Having tried to contact the offender I got no response at all, so I have now reported this to eBay as an intellectual property rights violation under their VeRO scheme (see http://pages.ebay.co.uk/help/tp/vero-rights-owner.html. Not sure what happens next.

Paul, possibly not much. In my "other life" I've come accross someone running a scam for a very expensive bit of musical equipment - they put the advert up, I report it, they take the advert down - the account remains.

Pleione praecox: A form from China



Pleione praecox var. reichenbachiana  -Images of a huge pseudobulb bought this year from Christian Schreiner which had 8 flower buds. Unfortunately half of these flowers had no lip.

I bought three pleione barcena bulbs a couple of years ago, one is now in flower.

Sadly Paul's complaints to eBay have, as predicted, had no effect.  Several more lots of Lynn Butterfield have just been listed, still using his photographs.  But if this person has so many of this variety, which is not that common, how come they have never got around to photographing the flowers themselves?  Tongariro by any other name is still Tongariro, me thinks.

Hello Steve
I had the same thought. With such a load of Pleione Lyn Butterfield, one should think that he/she had the change to take a photo.... wonder what he/she is selling.

Her are a few pictures of a new investment. Pleione albiflora x Pleione praecox bought at Schreiner in Germany few weeks ago. So the nice flowering is not due to me but to Schreiner.
Anyway nice flowers where Pln albiflora is dominant.

Regards and Merry Christmas to all
Erling

Love the albiflora x praecox, another one to add to the want list.
Over here it is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas... or not really as it is blowing a hoolie and I am walking about in the garden without a coat.  But at least my Christmas pleiones are coming on nicely.  Barcena and Wharfedale Pine Warbler, both bulking up nicely to the point where I have had to part company with some.  Two good pots of WPW and now four of Barcena, wish some of the others were this vigorous.

Hello Steve
Nice pots you have got there, specially Wharfdale is presenting the Christnas colors. Here in DK it also starts to feel like Christmas, last day at work today :-)
But must say that the Christmas weather is not very Christmas like. 12 C more or less all 24 hours and rain puring down. Santa is going to get problems with his sledge.

A word of warning for those of you storing bulbs in greenhouses, sheds etc, particularly in the balmy south of England.  Check things are not moving faster than expected.  I just found some Eiger bulbs with flowers well on the way.  There's early and there's early. ;D

Think it might be time to finally invest in a fridge.

I imagine this particular December is going to cause some problems for all kinds of plants.

December is always a bit of a gamble but Jan/Feb are pretty reliable.

I took a look at some of the seeds I put out earlier in the year and they have sprouted. Good news normally but they may get plenty of below zero in the next few months so...

I'm lucky in that I don't have that many plants and so I could potentially put them all in the fridge if required.

Although this is the wrong thread ... Will this be a problem for Cyps? We here (UK) have had 'prolonged' periods of 13/7 (C) and I'm wondering if they will start waking up only to get a sub-zero welcome. I say this is the wrong thread but I guess this is a common problem for many other plants.

Conventional theory says that some Cyps might not flower without a genuine cold spell, same as some Pleiones, especially Rakata Shot Silk.  Certainly my best Cyp flowering was 2011 after a proper winter.  We shall see.

I am planning on putting some of my more choice species cyps into the old fridge in the garage for the next two months.
