    I think you have a serious problem there, the lens is allowing too much color through!:)

    Well, I guess I should be happy with improvement. Those were tough for me. Although I had the Thomas Edison and changed it at the last minute because of the wide midrib in the flush. Now I see I shouldn't have- it made me miss two. The last Raphael was silly too. I just knew you probably had a Thea in there somewhere.:)

    Alright, it's a new day, but no more. Someone else take a turn or give us the names outright- my kids are home and too much I want to do!

    a)Probably Geisha Girl, but might be Norwood Beauty. Too little of plant or scale to make a good guess.
    b)?Royal Flush- you know I have it in the brain
    c)Bimbo
    d)Mosaic- again, too little of plant shown
    e)?
    f)Freckles
    g)Glen Roof
    h)Joe Friday
    i)Chief
    j)Mrs. Snyder Disraeli, maybe Goldfinger and others

    Beautiful plants, Randy, and thanks for the names. Yes, they were tough, especially since three out of the ten were unknowns.:rolleyes:

    Randy - there has been some discussion that Hot & Steamy and Waterfall are the same cultivar. I am from the camp that they are distinct. Waterfall is slower, has larger leaves and even more pink coloration. At least that has been my experience.

    Do you have Hot & Steamy? What are your observations relative to the above mentioned characteristics? They would be confusing unless you were growing both cultivars IMO.

    I've found the opposite :confused: My Hot & Steamy is way slower & pinker than my Waterfall.
    DSC_0014.jpg DSC_0006.jpg Photos from this morning Waterfall left & Hot n Steamy on rt. :cool: Mmmmmmm:roll eyes:


    Side by side there isn't much difference. Could they be the same? Mine have different lighting conditions.

    I agree Randy - it must be lighting conditions. I know that you are diligent like myself keeping up on your crotons nutritional requirement. I have to admit that the Waterfall has been accelerating its growth habit. Still by no means fast but much faster then a couple of years ago. Here is an updated photo from Saturday, August 9, 2014 and looking distinct from Hot & Steamy in my opinion.
