    Ana, Looks like what I have as Superstar. When I posted photos of mine the experts agreed it was Superstar.

    Hey Scott, thanks for answering. Can you post your plant again so we can compare? I hope some of the experts will chime in this time. Please, somebody!:p

    Anna, The plants are still rather small as they were from "Angel Plants" this summer at Lowes. I included a photo showing the pinkish tint that is now appearing on the older leaves underside. Here is another underside leaf photo...

    Scott, they both look very similar to me. I really wish others would come help us. I'm so frequently wrong, I don't feel I can say, and I'm not familiar with the cultivar. Anyone?

    David, your plants are gorgeous. Also, your friend's plant certainly looks like a President Reagan to me, but like I said, I'm frequently wrong. It is huge! What conditions is it growing in? My oh my.

    You're right, there is something special about that mammie, and that Pride of Naples is really nice also. Please keep showing us more!

    David, I have had the plant a very long time also, I have wondered about the name. I got it at the county line on US 1 at that Vietnamese fruit stand. If you remember it north of Ft. Pierce.

    Ana - I checked the Wiki regarding Phil's Colin Kelly. The other photos are of my plant when I first got it. It came from Jeff Searle and was growing in the shade house. As time has progressed, my plant is getting heavier shading as the canopy has grown. It does not look the same as the original photos in the Wiki. Phil's has alot more coloring, which may be a result of more sun exposure or growing conditions. The leaf shape looks about right. Are they the same cultivar?

    Probably, maybe, yes, definitely, a different form, could be, kinda ... onward through the fog LOL :D

    David, I hope you're going to the Glocks in a couple of weeks. Bring all the ones you need id's for and they will get some attention, and you'll hopefully get some answers. Then we'll have more entries for the wiki!

    Today's entries:

    Nervia-Ray Hernandez
    Rubyii-Harold Lee
    Cardinal-Harold Lee


    **Does anyone have Harold Lee's email? The one at the beginning of the society page doesn't work. I'd love to email him to try to get him to come back!
