    yes, those Thai varieties are impressive but central Florida is not Bangkok - especially in the winter. I purchased quite a few from him - now only 1 or 2 are left. One problem was that the roots never made it out of the coir dust rooting medium into the potting soil.

    Boy, has this ole horse been beaten to many times or what? And I would agree with Phil and Mike, very,very few of these will actually grow here in south Florida. And other areas as well....
