    I think Hausermann's had it as small seedlings when I was there last. That was just a week ago, but I don't see it on their website. I remember it was a Barkeria, but I'm not sure if it was whartoniana; you might have to call or email them.

    Rita, I think mine came from EBay but I don't recall the seller. I checked mine this morning to see if I could take a division but it isn't ready yet. Maybe next year.

    Good luck finding one. It is a great species but it does need vertical space due to long roots and a tall spike.

    I purchased one from Tropical Orchid Farm last year. You may want to email them to see if they have a one off in stock.
