    Big leaves that are knarled and curled.The plant that I got this layer off had big leaves (around 20 ins).The green and yellow are all jumbled together.

    Looks like there is a bunch of spaghnum in that container. Was this airlayer made with you "bucket airlayer contraption? :eek: You may want to re-pot that one into the next size larger container. ;)

    Michael - I have a stack of three gallon and a few two gallon laying around. If you want to stop by tomorrow and get them and a quick tour of Moose Land, you are welcome to. :)

    Any ideas what this one is??It has hints of Jungle Queen and General Pagett.It is the wavy curled, leaves that has me stumped.It sure looks like it will be an impressive plant in a couple of years.

    It appears to be General Pagett, but you're going to need several more leaf generations to be certain.

    I was thinking the same thing originally but the leaves are quite different from any General Pagett I have seen.Time will tell but I airlayered the mother plant myself and the older the leaves get the more wrinkled and curled they become,maybe some kind of genetic variance.Also the colors are not consistent as with the General.Many blotches and random veining.

    No need for an updated picture .It appears to be a very nice general Pagett.As time has gone by it is showing its parentage.

    With the marbling, it resembles Lieutenant Paget more the Gen Paget.

    Mike - perhaps an updated photo is needed after all. :confused:

    That might explain the differences with my General Paget.I will try and post an updated pic but it has not grown too much and looks about the same.

    Interesting, General Paget is a good grower? :confused: Perhaps you can post a new picture this weekend. Try and include a close-up of the leaves. ;)

    Mike's plant appears to have rounded front leaf edges. Gen Paget is more pointed.
