I get so jealous when I see all these nice Pleione pictures.

I had a formosana that flowered for me a few years ago, with no special treatment.  I did not have the plant for a few years, but have it back with me again.  It is growing well and has about 8 bulbs and a few new small bulbs as well and only hope that it is going to flower soon for me.

As far as I know Pleiones are a bit scarce in our country, but I just love them and would like to get a few more plants.  I would appreciate it if someone could tell me where I can find some plants from someone who is prepared to export to us.

I see from your profile that you are in South Africa, Faan.... I hope some of our Forumists may be able to assist you with some suppliers of pleiones to your country...

Welcome to the Forum !!

Thanks very much for the welcoming words.

At our orchid society we decided a few months ago that we would have a ten minute presentation at our monthly meetings.  We try to talk about something which not everybody grows.  In this process we all learn.

I gave a presentation on Lycastes a few months ago and my wife did one on Brassia on Tuesday night and then even before joining this forum I offered to do a small talk on Pleiones at our meeting in May.  I am now so glad that I came across this forum where I will get lots of information to use.
