    Does anyone know of a source in the US for either BS or NBS Neocogniauxia monophylla? Seed grown would be preferable. Not interested in N. hexaptera. Looks very similar, but it's supposedly even more difficult, so I'd rather not.

    I think Marni had flasks in the past and I believe Darrin (Mountain Orchids) has some, but don't know if any are available. I always thought hexaptera was the easier species?

    Well, I haven't tried either, but it's what I've read. I doubt either is very easy. I do somewhat prefer the growth habit of monophylla.

    I've grown monophylla in the past; bloomed in the middle of summer .
    I remember I bought it from Andy's Orchids.

    I have a NBS plant that I might be willing to sell. I paid A LOT for it so it wouldn't be cheap.

    I did notice it. I think it was up for about 5 minutes after I saw it before they were gone. But I've been looking for it for a while now.

    Sent you a PM.

    If anyone knows of a source, I'm still looking. Andy's and Mountain Orchids don't have any.

    Have you tried talking to the Louisiana dudes?

    That is unfortunately not an option.

    Now time to sit and wait and hope that someone remembers you when they see one :). I'm still waiting for Polystachya kermesina...haven't seen it in close to 30 years.

    That's an interesting one. Been looking for Polystachya victoriae myself. Andy says he's trying to get more of N. monophylla, but that could be in a year or two or more, so nothing for now.

    FYI, I did eventually find a seedling probably 2 years away from blooming size. Doing OK for now, but we'll see.
