Not bad for a start Ana:) That's quite an improvement, but.……..Stay tuned for Round #2
 
Well, I guess I should be happy with improvement. Those were tough for me. Although I had the Thomas Edison and changed it at the last minute because of the wide midrib in the flush. Now I see I shouldn't have- it made me miss two. The last Raphael was silly too. I just knew you probably had a Thea in there somewhere.:)
 
Alright, it's a new day, but no more. Someone else take a turn or give us the names outright- my kids are home and too much I want to do!

a)Probably Geisha Girl, but might be Norwood Beauty. Too little of plant or scale to make a good guess.
b)?Royal Flush- you know I have it in the brain
c)Bimbo
d)Mosaic- again, too little of plant shown
e)?
f)Freckles
g)Glen Roof
h)Joe Friday
i)Chief
j)Mrs. Snyder Disraeli, maybe Goldfinger and others
 
Great pics Randy.My guess for D is Davis 87 and for F I am am guessing Tan Wee Kiat.

Randy - there has been some discussion that Hot & Steamy and Waterfall are the same cultivar. I am from the camp that they are distinct. Waterfall is slower, has larger leaves and even more pink coloration. At least that has been my experience.

Do you have Hot & Steamy? What are your observations relative to the above mentioned characteristics? They would be confusing unless you were growing both cultivars IMO.

I've found the opposite :confused: My Hot & Steamy is way slower & pinker than my Waterfall.
DSC_0014.jpgDSC_0006.jpg Photos from this morning Waterfall left & Hot n Steamy on rt. :cool: Mmmmmmm:roll eyes:


Side by side there isn't much difference. Could they be the same? Mine have different lighting conditions.

I agree Randy - it must be lighting conditions. I know that you are diligent like myself keeping up on your crotons nutritional requirement. I have to admit that the Waterfall has been accelerating its growth habit. Still by no means fast but much faster then a couple of years ago. Here is an updated photo from Saturday, August 9, 2014 and looking distinct from Hot & Steamy in my opinion.
