Post Sorry for never posting!
Over the last year or so I've really gotten heavy into weightlifting and outdoor recreation and have let the garden get rather unkempt. Now it's absurdly hot so I don't feel like going out there and instead head for the beach.

However, my surviving plants are all doing well. C. medullaris looks good, C. cooperi is getting enormous, both have fronds taller than me. My staghorn Death Star is coming along with about 3 times more foliage than last year and of course the dicksonias continue to chug along in their distinctly slow and steady way.

As soon as the weather is a bit more hospitable I'll spray the garden with Yard Guard and get out and take some pics. Maybe sooner than later!

I was ready to declare you and Tom deserters!. The verdict is out on Tom. And Maurice.
Its been a warmer then average summer here. As usual nothing grows as fast as I want it to,unless I don't want it to grow and then it does much more of it. Tree's.

Good to hear you are doing well Scott. Please do post shots, and what the hell, we ought to meet up one day soon!

Kev, wow, lilies, neos, and disas, oh my! Good to see so much in flower, isn't it?

Yes Stan, I've been AWOL from this board for a while now. Like Scott, my mind/time have been elsewhere - primarily on making a living. Most of my collection is still growing, albeit not exactly as I'd planned. The woodland garden at my neighbor's house is totally toast, as is his house. The big earthquake last year destabilized the old structure to the point that the roof literally exploded one rainy night last November. He made it out OK, but needless to say had to move. That left my garden in question. I talked to him and he said I could keep it there. Foolishly I listened and the demolition crew came in and trashed everything. Total loss. That put a damper on things for me.

I still love plants and have been focusing my attention (when not at work) on making more videos for my YT channel. I will post links to some of them if anyone is interested.

We are always interested Tom you make such wonderful videos.
I find it very annoying how every day life gets in the way of things we really want to do. :roll:
BTW the flowering Neo is from you and we have 3 buds coming on the other one, in shot, such wonderful scent at night.

Pictures when you have some time Scott :D
