Roellke in Germany usually has a sale on young plants for xmas and the more plants you buy the better the price… this year a few people on the forum i frequent decided to go in on an order together. We all ordered a bunch of plants so they only cost 5 euros per plant which is a pretty good deal (almost half price). Two species we all got as a common project. We will grow these together (all over the country) and share our experiences. All a very “hippie” idea, but it should be a lot of fun I think.

The project plants this year will be:
Aerangis fastuosa (a mini for the nano-orchidarium)
Paphiopedilum callosum ‘Pygmy’

But I also ordered:
Angraecum sesquipedale
Angraecum magdalenae
Paphiopedilum spicerianum (I love the colors of this specie!!)
Phalaenopsis amboinensis ‘Yellow Strain’ (an experiment to see how warm growing phals like it on my windowsill)

…all of which are young plants, but large enough that they might bloom 2009. We’ll see. Sooo exciting!!
