    I wasn't sure where to post this, but hopefully everyone who was on the waiting list sees this.
    I bought a very nice fairrieanum from OZ and selfed the flower. It had a high germination which was very exiciting. However, during the replating process, it came down with contamination and everything was ruined. Sorry, guys! This is a real bummer, because the mother plant died also.
    I was really hoping to get some nice progenies out of this selfing.

    This is very unfortunate and is among the only two that were lost to contamination out of many crosses I tried. Others who signed up for flasks, I am getting them as soon as the weather gets warmer.
    I will personally contact you about their arrival.

    Thanks!

    I know, right?
    I was so pooped when I found out about it. It was a very compact plant with a good sized flower on a relatively short neck.
    Oh, well. What can I do? I'll have fun with other stuff that did work out. :)
