OK, so there is lots of comment about E-bay and whether things are worth or not worth the money. BUT when I found this item I just had to stick in the directions to it simply for the bizarreness factor - not as to whether anyone fancied owning it! Have a look and wonder at what people do......

(I hope that this gets recognised as a Web address.

Cheers,

Hi jez

That is seriously daft why would you put a loph on that huge plant, wouldn't fancy paying for the postage ?

Yes daft isn't it Jez! I had seen it but didn't dare post it due to the recent controversy.

Hi Tina,
Daft idea? That has really gone and upset me now!
Some of us have problems, like this bridgesii, and are toying with the idea of whopping a graft on the top to stop upward development.
NB it's already nearly 1m above the normal level I fix my bubble wrap at.

Roy,

You'd have to chose the bit to stick on top (scion!!!!) with care so that it was not a species that is afraid of heights.....

..... I worry for that Loph.... could it get somewhat paranoid and attempt to fly, no?
