    Hi ScotTi :)
    I was wondering how are you. I even went to look for you at "all things plants" once. Are you into bromeliads now? How hard you were hit by the freeze? I should be listening to you about crotons :(
    …and I am collecting and propagating Ti's :)

    Hi Pix! I still have the Ti but have stopped collecting new ones with lots of seedlings coming along. The Crotons are also still here for now also, but many took a hit this past winter. I am getting to old to deal with the plants that demand attention and constant work. As you know I have always had Broms, but the collecting is in full mode and I will be making room for them in garden areas soon.
    The Broms are just to easy. 20180611_173839.jpg
    Stop on over https://garden.org/ You will find me in the Tropical or Florida Gardening Forums
