    I read somewhere that Madam Fernand Kohl flowers a lot, and was a favorite breeding stock of Aubrey Christian for that reason...

    And Rheedii rarely flowers?

    I need some more floriferous crotons if I'm ever going to get much seed.

    Anyone out there needing to cut back their Madam Fernand Kohl?
    Or have an extra rooted cutting or airlayer I can buy?

    Peyton,

    Your absolutely right, Madam Fernand Kohl seems like it's always flowering. Another great croton to use for breeding would be Monarch, but much,much harder to come by.

    Stoplight tops the list for me
    Irene Kingsley, Rudy Bachman...... and in the mix are a few of the unknowns.
    However those seeds always seem to disappear :mad:

    I recently wrapped a bit of net around a stoplight flower stalk and presto.......18 seeds.
    :D
