    At the risk of embarrassment, what is this Croton on the left? It's probably a standard common one, but I still like it. Is it a good/easy grower? (Photo stolen from PalmTalk taken by Palmisland)

    The leaf shape and color pattern looks like Colonel Bob Bullock. Randy posted a photo of a similar plant last week. For me, it's been tough as nails and easy to grow. Any plant that can withstand 26F is a winner.

    The feather palm (according to the guys at Palmtalk) is a Dypsis lastellania- var. cape masoala form:confused: & the fan palm I bought as a Coccothrinax sp., probably from questionable parentage.:D
