Not much interest in Sansevieria on the C&S side, but somebody has to appreciate a bargain.

Selenecereus urbanianus monstrose form, already shown on the C&S forum This plant came from San Francisco to my friend's nursery and spent a month there before I got it.

Sansevieria cylindrica also from Grow

A variegated Ficus elastica which was on the mark down table at the nursery for $6 :D
Image Image

and Sansevieria patens aka "Ed Eby," another Grow find

PS Foxy how's the pothos N'Joy doing? Toni showed me a picture of hers and it's growing by leaps and bounds.

Nice finds, Mentha! I do like Sans. I just don't have the room to grow them :(

My pothos N'Joy suffered a little set back, but now seems to be recovering nicely. I still have to put together a little package for you. Hopefully this time I'll remember to add a gift for the kitties. I meant to do that the last time but forgot :oops:

Foxy.

Don't worry about it, whenever you think about it. As for kitties, it's yet again time for a trip to the pet store. I keep saying this and things end up happening, but this time Pretty is going to the vet and no more kittens for us. Seeing is believing though. I just can't go through a major kitten loss again. I no longer want to be in the cattery business. The last time almost killed me, we lost 12 kittens in two weeks to feline destemper!

Pretty is not is a fickle cat, we tried to give her steak tonight and she refused. Handful would have been on it immediately. I think I gave my friend the wrong cat. I really miss my Handful.

I got that same variegated plant this year, at least it looks the same. I really like it and it's an easy one to grow so far.

I'm glad you're getting your cat spayed. That will be much better for her and for the cat over population. It's too bad the kittens had to go through distemper. We lost one to that and saved the other one and it's something I never want to see again. Just remember that the virus can stick around a long time, so if you have any other unspayed females, you could put more kittens at risk.

I lost my last variegated ficus because it was too big to bring in so I put it on the porch right next to the heater intake, which stays pretty warm during the winter, but it wasn't warm enough. It was such a pretty plant also.

it's really an easy one to grow . But what a pity is that I have no room to grow them.
