    I was very happy, when our local mastergrower, Hans Christiansen, under my recent visit to his nursery in Fredensborg, offered me to buy one of a few clones of P. insigne 4N. He got them from a former, german nursery, that has been turned into a museum, but is closed for the general public. The plant was already in flower, when I bought it.

    Is it a 'confirmed' 4n or presumed.

    Knowing the professionalism of mr. Christiansen and the usual reliability of the source from which he got the plants, I assumed, that its status had been confirmed through genetic analysis.
    But since you ask, I will do likewise next time I meet Hans!

    Oh, no...not at all ready for that...yet!

    But I will have you in mind in the due course of time....that is, if you don't hurry up and contact Hans to buy one of the remaining plants! I think, he was going to send one or two to a collector in Sweden, but he might besides have one or two to spare?

    Might be a good Idea though, to tell him, that you saw my plant in this forum and that I proposed, that you contacted him...with some of the rarer plants/clones he can be a bit finicky about whom he wants to sell to!
    As he once said, being rather indignant about some plants, that had suffered too much heat during postal delivery: "Det er jo levende væsener!" ("Understand that: They are living beings!").

    Very impressive flowers and on the other hand very long leaves and a huge plant too, compared with normal P. insigne. I like it very much.
