Well, after much suspense and excitement, my Paph. Stone Addict from Bob and Lynn Wellenstein arrived this afternoon. It is a lovely, compact (thank you P. adductum!) plant with two buds and nice roots. It was very top heavy so I did repot it, which I hope was not a mistake, but I was afraid after it toppled once that it would topple again and again and damage the spike/buds.

The packaging was immaculate, and I am really picky about packaging. I literally had to cut the plant out of the mat of wax paper grass used. It was packed exactly as I like to pack my plants, just flat in a box, no newspaper wrapping. :)

There was also a very nice bonus plant included.
I could not be happier, and I'm sorry I gave Bob such a rough time. The wait was worth it.

Here is a photo. The spike is SOOOO dark and velvety. I am in love just with the spike! LOL!!!


Oh, I just want to add, it is SO nice to have this entry into my database completed. It has been just a photo and a hope for so long....

Not expensive. Actually almost $30 less than I bid on it for originally, and that was including shipping! I am getting another division from someone for roughly the same price.

re: the bonus. I offered it to someone. If he doesn't take it, I'll put it up for bidding for forum maintenance. It's a Woluwense (niveum 'Whitellee' x roth 'Noyo' AM/AOS). 17" plant, very nice but I don't do the mottled leaves....;)

Hmm.. someone is getting preferential treatment. Did the plant come from Antec? It would be nice if they were letting some plants out.

This is another one to check with Jack Schendowich on. When I was looking, he said he'd be able to find them in the springtime.
