    Thought I would put up some pics of my Milky Way. This is the plant that Lamar got at the TFEPS acution last year.

This has been a good grower for me, in plenty of bright light.

    Tim, the first time I saw Milky Way it was growing in full sun and the leaves were pale pink with white spots. There was no green on the leaves at all.

    Interesting, Marie. Could this be a good or inferior clone issue? Environmental factors? Evolution of the cultivar? This plant gets a lot of light. Maybe it will evolve as it ages? What is your opinion on this?

    My opinion was not solicited, but I think that Milky Way looks very, very happy. Singing
