    Curses! Foiled again! I'd bet, if we did the math, I'd come out the bigger spender....

    How's *that* for one-upsmanship? yourself!

    I'll just slink quietly away now...

    I will add though - yes, those long petals - the patience it takes to wait for those petals to fully drop! I can't wait to have one in person one day!

    Doh. D'allesandro had spiking adductums at the NY show this year for 100. I'm sure they sold out quickly, as did his selfings of delenatii fma. dunkel.

    Well, after talking to Tom about it, exstaminodium apparently has a "death wish:" not many people can keep one alive long enough to bloom it.....

    Might be something to hold off on, Pete. You can still be Paphraguy in my book.

    I wonder why! It should be no different than growing any other long petalled Phrag species. Maybe, I'll get one someday and prove him wrong.

    I think the key lies in its price tag. It's expensive, ergo, it will be impossible to grow and easy to kill.

    I don't think I have ever seen one for sale anywhere. I did know of one grower who had a division for sale and it was quite expensive.
