    We'll be bringing many crotons like last year. Also, because there's no official Palm Society Sale anymore, I will be bringing palms as well and bromeliads. And other tropical goodies......

    It's picture 46 in Jose Lopez's album in the Members section. Faster to direct you to that than to go take a picture. We have it from two sources - Trinidad and Hawaii but no name unfortunately.

    The first Cornelius I've seen in person. It's a beauty that I think I need for the Moose Land. ;)

    Scott - I love this croton. A well grown one has fabulous unique colors and leaf shape. The eek emotioncon was used as a SCREAM :eek: Wish Palmpedia had an expanded emotioncon selection :p

    If you enjoy rare or unusual Staghorn Ferns - there were some available as pups. The pups kinda look the same. Here is a list of available species and prices one plant vendor had available for sale.

    I'm a sucker for the interrupted leaf type cultivars. This is a very uncommonly found Halloween. The plant is extremely healthy but could use a bit more sun exposure to bring out the orange colors. ;)
