Chris (pocomo) has used Stoplight as a parent on a few of his seedlings. He has one called Toad Tongue which was crossedwith an unknown Thai Hybrid. Slow but very interesting. It appears that it picked up the hardiness characteristic from Stoplight. He just made his first air layer of it and it may be making an appearance at a future auction!
Bump for Mr. Mayhew - Allan wnats to see your Toad Tongue ...
Toad Tongue is very, very slow
It's starting to show its true colors. New flush on my first (second) air layer. I'm keeping this one. At least for now. Leaves aren't as long as they can get but are still growing.
I didn't really have a nice picture 'till now. When these leaves harden up it appears there'll be a lot of color. And it seems it's gathering growing speed.
The Toad has got very beautiful Tongues. Nice variety!
Chris, have you got new pictures of “Halfway”? http://www.palmpedia.net/forum/showthread.php?2320-Some-new-crotons
Sergey, Halfway got the croton scale bad this year and is still struggling. I think it will come back fine but it's going to take time. I'll get pictures when it gets better. things happen!
