The February monthly meeting had a good J many items of interest. A beautiful specimen of Paullinia thalictroides rivalled many ferns in! foliage; one might take it at first sight for a Maiden Hair fern. A specimen of the hybrid i Amaryllis "Amy Lincoln," showed that this new class of plants has elements of great popularity. As indicative of good winter flowering greenhouse plants Chorozema cordata, Francis-cea exima and Dendrobium nobile may be noted mong others present; though the last, a pretty orchid, requires a rather warm greenhouse. It may be well to note in connection with a double Poinsetta exhibited, that Mr. Kinnier, the grower, found it a very useful "cut flower" plant, from the fact that scarlet bracts can be had from it six weeks after the single one had gone out of use.
