I always enjoy my visit with the kids and spending time with you and at Tropiflora was simply icing on the cake, Patty.
Yes, all my crinum lilies are those that I got at your house, mere seedlings then, but nice, large, healthy plants now. You can't tell it, but that crinum in the photo is about 3' tall and has a really thick base. I use five of those crinums out at the perimeter of our property, between the creek that is fed by overflow from our pond and the fenced pasture. I alternated these crinums with six white bird of paradise plants. In a year or so, I should have a nice border between my property and the pasture. Hopefully the cows won't eat my plants.
Melissa, I did indeed downsize, both in house and in plants. Between January and April, 2018, I sold or gifted well over 1000 plants. My plant total is a mere image of what I had a year ago. Perhaps the day will come when I will begin selling some plants again. Gosh, I have 200 plumeria and most of them really need good homes (off my property). Perhaps 'Tropical Plants & More' will once again live, but at a much lower level as before my move. I still have a knack for growing tropicals and unfortunately everything seems to grow for me. What was a single plant last summer has often become a dozen plants. I am cursed.
