Thanks Marie - coming from you that is a valued compliment. But I can't claim all the credit.Spectacular! How old is that plant?
Stan, I have often commented that the number one difference between growing things here and in SoCal is the humidity. There are many differences, but I could write a lot about all the pluses that a higher humidity lends to growing most tropical type plants. Of course, as life in general, there are some drawbacks. But all in all, humidity is a big plus.wow- You got that right. Only the UC Berkeley greenhouse collections has the giant Anthurium species. Its hard for me to imagine a climate so warm and so wet and humid that those plants grow..on their own.
I was looking Dean,at a photo I took of a Plumeria plant I bought at HD that had come in from Hawaii. Originally the Plumeria stems were almost white and covered with- get this- a black lichen that branched. Two year later,the Plumeria was green stemmed and not a trace of Lichens.
