    Rob,

    You have some of the nicer varieties, how many total in your yard do you think you have?

    Yummy,
    I'm especially fond of that "Mosaic." Is that a hard one to find?

    No, not at all. If your passing through in the near future, I think I can "break" you off one.

    Jeff, how to you root cuttings? I have failed on a few attempts. I tried doing what I do for Plumeria. I have some plants from you I got a few years back that grow great in SoCal. I want to propagate these.

    Thanks Jeff,

    But "passing through" is probably not going to happen. Any passing through we do in the next few years is probably going to be in the other direction. And going west from here is a long way to your place. :)

    Don't you have to let Plumeria sit for a few days before trying to root them? You definitely, do not want to do that with crotons.

    Rick,

    If you can remind me, I'll bring you a cutting to your meeting. Actually, as the host, I think I have one rooted and will bring that for you.

    Thanks, Jeff. Let me know if there's something you're looking for, I might have it.

    Hi Angela,

    Just don't know. Travis thought he was going to get to come home in July. Which is now not going to happen. Sept. is already a no-go he was told because his group is flying over to the Big Island to train for the month. So, he's again shooting for August. If he can't come then, we just might have to wait until Christmas for him to come home. Oct. and Nov. are not good months to travel because of plant sales. So....it's not looking to good. Either way, Andrea would not be able to come ( to many animals to feed,etc.).

    I haven't even looked into flights to Honolulu from here. I wonder what that would cost(?)

    Rob - I don't have some of these, can we hook up? I only have 80 cultivars right now. I am sure your collection has grown much since this post? ;)
