    My Tampa Fl garden

    Scott, Your garden is beautiful and you have a nice collection of tropicals. Your doing a good job with trying some nice tropicals that far north. Do you buy all your plants at local nurseries there, or do you have to travel around the state to look for hard to find stuff?

    Real Purdy Anthuriums

    Dean, Food for thought. In post #8, the first Anthurium looks like A. clarinervum. In the floral trade, one cut leaf sells for about $10 per stem. This is before it reaches the florest shop.
