    Not sure if this would help, but someone on craigslist is selling some for $15.

    What's "the big kind" I have enough pom pom (whitish/pink) xenia to feed an army... ok that doesn't sound right. But it has a relatively fat body compared to the size of it's stalks.

    A while back there was someone in Mountain View sold this kind. He said it's like the pompom kind but it would grew into giant stack and doesn't split until it reach somewhere 3-4" diameter. I think he sold it for like $50 a pop. That's all I rememeber. :(

    hmmm, well can't say if I have "that kind" while the individual stalks are big before they split, no where in the 3-4" diameter size.

    I think you're looking for "Red Sea" Xenia Phong. I'll try and scrounge some up before the next meeting IIRC I'll be servicing a tank that has a ton of it this week, I think it's this week, my schedule book is down in the truck and I'm too hungover/lazy to get it right now :p

    Phong, isn't that the kind that looks like a huge xenia tree? Or like a giant stalk of broccoli.

    I think Ed/DrDoolittle had a pic of it in his tank, right?

    OK.. I think it's the Giant Bali Xenia.. Look like the pompom but each stack is much bigger.
