Linkha - what sort of prices are they going for?  There are some very nice one in the nurseries here at the moment - but they seem to have doubled in price almost overnight.

Any chance of another shot of the orange one once it opens more ??

No need to guess that is my favourite  :)

Hi Rena, they were from R35 to R45, this is at the Amalinda Nursery in East London.  They are going for between R75 up to R100 sometimes at our local nursery.  There was a gorgeous red bromeliad at the local place a while ago, but I didn't take it for it was way overpriced  :'(

Abby, yes I will post some more pics once the orange one is open.  I eye it every morning to see if there is any progress, but it seems that its making me wait  :)

Have a good day

I am visiting East Londen during April. There is another nursery or two that has some really stunning specials. Some of them went for R20.00 each the last time i visited. I travel by air so transporting them back to Gauteng is a probem. I am going to buy some this time and courier them home. Will show pics when i go and visit. My daughters neighbour has an orange one on the pavement. I have been eyeing that one for a while now.

Kind regards
Eddie
