Don't ever worry about sending comments or questions about anything 
plant-related to this forum. I think members of this group grow just 
about everything that can be grown. And you won't get kicked off or 
chastised... (...much. Right, Mary Sue?) We just concentrate for the 
most part on geophytes.

In any case, I *am* on the Pacific Rim and I don't think Manfredas are 
native here, yet I grow quite a few different species from Texas and 
Mexico, most of them obtained from Yucca Do Nursery in Texas over the 
years. And I know of a couple more people living here who want to grow 
them and have come by to see mine. Several of mine have sent up really 
tall scapes and will bloom in the next couple of weeks. The scapes are 
from 4 to 6 feet tall right now.
