The Nematanthus albus I ordered came in the mail the other day Hurray! No buds yet, it grows to quite a sizeable plant, not looking much like its kin the goldfish.
Also a few days ago I came across a LARGE basket plant of variegated goldfish! It was gorgeous but I neglected to buy it since it was so large and I'm running out of room to hang plants.. Rolling my eyes.

I just came across this site https://www.violetbarn.com/store/index.php The selection of Nematanthus (among other things) is really good. They even have hoyas! They only charge 45$ for a phyto. I think I'll be placing an order with them soon. I may have to wait till sprig because I'm still waiting for lots of orders to arrive.

I have one of his violets, got it off ebay and it is beautiful even without any blooms on it! Ordering from there has been in the back of my mind for a while now..... Hilarious! .......I'm just worried what the shipping cost would be Blinking

What other places have you ordered from? I'm always looking for new sources... Rolling on the floor laughing

You can't 'un-ring' a bell.
Julie & Steve should order together to save on shipping & Phyto expenses!

It would be good to have someone to share shipping and phyto with Thumbs up

As for where else I order from, I started a "sticky" thread on that subject (so we can always have it as reference) Add you experiences too please Big Grin http://cubits.org/tropicalsincanada/thread/view/63738/

Yes, I would like to share an order....but it would have to wait till spring if thats ok with you?
This one is at the top of my list https://www.violetbarn.com/store/index.php?_a=viewProd&produ...

If we order in the spring we could swap cuttings in the fall Sticking tongue out

I've just read bella has deciduous peduncles, they fall off after blooming.
My bella aborts her peduncles shortly after forming, so I can't confirm this, but they seem fussy!

This one's been blooming like mad.
I think it likes the orchid food I've been giving it...
