    • PRIVATE MESSAGING - IMPORTANT NOTICE   01/02/2017

      There has been some confusion regarding the Messaging System on PalmTalk - and what is private and what is posted publicly. I've been asked to explain the two. There are two forms of messages - what I will call "Private Messages" which are Private, and "Activity Messages" which are public. A Private Message is designated with an envelope icon. It is available at the top of every page (click it and use "Compose New"). It is also accessible by hovering over a User's name or Avatar and clicking the envelope icon. Or it is also available on a User's Profile Page - at the top - again, with the envelope icon. Anywhere you see this envelope icon, you can click it and send a Private Message. An "Activity Message" is public. These are the "What's on your Mind" and "Leave a Message on [User X's] Feed" boxes where you can leave a public message directly as a Status Update (on your Profile or Main PT Page) or on a User's Profile Page - which updates his Status Update and also posts on PT's Main Status Update Page. These are "Activities" and labeled as such on the Profile Pages.  What is confusing is that both options (Private and Activity) are available on a User's Profile Page.  Just remember, that if you want to send a Private Message, use the envelope icon link - wherever you see it. That will get you to the Private Messaging Center. Any other "Status Update," like "What's on your Mind," or "Leave a Message on [so-and-so's] Feed," is public. I would make it less confusing if I could, but I can't.

Hey everyone,

I stumbled across this pictures of a variegated Ficus lyrata a while back and have been trying to locate one to no avil :hmm: figured I'd share the pic, don't think many people even know this morph is out there - The picture is from a Japanese site.

In my opinion a stunning plant with great looking variegation, it is also supposed to grow slightly slower, but more compact and with very nice form.

If anyone knows where I can locate one Please Pm me!! :-D

Warmest Regards,

Wow, that is cool. I always wondered if there was a variegated F. lyrata out there. I have never seen any cultivars of it. It must be a very stable tree.

Isn't it pretty?! There is supposedly another cultivar called 'bambino' which is supposed to have smaller leaves and more compact growth, however that is an all green cultivar. I would also imagine the variegate to be very stable, Not if only I could find one!! ;)

Jc--

Awesome looking! I've never seen it before either.

RE: 'Bambino'--there is at least one compact, smaller-leafed form (green) of F. lyrata in the trade and landscapes here in SoFla. I haven't seen any tagged as 'Bambino' specifically, but you should be able to track it down locally (Homestead area).

Ken, I'll have to keep an eye out for the compact form, wouldn't mind adding that to my collection. But that Variegated cultivar is a must on my want list :P Lets keep those eyes peeled it's only a matter of time before someone finds one :P
