    Great looking plants but apparently that N. albomarginata isn't doing it's job huh?

    How awesome would it be to have cool little lizards like that darting around? I have a brown Anole which hatched from a potted plant I got off ebay three years ago but she's not nearly as pretty as that Gecko!

    We had treated for ground termites a couple of years ago; this was dry wood termites that we had to treat for. The termites are a real pain, but it is one of the things you have to put up with in the tropics.

    Swords: You are right, I will have to have a serious talk with the N. albomarginatas about this issue. As for the gecko, he is really cool. I have tons of common geckos and anoles; but so far this is the only gecko I have seen with these markings. I wish I had more he is really cool, but he about made me drop a whole tray of plants when he jumped out of a crack int he bench...

    Killer plants!

    I didn't know that there was a "highland" mirabilis... I need to get one of those.

    Clue: sorry for the confusion, but the HL is for Hot Lips, not highland.... This is a lowland plant. Again, sorry for the confusion.

    Your plants look really nice. Thanks for sharing the pics. I guess you'll be glad to get everything back in place. My dad had to tent the house every so often when I was a kid in Florida, and it was always a pain.

    Thanks for the kind words Glen! Everything is pretty well back in place and the temp home in the back yard is torn down and put away. It really was a pain moving everything, made worse by my wife taking the opportunity to tell me how much it was my own fault for having too many plants...

    You're welcome. I was glad to see that some of the plants I sent you were doing so well. The N. veitchii looks pretty happy. That one really deserved to have a good home. I abused it by moving it around too much after it got too big for my LL plant case, and it didn't seem to like me trying to make it into a house plant.
