    These are Thai crotons that Rob brought back from the Biennial. They are vacationing in the tropics this winter. Hoping they will flourish and flower.

    Hey Moose - I have no idea how large the leaves will get on this one. Presently they measure 4" wide by 5" long with the largest 5"w by 6"l.

    The good news is that all 3 are sprouting new leaves...considering these guys came all the way from Thailand shipped bare root is amazing to me. Anyway I think they like it down here.

    Yowie Zowie Jerry - yes it does look like it likes the attention you are giving it. Hmmm, babysitting don't come free. Daddy may be getting back his baby after a little snip-snip action. :p

    Rob - did these guys have a unpronouncable Thai name? Jerry - what does it tag read? :confused:

    Rob - plants are doing well...bumped them up recently.

    Ron - writing on the tags was unreadable.

    FYI - the center plant was grafted. In my opinion, the first plant has all the potential.

    I promised Rob I would update his babies from Thailand. Just one is showing any color.
    Slow & steady but sexy!
