Purchased this as "Elian", is this the correct name for this one?
So that was you, I was bidding against. I saw that on E-Bay, but I'm not quite sure what it is though.
That was me! They had 2 more Crotons (Yellow Petra and red Croton) I wanted, but missed the last hour of the bidding and was out bid last nite. But all was not lost. Got a nice Ti plant.
If you are a regular user of eBay, I highly recommend the use of a sniping service. I use eSnipe and have found their fees very reasonable. They get about 98% of my bids in on time; only exceptions were two separate lots of a postcard from Ashtabula! Saves time, money, and keeps me out of bidding wars.
Was this from a seller in HI? I ask because the TI plant you bought is very similar to one I bought a year or two back. Great looking plant Scott!
The e-bay seller is in Hollywood, Fl. He invited me to stop by, but I'm waiting untill spring to buy any more plants. I may be joining The Conifer Society.
Is it named after the Cuban kid that made headlines in the late 90's?
LOL - you know here in Miami-Dade County, all the Mammie crotons have been renamed Mamey.
Just an example how names morph.
I did not know you could chase down crotons on e-bay.
Separate names with a comma.
