    Drop dead gorgeous

    Dory bought this gem for me at the local Trader Joe's.








    The name is all but indecipherable to me. Honestly, I couldn't care less, it's too pretty to care what it is. But here is what the tag says, for those who will want to ask "what is it?"
    Pot. Hoku Gem 'Sunspots'-- As apt a cultivar name as any!

    It is a complex hybrid. Pot stands for potonia or something like that. Like I said it is a complex hybrid. I would have to look up the species involved but it is like 3or4 different ones. It is nice though. Very cool.

    And I go and try to find out the species involved and every site I try is down.

    He he he! Isn't that always how it goes?

    Take your time, I'm in no rush. It's not like the plant's going anywhere.


    Within a couple hours of me sticking it in the LL tank, the flowers perked WAY up, and the leaves, I don't know how, got greener. I think it likes it in there, but I'll keep an eye on it. It may like the GH better.

    Careful the high humidity can cause flower spots. But then the lower humidity in the house causes the flowers to drop faster. It's a double edge sword. One of those danged if you do danged if you don't.


    Potinara = Pot = B x C x L x Soph

    Found a great website!!!!

    Hybrid abbreviation list!!!!
