    Strange P. esseriana

    Hello, A few weeks back I ordered two P. esseriana. They arrived with much longer leaves than any of the P. esseriana I had already and the leaves were smooth, not upturned.

    My new Obsession

    Although I'm still (and probably always will be) deeply into this CP thing, the Cartoon Network's late night shows Inuyasha and Big O are distracting me to the extreme. I love these two series sooooooooo much. Lately I've been glued to my TV every night. It's very hard to wake up early in the...
