Who's growing this rarer Christian hybrid?
I have a small plant(4") that looks pretty darn nice, and appears to have good potential as it grows larger, but it dosen't really resemble my picture I have. So...the jury is still out on it's real ID.
How about posting a picture Mr. Searle?
My plant is even smaller than it was 6 months ago, due to the cold weather. It is alive, but it needs to get a little bigger before I even consider potting it up into a 1gallon pot. It's been extreamly slow.
Three air layers will be ready by the October sale?
Who has a picture to share?
Are the colors of Confucius green and white ?
A thread without a pic is like a day without sunshine.
Pretty much like an average day in Kona/Kurtistown.
No, it is not a green and white leaf.
Jeff, I guess it was another wrong named Croton I saw a picture of on another site. But then, what else is new.
Yea, it was probably Dave Butler's cheezy site, Crotonmania. I was told that there's several wrongly named varieties on there AND that he stole two of my pictures from my yard that's up loaded there. I was told it was a joke, a dead fish site.
I do not think there would be a picture there as it would be just a un-named Hybrid in some peoples mind.
Start juicing it with liquid love. With these temperatures it may flush some new leaves!
Sorry to say, it died last week. It really started going downhill from this past cold weather and never could recover. I hope I can get another cutting this summer.
Sorry to hear that. I had about 10 crotons lost in Jan 2010 that will be near impossible to replace. I can't remember where the cuttings and/or plants were acquired. Yellow Nestor is one of those.
A truly disturbing update. Is it true that Celebrity carked as well?
Yes Ron, it died from the two hard winters in a row. And, I didn't get a chance to start another cutting from it. It was a named plant that B. Frank Brown had given to me.
Jeff - were you able to secure another cutting?
No...nothing this summer. The good news is, my Showgirl cuttings rooted earlier this summer. This was one that I got last year with the Confucious and they both died from the cold. Very excited on this one!!!
