hmm... proteioides x auriculatum.............well, supposing the cross "took"... can you imagine how long you'd have to wait to see that flower??!!     My auriculatum is nearly 30 years old and no sign of a flower bud yet  :'(

There has to be something in the will.

Ho! Ho! That's a good one......and speaking personally, I suspect that that is ALL there will be in the will  :-[

Wonder who will kick off the fight for my R. auriculatum, when the time comes? ::)

Seriously, this is not a stupid idea. So many fine and rare plants are bulldozed or otherwise killed off when their owners shuffle off and leaving specific plants to suitable recipients should be encouraged. A friend of mine has made a list of 30-something plants she wants to go to various people and her executors, in time, will set that in motion. Thankfully, though 88 now, she is still hale and hearty.
