter one will be large and smell like rotting elephant. I heard you're getting into that kinda thing . . .

    Awesome--that sounds like a great trade--you're on!

    Ah yes, carcass-air. My tastes might be changing. Bruce always puts one of those Airwick deodorizers next to the cat boxes; if I can breed the dead elephant to some kind of floof, I might achieve the same kind of catbox / deodorizer overlayment in flora....

    You remember one of the Bulbo seedlings I sent you last year – the B. lilacinum x careyanum? B. lilacinum is one of the few good smelling Bulbos . . . I think it's supposed to smell of roses. B. careyanum, looks very similar (except that lilacinum are a lilac-colored 'foxtail', while careyanum are a dark blood/rust color (a little bronzy, I admit)), but smells foul. I'm not sure what kind of foul.

    For those of you who have not smelled many Bulbophyllum, they come in many varieties of foul. Some smell like feces. Some smell like old fish. I've smelled a B. echinolabium that had the distinct odor of rotting saltines (which I should note, I've never smelled. But that's what I could best describe the odor of the bloom as.)

    Anyhow, it turns out I've already sent you some catbox/floof. BTW; if that seedling didn't make it, let me know. I've got plenty more of that cross still around. For that matter, if anybody else is interested, let me know. I'll post something about it in the trade/sale section in a week or so.

    Well rats. And here I thought I'd be coming up with something original. Pffft. Be interesting to see how the smell turns out.

    Seedling is doing great btw, put out a new growth this spring. Here's a pic. Also, I have this labeled as lilacia. Is it lilacinum?

    ( more freakin label changing)

    Sue, after reading your replies, I went ahead and snarfed the lowest bloom for some pollen; put it on a Mtdm.. It probably won't grow a tube long enough to reach the ovary, but maybe.

    (I know; I'm trying to go into a different subtribe, but what the hell....)
