Missed you all at SEPOS, it was incredible! I got a Fugaku, Yasuru-takakuma, Hanagoromo, Cym. sinense 'Ri Xiang', Cym. goeringii 'Tian Cao', and a Pleione praecox.

Yep.

two Neo. falcata Amamifuran.
A Dendrobium moniliforme (no tag) in bloom.
A Psychopsis Kalihi alba 'green valley' in spike.
And a Phrag. Schroderae deviation.

But with the phrag I got it doesn't look look like the one on google. Mine has way longer petals and more green and purple than pink. I emailed the seller to send me a pic of it in bloom.

I had lots and lots of fun!!

But the real question are:1. Is it really the original plant? and if not, 2. Are all blooming like the original plant?

You might have noticed they had a 'Hômeiden' seedling as 'Hômeiden' for the same batch. Also, they had sold Den. Ise 'San Kan Ô' as Den. moniliforme 'San Kan Ô' in the past. Whether intentional or not, things like this does happen, and in fact happened. It is good to make sure because it isn't cheap.

Apparently, 'Manjushage' seedlings are getting cheaper than 5 or 6 years ago. It probably will be a lot cheaper in next few years.

Almost made a bid on 'Kishû Ryokufû,' but it is about $30 in Japan. Nice plant, though.

Yeah, it's sort of my consolation prize for having somehow overlooked the magnificent Fugaku which Quay acquired at SEPOS. I also won the Yasuri-Takakuma, which surprisingly drew no other bids.

I guess I'd better take some pics of the 7 I picked up at SEPOS.
