It's one I've never been in although it may not be new. There were so many things I wanted, and I did not have a lot of cash on me. I had to put one plant back but I managed to spend all I had *Blush*

I got a couple more caladium.

A canna for the pond.

3 coleus

a small crown of thorns and a small staghorn for a new mount I have in mind.

Some kind of fern, it looks like a very small type of tree fern.

Also 4 of these small pots of volcanic rock, I guess pumice in English. They were cheap and light and they drain really well so some of my small succulents and cactus will go in them.

My favorite, which I don't know the name, is this which was labeled Watermelon Shell in spanish. The new leaves are very lime green, I really love it.

Of course, the ones I didn't get are still calling to me. I am going to have to return.

I think the Watermelon one is a Philodendron, there is an orange variety called Prince of Orange, and I had the lime green one but I forget what it's called... the leaves come out very light but then turn darker green. It's a neat plant and you got some good buys!

Thanks for the tip. It looks like most of the pictures I found of Philodendron 'Moonlight'. I'm going to post the pic over on the Aroids forum and see what they think.
