i'm not too happy with the post office's handling of this and past shipments
(i have stories to tell...) but i'm not too excited about tropiflora's service
either. however, they did promise me another A. reversa in about a month or
so. i'm sorry to hear that you lost your plants, my sinuata is still doing
btw, the one they call white knight, does anyone know what species or hybrid
it is? it's similar to sanderiana, i believe.
i guess i should consider myself lucky to get a veitchii for so cheap, i just
hope i don't kill it.
