    Wink Bc. Maikai 'Mayumi' & Bc. Island Charm 'Elizabeth'

    As some on here know, from time to time I lose my mind and order plants online. lol These looked amazing so I bid and got two plants. I've done this before and got stung bad, but this company had a great rating so I thought I'd try. I'm impressed...the shipping was fast, and although some of the roots on Elizabeth looked iffy and there was icky looking potting bark covered with web stuff (i'm so used to that anyways!)...but overall for what i paid they are great. Tomorrow i'll do the Maikai...but as you can see I don't think there will be much work to that looks fabulous!

    First; The two when they arrived.

When it opens we'll all find out which one it is as it's tag disappeared long ago...the tag you see is in there for me to write on when I figure out what it
