Default Dwarf Variegated Namwa Pearl

How many people here bought one of these off ebay last year and how many still survive?

I still have mine but it's very slow growing because I can't give it much light without the leaves frying due to the almost total lack of color.

I've got 2 that I have had since July 2005. They are slowly (very slowly) growing and look okay but I will be 100 years old before they ever bloom.

Richard, are those from the same seller that sold all the TC's last year? They look really different than mine.

Mitchel,

I got mine from a person who was selling them on eBay but I actually picked them up when I was in central Florida. The person I got mine from was located around Ocala, Florida. I don't remember their seller's ID. The 2 plants look a little different from each other (one is a little darker green than the other) but the pictures don't show it all that well.

I bought one, but I overwatered it inside over the winter in Michigan. I wish I could get another one. if any of your plants shoots a pup I have first dibs!!! I've been trying to get a hold of another one on E-bay for a while with no luck. Let me know.

Thanks,
Carlos
