*waves* Such a lovely bunch of people here. I've been lurking for a while and will likely continue to do so. I like German microphones, Irish Whiskey and short walks on the beach.

On What Should I Name My Plant?

Peanut Butter looks to be a Geranium and, if you don't mind my saying so, could benefit from repotting. My great-grandmother's Geranium plants are still alive and well and being taken care of by family members.

I did recently receive a Dieffenbachia from a friend who told me it is named Goose.

In fact, it may well have been a 'pinner who pointed me to that article in the first place.
