WOW I have not seen most of these plants before... Very weird to see live plants in a model forum (in a good way).

I find it interesting to see what friends who have a common interest also have different hobby.

I can tell you take care of them very well. :thumbup:

funnily enough i've posted these pics in a variety of forums to try and find out what the unidentified ones were. I just said to the wife last night how bizarre it was that of all the forums, it was the figure modelling one where I got my answer. I guess it's not that strange that folk who share one hobby will also share others.

I would guess in Texas you must have some interesting wild succulents? Do you get saguaro there or are they from further west?

Hi Pityak,

I'm embarrassed to tell you I have no idea what kind of succlents we have here in Texas. However, In the botanical garden of Fort Worth (Dallas/Fort Worth) area, there is a huge succlent garden there. I only know that because I take girls on dates there before. :lol:

haha and why not! I used to live in a place that had a cool tropical butterfly house, just like a big greenhouse with all these butterflys and reptiles roaming and flying free inside. Guess what I used to do there :-D

PS LOVE those helicopters!
