Yeah, please keep it on topic guys.

I agree HN, that crest is stunning. Looks pretty large too.

*waits for cortona to return with more pics*

Mine already is raised after seeing those Astro pics...

...I mean, that's good idea KanJe. Cool

Care to share any tips on growing rare Astro cvs. rather quickly, cortona? Or bulk seed sellers in Italy perhaps. I ahvr bought seed from Italy before, but the numbers were far from bulk.

Thanks.

I sort of envious of these beautifully grown plants, especially Astro hybrids... (of which I don't have any... just don't see them for sale down here).

Nice plants you have there Cortona.

don't interpret this the wrong way Emanuele...i think what hes trying to say is that your plants are of outstanding quality and many of them are exceedingly rare in this country and obtaining them in that exhibition quality would be very difficult to say the least (and also expensive). Wink
p.s Great plants once again.. may you amass an even more exceptional collection. (and show us)

Awsome once again. Is it hard to grow Lotusland on its own roots? I should have one in a couple of days (grafted) and if it offsets, how hard would it be to root one of them?
