    Does anyone on the forum grow Governor Martinez? The reason I'm asking is that I think the croton that Kip won at the last Auction called Alva after the town it was found in, could be Governor Martinez. It bears a very strong resemblance to the picture on page 99. If you're growing it, perhaps you could confirm.

    Governor Martinez of Alva? I have no problem with changing the name back if confirmed. I just hate calling something NOID, it was a temporary name.

    Marie - Rough call based upon two leaves above and one old pic in the book. Leaves above appear to have red margin all the way around the leaves; those in the book do not. Nothing in ether pic to lend any sense of scale, i.e., how big. Anyone have any pics of an entire plant??
