Thanks Moose! I love the coloring on this one. I am partial to pinks and oranges and this has a color inbetween the two if that makes sense. Very different. Truthfully, I use very little fertilizer. I think I might have thrown a little palm fertilizer its way last year, but mostly I use organic stuff (manure, alfalfa pellets) or nothing at all. I don't amend the soil, but I do pile a lot of oak leaves, and when I have them, recycled wood chips on top of the soil as mulch. This one is a slow grower so far.
I see nervia is on your wanted list! Can I make you a plant? This plant is very short (less than 18 inches, but I can make you a small one). I am going to try hard to come to the April 28th meeting and I don't have a lot to offer since I have few plants and mostly common ones, but I'm so happy to have one someone wants! Please let me know. Thanks.
