    Picked these up from a local big box. The first is labeled as "mammy" - which I'm quite sure is incorrect based on the leaf shape?

    My big mitt for scale and another labeled as "Banana"?

    I'm quite happy with the score - afterall - it was less than $5 combined :cool:

    All input is greatly appreciated!

    Best Regards,

    Rich

    The first one is probably AFD #5, sold in the big box stores as "Fantasy". The second one is Yellow Banana.

    Doesn't look like my AFD 5 but I'm known to be wrong

    Maybe the first one is called Excellent? Again, total newbie here too.

    Sorry again for the newbie questions - but how many AFD's are there? I'm guessing that all positions 1-7 are accounted for? I am getting more an more into crotons - but the more I do - the more confused I get?

    So is the leaf shape/color characteristic what defines a cultivar?

    ......must quit addiction now.......and did I mention that someone turned up my interest level in cycads over the weekend?

    Stick a fork in me - I'm done for :eek:!
