Hi Ron, I just loved your story, how you wrote it and the enthusiasm and excitement you put into it, of course, with a touch of humour. It is always exciting when we, as enthusiasts, (nay, fanatics!) see some results from our years of hard work and frustrations come to fruition. Just as I have done with Ixia, collecting for all these years. I still get excited when something flowers after all these years. And it's always nice when you can prove the "so-called" experts wrong when you discover new growing regimes and techniques that work for you. I'm looking forward to you publishing your results which I 'm sure will go a long way to helping others grow this wonderful species. And, of course, I'm a little jealous (toungue-in-cheek) of all that beautiful sunshine you get in Hervey Bay. Can you send some of it through to Gippsland for me?
