    Very, very nice Eddie! :cool: Welcome to the forum.

    Those are some excellent and hard to come by cultivars you got there. The way you have incorporated the names in the photos is awesome. I wish I knew how to do that. :eek:

    Please keep coming back with the visuals! :D

    My kids label everything to help me remember. I have alot of unknowns and are hard to tell what they are because of deep shade that has developed over the years.I have been taking cuttings and growing them out in higher light values to get back to original colors or close to what they were.If thats possible thats what I am trying.

    Another interesting coincidence kingeddie - your photos posted here look very simular to the ones posted on Johnny Shelton's facebook page. Even the name tags. :rolleyes:

    This was brought to my attention from another forum member. Did we meet at the Ramble? :confused: I was the person distributing information regarding this forum.

    Are these your photos? :confused:


    Hmmm ... :rolleyes:

    Just curious if you were standing around at the Ramble when I was talking with Dave Hickman about his old Thai Croton collection. Ironic his mentioning Dave Butler as the biggest a$$hole he had ever met. :eek:

    Dave, I would like to let you stick around and post some more of your nice photos. But every time I have tried, you have burned me. And I certainly can't let you stay when you "sneak" in.
