Hello all.
If we do not hear from spiky mike soon we will have to pick a winner from forum comments.
I for one think Dianes Adro pictures are way out in front.
How do you get herrei that colour?

It's a very red clone, Brian - there are many forms of 'Herrei' some completely green. Top shelf treatment for the best colour too.

Yes, I think either a Mod needs to contact SpikeyMike, or decide what to do about the May competition.

(Thanks for your comment BTW!)
