I bought several flasks from Hengduan Biotech. The wardii, venustum & coccineum are starting to bud. Should have a coccineum in about a week. The emersonii's are moving along at a much slower pace. probably another year or two. All the flasks I bought at this time are doing really well. They were super strong seedlings.
The next batch were in the delayed shipment and are growing much slower. Except the hangiaums. They're growing quite rapidly. Go figure.
