    Cross-pollination of Mons Florin and Tiger Eye gave about 30 seeds. Three siblings among them seem to be promising…

    Thanks for the new postings. most of us live in south Florida and love to see new varieties from Thailand and your crosses from Russia keep up the good work

    Beautiful plants Sergey. The 3rd one looks like a Plaid Oak.

    Peyton,

    I’ll send you Tiger Eye.
    + your Jungle Queen and your seedlings are likely to be even better.:)

    Sergey..beautiful seedlings. Could you post a picture of Mons Florin in this thread for us. There is no picture in the online reference (http://www.palmpedia.net/wiki/CROTON_ONLINE_REFERENCE). Maybe you could post some pictures there. Thanks.. Chris....I did just look in the book and found it but it is not in the online reference. Anybody around here growing it?

    For scale, the boards underneath are a nominal 3" wide
