Hey everyone!
I'm on the look out for a new tropical tree. I live in Delaware zone 7 so it will be outside when the weather is nice in the spring/summer but inside for the cooler/cold weather. Just like to hear what people's favorite tropical is and any suggestions.

Right now my indoor setup is 4, 4' T12 32 watt 6500K color temp bulbs side by side on the couple ficus I have now so I'm looking for somethin that would be ok with that.

Thanks and am looking forward to hear suggestions!

Kingsman ficus, aka tigerbark ficus, ficus microphyllia(sp?), I have had pretty good luck up here in 5b.

They grow well, and the leaves reduce easily, Jim Smith down in Fla.(Durastone nursery) is a good place to get probably any trop you want, the site doesn't reflect what they can do for you at pretty good pricing, so call or email them with your thoughts on what you want and they can most likely set you up. No affiliation by the way, our club got a bunch of trees from them, and all were quite happy.
