    No orders from me yet, I'm holding my money for when the species becomes available. If I do get one of the hybrids, it will be after I see some pics of their flowers and I know what to expect.

    I'm mainly trying to avoid buying these seedlings because it will probably do long term damage to my psyche. Having something that off the wall that no one has seen before and have to stare at it every day for a year waiting to see the bloom...I don't think I could take it anymore. I'd be in a straight jacket in a rubber room by the time it bloomed.

    I kind of doubt I'll end up buying one right now. College students shouldn't be spending $75 on seedlings.

    I waiting on the fence on this one too...for the foreseeable future anyway.
    I'd be most interested in the St. Ouen though, of those available crosses.

    I just bought some species flasks, and am now worried that I'll kill them :) With any luck, they'll have a high enough survival rate that I'll be able to offer them at a reasonable price.

    Good for you, Matt! The more vendors that have them, the better for the rest of us!

    I like this particular species the flowers remind me of mickey mouse (hey Heather see I didn't connect it to a female this time aren't you proud? :rollhappy: ). The thing is I'm to scared to try phrags. I will eventually though whenever I get more room or move out and dedicated some serious space to a grow area.

    Matt - Great pickup I'm sure they'll do fine under your care :)

    I hope that happens! I'm tentatively planning on buying a species seedling from you!

    Picked up my four hybrids from Glen yesterday. [One of each] Two of them have spans of about six or seven inches. The plants are well grown and healthy. I am very happy. Rusty
