    Andy - You may want to PM Marie Nock or Jeff Searle. I looked for a couple of years. Jeff Searle had a couple at his Octber Extraveganza. :rolleyes:

    Well it was planted about three weeks ago. Has since flushed new leaves and is looking pretty good. :)

    Ron,

    Have patience, it is one of the slower ones, but will move along over time.

    Oh no. The real Aubrey Christian appears on Gallery #3 of the original Crotons.org website. The plant pictured above looks like what Bob Alonzo identifies as the real Captain Kidd.

    here you go Ray. Taken tonight. New leaf in LL foreground is about 10" long plus a short 1" petiole. Not a fast grower for me but it survived the past two winters without defoliating.,
