    Hi. I'm starting a SAE Project for my FFA chapter and I have a relatively new (or rare?) breed of Cordyline. It's called a Calypso Queen. Would someone be able to give me any information on how to care for them properly. I would love to raise them coorrectly. Please and Thank you.

    Anastasia, Welcome aboard! I do not know if I will be able to help or not, but I will Try. Are you refering to Cordyline fruiticosa? I have C. fruiticosa Calypso Queen growing here in central FL. Takes 1/2 - full day sun. Calypso Queen is a small leaf Ti and a slower grower than most Ti. Here is a photo of what I have as Calypso Queen (in flower).

    You shouldn't have much trouble growing these. They are vey forgiving. However, let's first be sure we know what we are talking about. Try posting a pic. Or if Scott's pic is what you have, let us know.
