Has anyone tried ordering plants from Bob Smoley's Gardenworld in Florida? Some of his Crown of Thorn plants, especially the Euphorbia x Lomi ones with the exceptionally large blooms look mighty enticing!

I have grown Crown of Thorn in the past and enjoyed their long blooming cycle, but blossoms were quite small. the E x Lomi appear and advertised to be very large. Anyone grown these?

I have a crown of thorns that was purchased with only the name as "Thai hybrid". It has orange flowers that are huge, and they last a long time. It's very beautiful. I'm going to check out this shop!

I have ordered plants from Bob Smoley's Gardenworld. They were very nice. I ordered a Hoya and some E. milli. Too bad I didn't see that E. x Lomi.

This is the one I bought that only said "Thai hybrid". Do any of you have an ID for me? I bought it about 12 years ago in bloom. I had it in the house in a bright window, and it's never bloomed until this year when it went into my new greenhouse! Nearly every branch tip has buds!

To Daisyl and plantmanager - Thanks for your responses. Heard from a member on another forum that her euphorbia x lomi was larger than desired for over-wintering indoors. Glad to hear some favorable comments about Bob Smoley's Gardenworld plants as I am quite impressed with his website. I should stop browsing various websites as I have a tendency to like everything I see. I operate on a low gardening budget and indoor growing space is limited. A large share of my gardening pleasure comes from growing plants from seeds.
