Hi everyone.

Kayleen - I thought that plant of John's was somehow familiar, but didn't connect it to your plant Kayleen as I hadn't seen them before and wasn't all that familiar with them, nor did I pick up on the reversal of the variegations; it seems I'm not as observant as I used to be.

What I did remember though when looking at Kayleen's plant this morning was the name 'Regeloides' which is on the plant before that one. It seemed very familiar when I saw it and the name was "ringing bells" as well. When I checked my records I see that name has been changed to Nid. rutilans. I have Nid. rutilans and that's why it was familiar. I also see that the plant before it is a nice variegated form of Nid rutilans, so now you have both, variegated and plain. Looks like you have to write out another name tag now.

John - Nice pic's of your Nid. 'Raru', I noticed yesterday that one of my two plants of 'Raru' is in flower but the larger of the two isn't; this has me now wondering why? They were both same size pups from the same mother plant, they were both potted at the same time in the same mix, fertilised the same and are growing side by side? I guess there's always some question to try and answer when growing brom's.

All the best, Nev.
