An unknown individual(s) trespassed the Moose Land and absconded with Pam Kiefert branches. The property has signage at all gates "no trespassing" so it may be construed this was deliberate. There are only 5 individuals who are legitimate owners of my cultivar Pam Kiefert. Lamar - acquired at the auction at Flamingo Gardens. Marie Nock - was given the first cutting to make sure it was established some place else in case something happened to the sport. Judy Glock - acquired in a trade for an Exotica Keith Hanks - also acquired in a trade George Zammas - acquired at the last auction. If you are offered a Pam Kiefert by someone other then the individuals mentioned above, then they have acquired it by unsavory means. Knowing the above folks, I have much certainty they would not sell a vegetative clone of Pam Kiefert, but would prefer to trade. The person(s) who helped themselves to my plant more then likely did it for pure greed, as Pam Kiefert is a sought after croton. What makes it even worse, they did not take a cutting but ripped down on the branches, causing damage to the main stem. Plus, by not taking a cutting, that branch could not sprout new growth. At first I was furious that somone would be so bold and greedy. Settling down, now I'm just very perturbed. Since I don't have a mist house, the branches needed to be long to support an air layer plus enough of a remaining stem length that new shoots could form. It was ready for air layers but I wanted it to look nice for the garden tour. The plans were to apply the air layers right after. There were only 6 branches of Pam Kiefert so only two air layers were to be made, allowing 66 % of the foliage to remain to maintain optimal growth. This is further disturbing as I have had many requests for this croton. Many friends have been patiently waiting. Now their wait will probably be delayed for another year. Still have some feelings like I have been violated.
