    Just wait, any second now someone is going to post and say, "No, that's Irene Kingsley."

    Ricky - could your search be over? That could be the real deal in my opinion! :eek: If that is Irene Kingsley, it is the best looking one I have seen. I have not had my Irene Kingsley very long but it does not seem as slow as my "brother moose" has described.

    LOL :p just another moose :)

    I bought "Satan" from Jesse Durko around 10 years ago. It was cut from the same plant as the one in The Book. Over the years, I've made at least 100 new plants from it, six of which are in the ground in my garden in various places. Some of them look like Irene Kingsley, some look like Satan. As matter of fact, at both Croton meetings here the same plant was identified by the "experts" as both. I've said this before, as far as I'm concerned, they're the same variety.
