Mary Sue,

I'm in San Jose, CA and I'm very interested in the genus.  I grow 3 or 4 species and I'm constantly looking for more - same species or others, but finding them is near impossible.  The only resource I've found on the internet aside from the pbs wiki is  If anyone is interested in trading and just exchanging information on this genus please feel free to contact me.
