    I'm currently home with a stupid head cold but I'm not the type to sit around and do nothing. Kleenix in one hand I go outside to take some photos with the other.

    Dave,
    You have some nice plants that caught my eyes. Do you have a name on the last picture in your first post? With the nice colors. Some great looking stuff. Are you able to get down here saturday for the meeting?

    Sorry, I don't have a name. I got it from a collector who didn't know the name either. It is my favorite one.

    Miami is a 3.5 hour drive for me and that is a little too far to day trip it. Got a lot of stuff going on, so unfortunately I will have take a rain check. Thanks though. I enjoy the photos of your place. So, hopefully there is someone photographing it. Too bad someone can't live stream it. Would that be too much of a plant geek? Post on twitter? LOL. Have fun.

    Ricky - Those leaves look too narrow for a Buddy. :(

    moose, I saw you post a photo of 'waterfall' on another thread. I thought that looked a lot like what he pointed out as 'buddy'. I don't know the name of it.

    No. 5 in post 5 looks like Noblissima. The newer name some use is Zulu.

    Nobilissima as well as Zulu is under * in the wiki.
    I think I’ve got the same variety. I’ve got it without any name long time ago.
