Things are slow here so I will venture a reply. Whenever someone says they found a Sansevieria at Home Depot or Lowes, I automatically think "trifasciata" and probably plain ol' trifasciata, plain ol' Hahnii, Laurentii, Compacta, or (rarely) Coral. Still, I always walk by the Sans display slowly hoping for a miracle.
Incidentally, Karole Brooks has S.Hahnii 'Pearl Young' for sale on her ebay site. It is listed under the name 'Starlight'.
Oh....Old Time Pottery had an ad in the paper here today for a new shipment of pots! Beautiful pots deserving of a nice clump of Sans.
And finally, euchre is the principal card game of choice for me. I like it because I only begin with 5 cards in my hand, so there are fewer choices to make. I only cheat when I can get away with it.
PS Has anybody talked with Michael B. lately? I'm starting to miss that fellow!
