    It looks as you are growing your collection fast. How many Croton plants do you now have in your collection? Happy 4th!

    Hope everyone is enjoying their Independence Day Holiday with your families and/or significant others. Stay safe with the fireworks this evening.

    Alicias, I do not know why but I was under the impression that you were female. Those look like man hands in your photos.

    It is kind of coincidental that the photos of your crotons in the shade house looks exactly like "Billy's" shade house interior photos on the Me, Myself and I Forum. Same plant benches and pavers. "Billy" used to contribute on this forum as "Bills". "Billy" has publicly voiced his disdain for the Croton Society and this forum.

    Whoever you may be is irrelevant to me. I enjoy seeing people post photos and being cordial, which you have been. If you are an alias for "Billy", then you must ask yourself are you being hypocritical. Trying to sneak back on here because that other forum is on life support takes alot of chutzpa. Hmmmm. :confused:

    If you are not a ghost front for "Billy" aka "Bills", then please accept my apologies. :)

    Alicias, Looks like all the cuttings you got last fall rooted. You must have a green thumb.

    Moose, I noticed all that too, but hey those are some beautiful crotons Alicias is sharing with us, and crotons are what this forum is all about...
    Perhaps she is Bill's wife or girlfriend, who knows? She has been cordial like you said, so I say no worries about personalities unless they become a problem...
    If people can set their differences aside to share croton photos and info then we will all be the better for it...
    Some of us are probably supporters of Obama or Bush, but who cares, we don't need to discuss that stuff here, and likewise personal differences should be set aside here also....
    Just my 2 cents.

    Yes, it's too bad "you know who" can't control his implusive nastiness and use his obvious determination, enthusiasm, and knowledge in a friendly and helpful manner. His dark side always seems to surface eventually.

    I second Dean. I am hoping for a different & positive outcome this go around, the 10 to 12th time since December 2010. You reregistered again and obviously have a great interest in our space. Play nice and you are welcome here, just as anyone else is. Kindness is key.

    Peyton,

    I wish you were right but Alicias is posting the same pics as Sick1166 on the other site, Sick1166 was a former member that lasted a very short time here before becoming belligerent and subsequently getting banned.

    "To become enlightened, one must unburden themselves from the naming of the crotons."

    "A teacher that has embraced and encumbered himself with sloth, can not achieve enlightenment nor teach." :eek:

    I agree with you 100%. A few fellows on this site are making it very obvious that they are diligently monitoring Crotonmania in an effort to connect any of our members with theirs. I can't help but wonder if this is deterring perfectly innocent croton hobbyists from joining us. Anyway, I think it is food for thought.
    By the way, I have absolutely no idea who Alicias is but I find some of her plants very interesting and would love to know where she obtained a few of them.

    That Richard Krukonis looks more like Arthur Howe. I have yet to see the real RK outside of the photo in the book.
