Hi Chris

Thanks for the detailed post, it explains everything. Interesting about the different mix you are now using and confirms my theory about water retention in moss as apposed to perlite and bark. I don't use much moss myself but I water on a regular basis.

You could have left all your Pleione with me in Priorslee (Telford) ;) although I don't think I'd fit in another 100 bulbs in let alone a 1000 at the moment.

Very true, it's an addiction.

Hi Chris.

Very nice lip to this.
Hope you don"t mind me commenting on this plant as I see it. :-[
I am a little concerned as to the markings on some of the petals and also what I can see of the bulb, as it looks rather infected with disease.
I wonder if this is a recent import, or perhaps as can often happen with forrestii grown in moss, grown rather wet last year ?

you're right Eric, I kept my Pleiones under the tablets and just on that pot there was water dripping and I saw it too late, the other bulbs looking ok,
here H.'Eiger',

Hi Chris

Your Eiger is looking good.
I have had similar problems with infected Forrestii bulbs on occasions as I usually grow these in a near 100% moss  compost .I do find they grow better like this, but overwatering is always a possible hazard.

The pictures I've seen looked like a form of grandiflora to me, but who knows...

Hi Lius

My opinion of the bulbs recently sold on ebay as ADA are that they are a nice form of x Barbarae rather than Grandiflora if the photo shown is the same as the bulbs that were supplied. It is well known that plants sent out from China are not always as described.
