One of the orchid pioneers mentioned on one of the forums (could even be on Slippertalk) that many years ago, many thaianum were imported into the USA as niveum (did I get the species right?) but peoples did not care about them because they go for the bigger ones (common "bigger is better" perception as usual) for collections as well as for breeding, thinking they are inferior clones, not realizing they are different species.Sure, step 1 - get a thaianum!
Yes, that was exactly why they thought these plants were inferior.It's so much smaller that I find that hard to believe. However, if you know of this potential source you can send me a PM!
Well , maybe your next vacation destination should be Thailand, don't forget us when you go. I am sure many of us will bother you with our wishlist.Yes, and I probably got mine from the same person as in your black book but I could always use a bunch more at a better price! :ninja:
Yes, Dot.Peter O'Byrne???
