I received the latest supplement from Paul Christian today and noticed that he is advertising Corybas pictus (Java) tubers for sale: http://shop.rareplants.co.uk/prodtype.asp?cookiecheck=yes&PT_ID=646

Hello everyone,
Being the Betty Clark mentioned above, and the breeder of 'Twin Stars' I would like to clarify a few points. 'Twin Stars' was registered as N. triandrus var triandrus crossed N.b. viriditubus. Mike Salmond seed SB.204 back in 2000, and was registered in December 2003. It is not N. tenuifolius as stated previously. If there are any further queries I would be more than happy to answer them.
Thank-you Betty Clark.

Hello, Betty, nice to "meet" you and a warm welcome to the Forum!
Sorry for getting the information about 'Twin Stars' wrong; I have had an contrite Jean Wyllie on the phone this morning, apologising for getting the parentage mixed up. Jean tells me that the buds are just opening on 'Twin Stars' and it should be out and looking good next weekend. Now, if I can just get her organised to take a photo for us...... ;)
Thank you for taking the time and trouble to contact the Forum about this: we look forward to having the benefit of your experience in future, too.
Best Wishes

No sooner had I made the request to Jean for a photo and said pic arrives; I was out at the BBC by that time, earning my sunday crust, so I only get around to this now, sorry Jean!
Here is N. 'Twin Stars', just about to open, more pics when she does!

Hello Betty, lovely to have another NZer on the Forum. I do hope you'll stay with us all. In the meantime, I also hope you are very well and still gardening madly. Best wishes, Lesley

Just to tease you a little more with Twin Stars, here is how she is today:

Easy to see the "starry" reference to the flowers, isn't it?

Me, too,  Mark.... you'd better go and make the sandwiches, it'll likely be a long wait, I don't think there's many more than that potful in the country. hope I'm wrong!

`Twin Stars' is a real honey. I've never seen it here either so I guess there aren't too many anywhere. Betty has done some lovely things with little daffs and this one I think is a winner because there's nothing even slightly like it so far as I know. Now that she has said what the seed and pollen parents are, perhaps someone working with the littlies may do the same cross with interesting results.
