What a sweet message!  :-)  I wish I could say the same, but I have only 
acquired a few things through the BX.  And it seems I selected 
challenging and temperamental specimens. Very few of them have survived, 
and none of them have thrived.  On the other hand, I've shared a couple 
items with friends in milder climates, and they have been ever so 
grateful ever since!  The biggest success was Ennealophus euryandrus.... 
which went nuts in Texas, and fizzled out in Ohio... after just a few 

Even though I haven't shared your success, I do share your sentiment.  
The PBS & the wiki are absolutely wonderful, and I love the BX and all 
the generous PBS members.  This is one of the best organizations I've 
ever belonged to !
