Day 116 - He Was Just Too Good Looking To Be Wearing Plastic

I walked past him as he casually stood by his booth at the trade show and I thought, "I wonder if he realizes that I'm staring at him!" So I stealthily slipped beside the gal working in the booth with him and quietly asked if she could tell me his name. "Who are you asking about?" she loudly proclaimed. "Him, over there in front of the desk," I sheepishly pointed. We walked toward him and I suddenly realized- ---- he was wearing plastic!! There he was surrounded by this gorgeous calla lilly, a hot cyclamen, saginella was practically hanging off him and he was so gorgeous that I didn't even notice that he was standing in a cheap plastic pot until I tried to pick him up. Wait - what did you think I talking about?! What is the name of that gorgeous fern-like plant in the middle of this pot. Any guesses? And don’t anyone tell me it's Fabio!

I have found that people at trade shows don't always know the names of the plants in their displays - unless it is a mass display of some sort of rose.

It actually looks a lot like my Rabbit's Foot Fern (Davallia fejeensis), Barbara. Not quite as dark green, but the feathery fronds are very similar.
