    Hey everyone,
    Heavily shifting my focus to miniature PNG dendrobiums, specifically from the section Oxyglossum. Species in particular I am looking for include:
    Dendrobium vexillarius var. retroflexum (blue)
    Dendrobium rupestre
    Dendrobium cyanocentrum white/cream variety
    Dendrobium agathedaemonis
    Any particularly nice clones of cuthbertsonii

    ...and any others! Let me know if you have anything for sale!

    Same. Ecuagenera has a good selection, but I’m curious where other people are getting them from?

    If you happen to locate a source for any of these, would you mind sharing? I too am looking for agathadaemonis and cyanocentrum

    I have a flask of den agathadaemonis. If you haven't found any in a few months hit me up, see if any of mine survive.
    I also have some den brassii seedlings, if you're interested. I'd say around 18 months from first bloom.
    I've seen den. rupestre sold on ebay before from reputable sellers. I got mine from tarzane group, he also sells several oxyglossum dens from time to time.

    What is it with guys named "Matt" and New Guinea orchids? ;) I've grown solely New Guinea species for several years (I visited PNG in college), but recently built a refrigerated paludarium for the highlands species. Andy has a wide variety of New Guinea species, including some at times that aren't on his website (and he knew where to find each plant in a monster greenhouse with thousands just from my saying I was looking for New Guinea orchids...he has an amazing memory). Ecuagenera has some great cool-growing New Guinea orchids (large plants at low prices). I got some rare highlands Bulbophyllum and Dendrobium from Dan Newman's Hanging Gardens near San Francisco (he's a wealth of knowledge). And, I just started getting into flasks from Marni Turkel and Troy Miller (Dendrobium cuthbertsonii and Dendrobium parvulum, respectively). Louisiana Orchid Connection on the website and eBay will have some pretty rare species at times.

    Thanks for sharing all of this! I'd love to know more about what species you're all growing!
