      This lily farm in Thailand has them listed. http://www.ewaterplant.com/tropical-water-lily/ Can export to Europe, not sure about the USA though.

      q2005, please let me know when you have a tuber or two, or plants to trade. I appreciate the offer! I will be ready whenever you get them. PM me on here as to what you want in trade or if you are selling them. Thank you very much!
      Yes, Gander, it is not easy to find. Both of these were common a few years ago but have slowly become less frequently found.
      Danbo, Thank you, but there is a phyto certificate required for import here which is quite costly. I am sure there are some here in the USA, I just need to find them in a trade.

      Frank what was the name of the light blue one that had mottled leaves that everyone used too have it was one of the easiest vivips to grow. I know i gave them too everyone years ago. I had kiddie pools full of them. That was before Clancy and Calvin they loved playing in the kiddie pools.

      Thanks, Gander. You are probably thinking of Dauben. Nice small growth vip plant that is fairly easy to grow. I still have that one.
      I know I can order Ruby from FAN and will be ordering from them pretty soon, but do not need the minimum order amount for one plant. Blink is a nice vip as well. I lost it two years ago when the tuber did not sprout. I am considering ordering both of those if I do not locate them.

      No this was not Daubin, I think it was one Rich Sacher produced but was so weedy he thought and did not like it. It was a little more purple than daubin and had a bigger flower. I know I gave Nancy one and she had hers for years.

      Lavender Lace. I loved it. Overwintered here for years.

      I just went out and found 5 tubers. they were all out of the water because we just have not had much rain. I got these last year but coiuld not really ever get them too grow. It was my fault used some really bad potting soil. stunk too high heaven, I went ahead and washed these off and brought them inside. Had too chip ice off of one pot. Time will tell what will happen with them

      Definitely let me know if they sprout after being frozen. I have been told Rich was not happy with the lily after releasing it, but it is a great lily for newbies to"cut their teeth" on. It is pretty, but not "showy." It is easy to grow, and prolific.

      I had great success with QOS for several years and oversold them I guess. I will be getting it this year again.
      I currently have
      Florida Star
      Key Largo
      Lavender Lace
      Lindsey Wood
      Madam Ganna Walska
      Tina
      and other non vip lilies.

      I may have missed one or two. I am hoping the vip pads that I am over wintering in aquariums will have made tubers and sprout this spring.
      I lost the Queen of Siam, Blink and Ruby, but hope to be getting them again this year.

      We may have a Queen of Siam. I know it was something of Siam anyway. Lol. It is colored like the Queen of Siam anyway. We saved the tags but I can't find them. My wife should know where they are. I'll ask her tonight and make sure.

      Well, I found the tag and it is a Star of Siam. Funny thing is it looks more like the Queen of Siam to me. I looked up the Star of Siam and it is bluish. Mine is colored more like the Queen of Siam. Even the picture on the tag doesn't look like Star of Siam.

      Mike, that is definitely not a Star of Siam in the picture. If it is a Queen of Siam it is a viviparous lily. There is also a king of Siam, a dark purple bloom with lots of petals. There is also an Amway Siam but that is not the lily pictured either. If you have a spare tuber, I will take it and see if it is QOS, but chances are the company that had the tag made could just as easily put any lily pic on the tag, or any lily in the package, and chances of it being QOS is pretty slim. I appreciate your effort and would be interested in a tuber.

      What I have is a night bloomer. I looked it up and Queen of Siam is a day bloomer. We just got this tropical and another this year. I haven't tried any propagation of them yet. Previously all I had was hardy lilies.
