Yes that is part of it.  It must have some of the "better charistics" I
am looking for, and be able to display those charistics, consistantly. I
have for example a five year old plant with yellow wdged leafes that
form elongated cups.  This has for the last three years been a plant
that looked really special.  I named it Panhandler.  I moved it to a
"new" location last year, and noe I have awfull "drawstring" problems. I
doubt I will spend much more time or space on this one.
