I find it remarkable (in a GOOD WAY) that some 40 years after i
first saw these pictured in Exotica in the main branch of the
Brooklyn Public Library, and wanted them something awful, there is
still interest in verified specimens. In fact, many of the plants you
mention in here often are the ones upon which I fixated even earlier
in my plant collecting days, which were then confined to makeshift
growth chambers in Brooklyn apartments....

some things seem never to change.
