Does anyone have any Dresslerella species? I only have pilosissima at the moment.
I do. I love the genus in spite of the fact they don't have 8" flowers.
LOL! You're such a teaser, Dale!
I like this genus also but don't have any at the moment.
Try contacting Marni Turkel (OI user name Marni). I know she has a bunch of species from the genus. I'm not sure how many she has for sale though.
I think Lynn O'Shaughnessy has some also.
Thanks everyone. Dale, do you have anything for sale?
No, I don't. Dresslerella are difficult to divide because the rhizome is very short and the plants don't seem to make 'natural' divisions. Nor do they, in my experience, produce keikeis. They can be propagated using leaf cuttings similarly to restrepia, but the strike rate is very low.
Interesting. I've found that some do produce keikis if they are really unhappy with the substrate. I've never tried leaf cuttings. (Where is that box of razor blades?)
Need some new razor blades?
She offers, helpfully!
Thanks, Karen, always so helpful.
I'm still waiting for lynn to get back to me but everywhere else has been no luck, including Dan Newman.
Any other ideas?
I purchased 4-5 species from Woodstream Orchids.
I think Woodstream sold off all their Pleuros. They used to work with Finca Dracula in Panama but that ended a few years back. I could be wrong though. Lynn can take a long time to respond since she's on the go this time of year doing talks.
Try contacting Andy's. A phone call is much more likely to get a reply than an e-mail.
