After hearing that, I think I'm going to stick with my instincts :D . I like the look of Minor better, it's IMO a prettier plant, since it colors up nice and after looking some more the Minor does seem to color up a bit more :D Will both be priced the same?? Also what's your favorite? Thanks!

They'll both probably be priced the same, but we haven't set prices for sure yet.

I like H. minor the best of the two.

Thanks Harris! They're only about 5 months out of TC.

This time I used 3 parts silica sand, 3 parts perlite, 2 parts peat, 2 parts orchid bark.

Me too! :D
One more question, are they sensitive to re-potting like Cephalotus, and if you get a young one will it be required to ship potted or can you also get it bare-rooted??

They seem not to be terribly sensitive to repotting like the Cephalotus are. But since they're a bit challenging to grow, we're planning on shipping them potted in order to ensure the best chance of success for growers.

I was thinking about ordering it with a pot anyway, but if that's the option, then it locks in my decision! Thanks! :D

I can't say for sure when they'll be ready. Some of them perished during transplant. Others look very good still and some even appear to be growing a bit. I'm going to give them at least another week. And then I'm going out of town for a bit, so it will likely be two weeks before they'll be added to the store and put in stock.

Not trying to be rude and hope I don't sound it... You whining won't just make a plant appear in someones collection and they give it to you. You are in another country, and you asked for something free which each reduces your chances a bit. Just be patient and you might get an offer. If you see a lot of sumer users getting things more often it's just chance. It just happened more frequently. Hope you get the plant!
