If yes, then add these to the wiki, please. If not, what is it?
I think this is the one that John Bender called Excalibur. Rocio is the name that nurseries in Central America use in sending up liners.
I found this in Home Depot around 8 years ago. Three plants in the pot.
Bump...Any other input? Neither name is featured in our WIKI yet.
Ricky, I believe I have the same plant. Also picked up at a box store.
It looks like one I have that is labelled 'thai mammey'.
Well, there's no Excalibur in the book and no Rocio either. If you want to put it into the wiki, I've been telling people it's the American Thai and that I call it "Bang-a-Gong".
I'm not sure about the Excalibur name, so if anyone can add some information or history, please jump in. I do know this is a croton that's been in the trade for a few years now and is called Rocio. Not sure on where this name originated from either.
Here is my young plant that needs more sun. I am thinking they are the same. It was mis-labeled petra like most of the box store plants.
Put these in the wiki as Rocio. I think we have to take the attitude of "prove us wrong" with some of these varieties.
And if a plant is known in the trade as 'Rocio' and the name is widely used, then I think it has to recognized as such until, as you said, someone can prove otherwise...
And then 'Rocio' can be listed as a synonym.
How about one of you guys take a shot at adding them? I posted the tutorial in the sticky.
Jim Glock even learned to upload today to the Krakatoa page. I double dog dare ya
OK, the double dog dare made me do it...
Some pages in the wiki have larger thumbs, like AFD 5 for example:
while other pages have the normal, small size thumb, like:
I had been using the larger thumb size, which I kind of prefer...
I'm thinking perhaps we should standardize to one size thumbnail - what do y'all think?
Change away if you want. Me personally, I don't care. Whatever the masses prefer. Would larger thumbnails slow down the page load?
Good question - I can't tell any difference on my connection...
Looks like the sport I removed from my Mammie (Mammy) last summer.
Off topic here but, The book list the spelling as Mammie, but it is in our WIKI as Mammy. What name is the original spelling? I say we need to go with the book in the WIKI as Mammie, also known as Mammy.
Wondering. Does this appear to be the same croton. I've had it for years and is most attractive in the garden. Chris
Certainly looks like mine! Nice begonia too!
Guess I should have read the entire post before posting pics. Where is the option for downloading to the wiki anyway?
I put a tutorial on how to post pics. It's a sticky at the top of the forum. PM me if you have problems.
