    Heres a couple of pictures of me and kovachii in situ.







    The story of kovachii is amazing... It will be a few years before it ends.

    Those are fun pictures Kyle! Thanks for posting them--how neat to be able to see the plant in its natural surroundings! I still think the flower looks like Dumbo with its big ears.

    Look at the color and size of that flower! Can you just imagine the hybrids that will result from this parent? Beautiful. Just Beautiful.

    Hmm...so let me guess!

    There's a pasty white guy with a Northern European look and a lot of sunburn, and then this bronzed, dark-haired guy who has a more "business as usual" expression. In situ. And Kyle is from Canada. I'm going out on a limb here, Kyle, but I'm guessing you're the blonde!

    What was your experience with this enigmatic flower and what can you tell us? I've heard claims and rebuttals among the pros in the field. I know as hobbyists, we're sitting in the cheap seats. You're in the in situ photos, so cleary you paid more for you seat! But I think it's worth promoting discussion on real issues in a serious scientific field, a lucrative business, a possilble ecologic crisis, a political football, and a cultural passion - particularly since they're coming into conflict with one another.

    Please share what you can!

    Default WOW

    Kyle,

    That must have been a phenominal (and to me it would have been a humbling) experience. Awesome! When did you make the trip? Ahh...eventually I plan on going to Mt. Roraima in Suriname and Venezuela. Yes, please do tell us you take on the who kovachii saga.

    A cross with a besseae should be most interesting.
