Hi guys,

Been a few years since I've been here! Been in school full time (pursing A.A.S. in Veterinary Technology) and working full time so my head's been spinnin'! Anyway, I have a few Cephalotus crown divisions up for trade, one of which has a flower stalk. I bought the mother plant maybe 5-6 years ago as a Hummer's Giant crown division from an eBay seller in Alaska. I almost lost it due to crown rot or fungus 3 years ago but it bounced back with vengeance and is flowering for the second year in a row. I'm aware of the current controversy surrounding the validity of Ceph cultivars vs. environment, but what the hell... for cross pollination sake (*info on which I'll need the group's help with later!), I'd still like to pick up some similarly well started divisions other known cultivars like Czech Giant, Big Boy, Eden Black, etc. (or any particularly nice unregistered Cephs!)

I also might be interested in trading for some of the prettier Heliamphora species.

Following find pics of the mother plant, pics of the divisions from a month or so after first potted, and current pics.

Thanks for your interest!

Tony Thomas

Dude, Brooklyn! I live in Manhattan. Really interested in a div, but I don't have any helis or special cephs to trade. Any chance I could purchase one, you wouldn't even have to ship it, I could pick it up ( if you would like).

Whoops!

Sorry Dimitri! Pardon my ignorance - I didn't check the ICPS site before I posted and just assumed. And we all know what happens when one assumes!
