GREG HAMBALI A PLANT BREEDER IN INDONESIA MADE THIS HYBRID AND HE DID
SEND SOME OFF TO THE USA WITH A FRIEND TO SELL...HE ALSO MADE ANOTHER
HYBRID WHICH WAS PHILO. WILLIAMSII X GOELDII. HOWEVER, SINCE OUR RECENT
DISCUSSION OF WHAT IS AND ISN'T P. WILLIAMSII AND WHAT IS P. STENOLOBUM,
I AM WILLING TO BET THAT THE PARENT OF BOTH HYBRIDS IS P. STENOLOBUM.

OF COURSE THE REST OF THE WORLD PROBABLY DOES NOT REALLY CARE ABOUT THE
NAME GAME...THEY JUST WANT THE HYBRID OF THE PLANT FORMERLY KNOWN TO
HORTICULTURE AS P. WILLAMSII CROSSED BY P. SELLOUM (WHATEVER SPECIES
THAT IS).

Ahhh...thanks! I'm really surprised sometimes at how
much we are willing to spend on our "obsessions" (and
so is my wife) ;-)

They do look cool though...

Interesting point...btw, it's now up to $330!

It's interesting how these hybrids attract so much
interest...personally, i'll take a natural species
anytime over these conglomerations, but that's just my
opinion...this might be because i like visiting and
studying specimens (both plants and critters like
leafcutters) in the wild instead of just growing them,
who knows...it would be different if some of these
hybrids somehow "escaped" and formed dominant natural
breeding populations...now THAT - THAT would be
interesting ;-)

Sorry to be so late to answer this email. My email has been down.
This most likely is a Greg Humboli(? spelling), from Indonesia, hybrid
that was sold in Miami at the Tropical Fern and Exotic Plant Society
show and sale last June and believe me, it sold for much less than
this. Sometimes it pays to go to shows and get stuff first hand.
Richard Button had it for sale at the show. I feel certain Mr. Button
could give you more information about the plant. I believe he is listed
in the IAS roster.
