    Boy was I surprized to find this

    I was at the local hardware store today and went into the garden area and when I looked up boy did I get a surprise.. Well the rest is history, I bought it. Thought I share my find.

    The gardener had this one growing outside in and area that gets plenty of morning sun and is protected from midday on, so I will be doing the same..

    I think it's actually N. x ventrata. Very nice plant, though. It's very nice sized. How many growth points are there? I think I count two from what I can see.

    Yep at a hardware store... I was questioning myself when I walked out, like can this be real. My wife even thinks it a really cool plant..

    xvart I count three. But not knowing exactly what I'm looking for here are a few close up pics.. There seems to be some growth coming off the main plant itself I guess this is normal.
