Usually when I respond to a post in this forum, I fail:)

I normally post an ID only to have it quickly corrected by someone who knows much more than I do... I hate when that happens.

So, here is what I need. I need someone to post an ID question of a plant that they already know. But, before they post it send me via private email as to the detail ID.

Also, this must be precision timing. Specifically, I must know exactly when the post is to be executed, so I can be a "first responder"

Clearly, since this forum is worldwide, answers appear 24x7 for ID greenery, so timing is important:)

Key word there is "quickly". Some folks like to pounce on whomever they perceive to be weaker! Try to remember that he (or she) who speaks first, fastest, loudest and/or with the most authority does not always have the correct answer. Just because they say they are giving you the only, absolute correct identification, does not always mean that they are correct. Don't feel bad an do not be discouraged.

I won't send a Tree-Mail on this subject as I am still waiting for the so-called experts to identify a plant for me...and waiting...and waiting. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

I like your idea, Frank - if only I had a plant that I could definitely identify...
