    Nervia.JPG Ana stopped by awhile ago and brought me this Nervia. That was awesome since I didn't have one.

    Ana - it was looking so nice this morning that it was begging to have its picture taken. Thanks Ana - your baby is doing well and looks happy. ;)

    Ron, You are really going to enjoy your Nervia. Nervia always looks great.

    Ron, she sure looks happy to be with a real expert. Scott is right, Nervia always looks great in my yard too. The pinks she takes on later on are awesome and kind of watermelon-like. Her only fault is that she is very slow to grow. One of the slowest here, but worth waiting for.

    Is this Nervia or Elaine or are they one and the same?

    Ricky, I've never seen an Elaine, but your plant looks just like my Nervia.

    Ricky - I don't have an Elaine to compare. Checking the Wiki, I'd say yours looks more like the Nervia, than the Elaine.

    Interesting - Nervia is an AFD plant? There is a note in the Wiki that this is AFD #9? :confused:

    Ron, I think it was Ray that mentioned they were synonymous.

    Ricky, Your plants look like Nervia. Check out the photos of Nervia and Elaine in the Wiki. When you compare the two you will notice they are not the same. Elaine has a softer pink color.

    Looks very happy to be in your care, Ron. As I said previously, Nervia is slow, but it always is colorful and looks great. I have one other air layer I was hoping to trade for something at the next get together. It's looking for a happy home.

    Mark, welcome to the forum! I hope you will be a poster. Some Key Westers here grow incredible crotons. I know you must be/will be growing them soon. Please learn to post photos as well, we all want to see your plants!
