For some reason, that just seems like the right thing to do! :lol:

Seriously though,  what difference is there between the RPS 'black petiole' and the Bill Austin 'black stem'?   I have both, and they look identical as seedlings.

On a recent visit to SoCal I heard a comment that the 'black stem' had been sold by Rancho Soledad, these plants grown on Big Island, and thus not well suited for SoCal conditions ??

 Perhaps we shoud have a new thread?  I promise to put up photographs of my seedling plants! LOL !!  :mrlooney:

This is the Vakona Lodge version in SoCal (Dorian's garden). Looks good!
