    Branka thanks for your kind words, ya I got my new camera last year, October after my D70 Nikon jammed (exactly 10 years) so I decided to buy another Nikon series since my macro lens is Nikon brand.Zain.

    Merillianum :
    the leaf span up to one foot and narrow leaf.

    Gokusingii:
    the leaf span just about 6 to 7 inches and broader leaf.
    Compact growth habit
    The other thing I always noted the throat of gokusingii even darker than meril.
    This is based on my observation Metek maybe somebody can add in another points.

    Not a fan of Cleisocentron, but this blue is really attractive.
