Dear Jude,
	I got mine years ago from Girgsby Cactus garden. I've divided 
it and traded away many of them. It gets quite large and heavy.  It 
doesn't help that I grow mine exclusively in stones with a handful of 
sandy soil mix - makes for a heavy pot o'plants.

	I do think orchids are suitable for PBS, but they should 
probably be limited to geophytic types such as Eulophia,  fully 
terrestrial and hardy such as Bletilla and keep away from the 
numerous tropical, jungle, epiphytic sorts that are well covered 

	I do hope you and Tim will work out your trades privately or 
through the Market Place. I assume Ellen has returned from the Amazon 
and not been devoured by Jungle Army Ants, Caiman or Piranha (let's 
hope not)

	Just a reminder	http://senecahillperennials.com/index.php/…
