    Back in October 2010, my vanH got whomped by a falling palm frond and looked like pic 1 after some trimming of the broken branch. Into two -1 gal pots and into the bag for the winter. Took them out a few days ago and they look like pic 2 and have some nice roots poking out the bottom. The parent plant is also recovering nicely with new growth.

    Good save Phil, especially since that old time variety is not commonly encountered. :cool:

    I remember when Mike Harris got one at a Searle Brothers Extravaganza. It is not on his list. We will have to search for it on Saturday. Hopefully it is still in his garden. ;)

    It was there. I am kicking myself for not getting a photo.:( It was looking real good.
