  Re: Anth. veitchii
From: William Perez <wpz at sprynet.com> on 1999.02.14 at 04:41:14(3032)

I seemed to have lost all my files concerning A. veitchii. I pretty much
remember the general requirements but cannot recall if anyone mentioned a
good potting mix. Would it be okay to mount it and hang it in the
bathroom? I also remember someone mentioning that foggy conditions would
produce superb plants. Does a humidifier's output classify as foglike or
is it still too 'wet'?

I need to know because I just got my very own A. veitchii from Tropiflora.
I am very pleased! It's in a three inch pot with three very strong and
turgid leaves. The youngest leaf is two inches long, the next is 3 or 4
inches and the big one is six inches long. Not a bruise or a tear in
sight. It came in an unecessarily large box and packed really well which
explains why it looks so good. And for only twenty bucks! I ordered it
and received it within a week. I urge everyone to take a looksee at
Tropiflora's website and order it. You won't be disappointed.

Now, if only I could find A. waroqueanum for about the same price, then
I'd be set for life!
