    OH! I almost forgot Ryncostylus retusa! this foxtail has a very strange fragrance. Not pleasant, like old deodorant stained tshirt or mildew. Use eyes only!

    thanks, Ron. I didn't know what it was exactly. I'm growing it in a small plastic pot in bark, with a trellis for support. I seems happy!

    Very nice Tami. Too bad you don't have a name for the red catt .... that's a nice one. Had a seedling of Enc bractensens once -- alas it didn't make it to adulthood.
