Very kind words, Barb. Thank you, and you're welcome.

There is a lot of personal satisfaction to be gained by helping others, so I feel like it's a total win-win situation. A very generous woman helped us a ton when we were starting to grow, and now it seems it's our turn to "pay it forward".

As far as the soil goes, I think we got it at Lowe's... LOL. Patio Plus, probably, with a few minor amendments. But you are right about one thing... California has some good stuff!

Thanks again for the sweet comments.

I would like to echo those sentiments. Randy has been extremely generous and helpful, as well as everyone else on this forum with their excellent information and advice. I would just like to say thanks! The good people here in the Passiflora forum are among the nicest you can find.

Thanks so much Barb. That's sweet of you but I have to say I've gained much from you and the others you mentioned as well. You and Randy I've known for a while and I recently began corresponding/trading with Crystal. I thoroughly enjoy "talking" with all of you. I love that plants I pass on can continue to be shared with others as can the plants that are given to me. I really can't think of anything else that can be enjoyed by so many people.

Mark and Karyn are indeed generous with plants and knowlege - I have seen their postings over the years. I will add that there are so many others who helped get me hooked and addicted to tropicals - THANKS, all!
