    Jeff - Remember what I said about fertilizing the Pritchardias? Same technique works on this variety.

    So what is the technique?
    Inquiring minds want to know :D

    Peyton,
    It looks like a Dayspring, but Ricky can chime in, his plant.:)

    Ahh,ohh, technique? The only thing I remember is that it's a liquid feed.:D
    Jeff

    Ricky,
    Nice looking as always!

    Ricky - a rooted cutting of this cultivar available for the Spring Meeting auction on Saturday, May 14th would be well received. :rolleyes:

    Moose - I'll be starting up the mistbed as soon as the weather warms up. When I do, I'll put a post here telling everyone what I'm cutting and what would you like. Remind me then and I'll be glad to start a few of these, as the one in the middle of the garden is getting too tall.

    These are a few shots of the Compte de Germiny in the Keys. In the second and third picture are some of the gang that I employ to keep my bugs in check:)

    Do you know I have only seen ONE of the native green lizards in my 19 yrs here in St. Pete?! When I was a kid in Wisconsin, I bought them from the local pet store. They never lasted long. Very sad actually. The only good thing about our recent cold winters is perhaps the cuban lizards have died out some so these guys can make a come back.

    Beautiful plant Glocks!

    Good, this isn't a croton that you see very often. How big will it be, a couple feet or so.:)
