Ana - the historical tidbits are from a presentation I made to the Tropical Fern & Exotic Plant Society. The info was collaborated from various sources. Lamar - The words are mine. The photos in posts #2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 were also part of the presentation. The plants are also mine. This should appease the literary police - although this is not copyrighted material. Ana - Here is the little Nervia you gave me - looking pretty darn pink in my opinion.
