Sue, thanks for your suggestions re my neo Gunpowder? I guess for now it will continue life as a NOID. I have had a couple of neos that flowered prematurely and wondered why Ö canít remember when I removed them though. I will have to make a note and keep a check on any pups that I have removed recently.
Wendy, so sorry to hear that you and Johnny have lost Max. He had a great life with you and heís up there in doggy heaven keeping an eye on you both. No doubt you will miss him for a long time and remember him fondly.
Ian, hope you manage to find your way around your computer. Hope you found some new plants on the way home too.
Nev, what a nice surprise finding advanced pups you werenít even aware were there on so many of your neos. I am sure you will have no trouble clearing out your excess plants. Your neo Bold Streak x McWilliamsii is certainly a different colour to mine, which is quite pink-purple. And thanks for the compliments on my neo Gunpowder (or whatever), it is a lovely plant.
Trish, Nev, the two Bold Streak x McWilliamsii plants in the pot are pups from the same mum, long removed. The one on the right has much wider and brighter streaks than the one on the left, so maybe a sport. I have been planning to separate them for a long time and will have to do it soon so I get pups from both. The pups from the one on the right might prove interesting.
Trish, I have to agree with you that while itís terrific to have friends and family visit, itís so nice when things get back to normal and peace and quiet returns. And I am feeling a lot better now, thanks.
Also thanks to everyone for your help with identifying my NOID neo.
