Re: now another comment- was Happy Birthday Island Jim!

Had a couple from Ontario come into the nursery once that called every tall tropical--traveler's tree, white bird of paradise, schefflera--a palm. Had to take them on a golf-cart tour of the place before I could figure out what they really wanted.

I think you made a mistake by not telling the customer what she bought. Of
course how you phrase it is important. Something like - a lot of folks think
this is a philodendron, but really it is a pothos....and if you can point
out the differences would also be helpful.

Of course, maybe I am the only one who likes to be corrected....so in the
future I know what the heck I am talking about!

Have a great BBQ Jim, and those leaves on the Macodes are fabulous. Love
the Philo too! Someone came in the shop today and asked for a
Philodendron and I showed her what we had and she said no, that's not
it. Then she went to a huge Pothos and said, "this is the one I want"
and looked at me like I was an idiot for not calling it a Philodendron.
I wanted to correct her but I held my tongue..........

Glad Kitty-poops is getting used to the place!
