Many times the plant shop at Selby buys plants from other growers to sell in 
their shop and these are often not labeled. They do also sell plants that are 
propagated by division or seed from the collections. You can call the Selby 
Plant shop (try to reach either Linda Hoover, plant shop manager, or Bob 
Stickney, shop assistant) at (941) 366-5731 ext. 242. They may be able to 
tell you what was in the shop during the last week or two but if it was 
longer ago than that they may not know. I once worked in the shop and people 
would send me photos of the plants they purchased years ago and ask me to 
identify them! Not too easy a task with the Pachyneuriums, some of which are 
very similar and not readily identified by even an expert unless the origin 
(original collection locality from the wild) is known. There are so many 
hybrids in cultivation that even a specialist would not be able to tell you 
the identity if the plant came from some commercial source without 
trustworthy locality data.
