    I'd buy that plant just for the awesome growth habit. (That is, I'd buy it if I could grow cool growers.) It's fantastic, Thomas!

    Nice Thomas!

    What are you doing with your cool growers in the heat at the moment? (its over 30 degrees C daytime here in Sweden at the moment, and barely under 20 degrees at night)

    Thanks Tom for bumping this post...

    i have just started to collect Lepanthes, now I need to find some Brachycladiums, Neooreophilus and Teagueia species. I love the growth habit!
