    Never. I have a few Thai folks I can lean on but I am not keeping any hopes up. Any natives to its locality know of any sources? Perhaps Andy May?

    Did your Thai folks help you out? I do not know you have such a strong interest in Bulbos.

    Marni, I will kill more than you given the opportunity. I have not asked yet but I will today. Some of them are hard to reach but I will keep at it. If I locate some I will make sure they are spread around.

    Tom my interests shift a bit from time to time.

    ain't that the truth.;)

    Boooo!! Good thing I am persistant!:p

    Marni can send you her address if you don't have it already:D
    Anyway a flask can make it this way? I am sure the ones who posted would split the cost.

    As I stated, persistent. If by chance there is a lost flask with my name on it, I would greatly appreciate it. At least now I know it is a possibility, even if it is a slim one.
    Thanks for the pics. It makes me want it just a bit more.;)

    It really looks better on photos...the flower is tiny, ~1cm. To me, it is okay and I will like to have it but I would not trade any of my gold for it, maybe silver.:D

    he said "I Know!" as he walked away with confidence--that is what I got from a restaurant owner in Rome when I complimented how good his food was.
