I just ordered a plumeria called kimo on-line from a company in Maui, Hawaii.

What gets me now is that I was going to do it last June when I was in the Honolulu airport then decided not to. It would have been a lot cheaper.

I've got 40+ plants in my home right now and several are Hawaiian tropics.

I was amazed to see many of these plants growing wild alongside the road last year.

We took the tour called the Hana Maui. It was a long trip several hours which snaked up through narrow, torturous roads in the mountains. Our tour guide stopped us at a park for our prepared lunch and while there he fed several mongooses. They looked like fierce ferrets.

But, back to the plumeria: it's a root cutting with two tips. The website gives a lot of good growing info.

Thank you Emmy. Maybe I'll call my plant Emmy when I talk to it. Anxious

When we visited an orchid factory on the big island last year they had an orchid valued at $20,000.00 on display. It had won an award. Actually I hadn't thought it was that pretty.

I hope it grows into a big plant because that means it's happy and healthy. A happy, healthy plant IS beautiful.

Have you ever seen when your plants get "sick" how skinny and scraggly they become?
