    Bulbo bandischii is not the same as hap bandischii.

    No. It looks vaguely similar, but it isn't. It's furry, the sepals are contorted, and it's a helluva lot smaller than any blumei I've ever seen.

    In that case, you might be right. I might not have contortisepalum. I have an even cooler species.

    And no. You can't have a piece of it.

    Chris, you might want to e-mail our mutual friend with your list. He probably has a couple. Or maybe you tried that avenue already?

    Not fair, Jon has the cool species and isn't willing to ship or trade with people in PR. Ohh well might as well have something to look forward to buying.

    Wow Jon, that is AWESOME! I don't think it's lorentzianum, though, from what I've seen lorentzianum has "fuzzy" petals. Not that I would turn down the opportunity to beg for a piece of yours!!

    Have you found any of them yet, Chris? I like to add Bulbo. repens to my collection. Do you know where I can get one?

    Take whichever ones I can find until I run out of room then either

    A) build a bigger orchidarium or

    B) stop until I can have a greenhouse.

    Tom, not really. I also haven't seen a source of B. repens, either. Sorry.
