    The Tropical Fern & Exotic Plant Society will hold its Annual Plant Auction on Monday, October 22nd 7:00 pm. in the Garden House at the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. There will be a very nice selection of unusual plants.

    Here is a link http://www.palmpedia.net/forum/showthread.php?3452-Monster-Auction-of-Rare-Plants in the Big Leaf Tropical section on Palmpedia - which many of you never visit. Oh, there are crotons too ... :rolleyes:

    But Ron......thanks to you, there was a great selection of croton plants that were offered to anyone that wanted to add not only some color to their garden but, some old rich history in some of these varieties that were being offered. Very generous!

    Yes, kudos to you, Ron! You did a great job of promoting the auction, providing an array of plants and educating potential buyers on their needs and history.
