    Nice looking but no air layering over here for a while - temps in the low 40's and high wind warnings - a great way to dry out crotons and encourage leaf drop.

    Mike, both plants are looking great. Did you get that as Czar Alexander III? The Czar Alexander I got from Ron is a completely different plant.

    Yes Czar 3rd ,I got it from Phil many years ago.I was going to throw this plant away as it looked like a dog for many years.I finally moved into a location that it gets direct morning sun and no light after 1pm and it has turned into a fabulous plant.I normally move them at least once before tossing and this one was moved twice before it began to shine.

    Great looking plants! Two plants that I bought from you at Phil's are looking great also.

    Wow, Mike, all your plants are looking fabulous! Thanks for sharing. It's been blustery here the last couple of weeks it seems. Cold and wind are not a good combination.
