Dear Julius,

Thanks for the compliment....I feel very fortunate indeed!!

I'd love to have a GH someday where I would have more luck, but during the
7-8 months of the year they have to be inside they are in my bathroom
window on a heat mat so they are warm and get some humidity every morning
because of the shower running.....perhaps this is why I have had some
success? D. polyphyllum and D. prancei both came from a grower in
Australia 5 years ago.....it was a bit of an expensive venture with the
phyto fees and shipping, but I am so pleased I have been able to keep them
in good health. I also have a couple of other species, D. amazoense and
perhaps 3-4 no ID plants I have been fortunate to get from friends :o)

Thanks for the wonderful information on the use of the term Jergon by the
way as I did not realize this was the connection!!

Good growing all,

Dan
