    Variations of flava leaves

    Sorry if this sounds dumb. I was just out cleaning my plants and collecting seed pods when I noticed something different about one of my flavas. The old spring and summer leaves were pretty typical. Almost no red anywhere on them. Then I noticed one tube where the left half of it was as...

    Lucky me!!

    After trying for a couple years to stratify sarrs seeds and get them to germinate, without success, I had a nice surprise this year. I had taken a seed pod last year and just crumbled it into a container with some newly arrived mitchellianas. This year, this little fella popped up. Amazing...

    rubras

    Hi gang, Wondering if y'all can lend me your eyes and expertise? I have a bowl garden that has 2 rubras. At least they look like 2 different varieties to me. If anyone can venture a guess or two as to which types they are, that would be great. With my luck, they are probably the same...

    Hi, I'm pretty sure my sarrs have mealybugs, but when I went to check them out, the stupid things actually jumped like a little leaf hopper! I have never seen mealybugs move let alone jump. There is the cottony little masses with at least one bug in it, but they are very agile. Has anyone...

    Lowe's Nep and Ping (dial-up warning)

    Hi, Sorry about the quanity and quality of the photos. In a moment of weakness I broke down and bought a Nep and Ping from Lowes today. I broke out the ol' camera and took some pictures. I think the Nep is ventricosa but not sure. Also, is the ping a prim? The ping had a bunch of...
