    But first, Chrissy and I would like to thank our neighbor across the bay,
    fellow ST NYEric, for gifting us this lovely Tolumnia 'Genting Volcano'.
    Thanks for the culture tips, we repotted existing Tolumnia. ;):p

    Before Parkfest, I was at my home center and bought these before leaving
    for Pennsylvania. $1.50 per 3'' pot on the clearance rack.

    Thanks everybody.


    The count on the callosums was very good, 40 plus plants with unbroken roots.
    BTW, they have enjoyed a few rainstorms already!

    The tolumnia was the nicest one I saw there, excellent strong colors. For tips, they should be growing in a media that dries daily; Sunny and warm.

    Clearance rack means they were marked down. Original price: $11.00.
    Plants were past bloom (spent spikes without flowers).
    I would bet the home center took the loss, because the plants were still sold.

    I don't think this is Tawianese vendor(s), the name on tags have more of a
    Latin ring to it.

    Soon to come- the $2.00 Phals I bought in November, they are blooming.

    Great buy..:) Miranda is a very rewarding plant if you keep it growing well, but its quite a monster, and will soon take up a lot of space as it starts to vine..

    Nice find, Clark! Lowes selling Nepenthes Miranda...I gotta check this out!

    Here's my grower input of N. Miranda. It's a wonderful hybrid that produces very large pitchers. It takes a while for it to accumulate though; it took my plant about 6 months to adjust. But once it finally accumulate, it flew through the roof. New growth and pitchers everywhere!

    Bought these in November 08. Original price-$33.00
    $2.00/ pot on clearance. Have more that bloomed, but the photos look like garbage and the flowers have past their prime.
