Re: holli/tropical

  Not all your plants are ready to kick the bucket.  One of them is still alive here.
Last year during a storm a pole lamp fell smack dab in the middle of it
and split the main stem in half almost to the dirt line. Figured it was
a gonner, but it dropped a few leaves and continued to grow and heal the
crack. I brought it to the office over winter. Got all yellow leaves and
nasty. Looked like dead branches with about 4 leaves on it by spring
when I set it out on the deck. It currently has a bunch of tiny leaves
sprouting everywhere on those dead looking branches.... amazing.

  Hey Holli
I'm sorry to hear about the health situation there. I remember you
were having some issues when we used to talk a few years ago.
You aren't the
first to have an issue with hibs particularly the ones I handled. They can be
a bit touchy. You noticed! Especially true when you are distracted for more
than five minutes. Garden varieties are easier but still picky. Enjoy your
plummies. I have five now but they sure are slow to grow out this year. I'm
trying to root out a few more but they took a bad hit during the winter. I
had far too many plants in my little greenhouse and it was too humid for
them. Lesson learned...bone dry is the only way to go with them in the
Take care and best of luck to you and yours.

growing tropical plants there? How's it going? Sorry
to hear about the
weather there. 
I sure hope Chris is alright. Man, it's
been a pretty
violent spring hasn't it?

Hi David
Yep... have my Bananas,
ginger and pulmerias. no hibs ;( I dont have as 
many as I use to. Time
just hasnt allowed, and we have had a rough year. 
DH was in the hospital
for 2 mos and home for about the same..still isnt doing 
well..and I just had
ankle surgery, which didn't go as well either. We just 
hobble along here! 
I got so disgusted around the holidays that when I 
finally got a tree up, I
left it up, and it is still up. I look at it this way..I 
am ahead of the
Chris should be ok, just may be without power. I am not sure if she 
sustained any damage on her property. I hope we hear from her soon.
