    Here's a seedling that happened on its own sprouting in a pot of calatheas. The leaves are recurved so it may have Ram's Horn or Recurvifolium in its lineage. I'm calling it Tangerine Twist. The pictures are of a cutting that I'm rooting.

    Very nice Marie ! :cool: I am a sucker for the recurved leaf crotons as there are few that fall into that leaf shape catagory. Hopefully it will be a steady grower and will eventually make it into some collections.

    Thanks for sharing. Great name in my opinion. :)

    I look forward to seeing this plant next summer when it's bigger and showing it's potential colors. Thanks.

    Chris,
    We'll be attending but not selling. We'll be selling at the Ramble the following weekend.

    I'm pulling a Moose here and resurrecting an old thread...

    How about an updated photo of this little beauty?
    Thanks...

    Peyton,
    Give me till the end of summer for the pic. Someone came by about 3 weeks ago to see it and we discovered it in the shade with little color. So needless to say, I've moved it but it needs a little time to look its best.
