I'm easy I want them all! LOL I just got another one today when Iwent to springfield (again) I think, or at least I'm pretty sure it's a spade leaf philo, if I can find what my son did with the camera I'll take a picture of it
Yeah I'm pretty far gone!
I never thought of that...and did you see the price to ship it? I almost bought one then I say the shipping and I'm like no way she had a benie in the pic too which means it would fit in a flat rate box a medium one at that
oh yeah I got some new ones today on my to springfield to see my mom. I got 2 velvet leaf philos at Lowes (well Dad actually got those for me) one lime green kinda looking and an anthirum (sp) I have pics I took with my camera phone if ya wanna see
Mr. yellow is probably neon pothos, and the other is a bloomin' anthurium... I can't wait to see what color your spathes are. So far I have a white one (my son broke it before I could see it develop). I also have one that I haven't seen bloom. They are so, so, so slow when you are waiting for it. It's like watching for water to boil. It's putting on lots of leaves. Lots. But no flower yet, whaaaaaaa.
Well, looky at the base of the plant. If it has multiple growths, you can just divide it. Some only have one growth point, but should eventually branch off. I have also seen them grow pretty tall, and they root up the stem, to where you could whack a cutting, but I wouldn't until the new wears off. It's a pretty plant, so just enjoy it unless a division is just screaming at you :).
Lari Ann you're killing me I see that hybrid of yours up in DG...definately gonna have to balance the checkbook in the morning now! I couldn't live with myself if I didn't get one of your hybrids, and that one will go straight to my room where no one can breath on it but me! LOL
I've got one of those "rudolf the red nosed reign deere Philodendron" plants, minus the eyes and nose of course. Was on the property when I bought it. In a very bad place (hot sun and no water) and only ever one or two leaves, but a long stem. Just recently I finally got around to moving it to a better site so hopefully it'll grow a lot better. Don't know its name though.
Oh, I was looking and thought maybe Philodendron bipennifolium, and added another bunch of philo's to my want list, lol. Squamiferum looks better :). Well, anyway, at least now you know how to decorate your yard for Christmas. Googly eyes and pompoms, lol.
It's a pity we have such an impenetrable jungle of red tape between us, otherwise I could send you a cutting. I know our quarantine people go ballistic over plants. Seeds, depending on what they are, are not so bad.
I grew monstera deliciosa from seed. I was so excited about it :). Miss trina, you get the green and red flowered anthurium if the person offering it was serious. I'll try to find p. squamiferum as cheap as I can, and we can trade later. That way we don't blow money for the same plants :).
that is very pretty! yeah and I have deal to trade her some red for her white...I will check it tomorrow to see how many divisions I can make...It's definately root bound that's for sure! But that sounds good to me
well if anyone CAN figure out how to do that it's definately LariAnn! I bet even when she's sleeping her brain's still working! and even with as busy as she is, she still manages to answer my sometimes dumb questions without making me feel stupid that I asked...that's a very rare trait in people these days!
I'm not only working on blending the silverveined Anthuriums with the colored bloom types, but I'm adding perfumy fragrance as well. Patience pays; speed kills! Oh, and did I mention that I have a penchant for gigantic plants? They are in the works as well, but could be a few years off, unless I get lucky!! Can you imagine an Anthurium with 3 foot leaves and giant red blooms? I can see it in my mind already. . .
BTW, I can get an aroid to go from seed to blooming in about a year, a skill required in my line of work . . .
cool you're gonna have to tell me though are aroids easy from seed? I just purchased some P. selloum seeds online...this is probably the only thing I haven't tried from seed yet.
3jsmom3 and I were joking about leaves that big but blooms with all the colors! I can't wait until spring either cause I have fallen in love with you're hybrids but as we have an ice storm right now I don't dare take the risk...cause i'd cry...besides that way I can save for a little shopping at aroidia...LOL like I NEED more plants
Thanks for the compliments! Yes, I did draw all of the pictures myself, and my line of work is hybridizing new aroids (although I do also have a "day job"). So growing them quickly to blooming size is essential to my work.
sorta...here in Canton I live with my BF and our mixed brood of 5 teenagers...the place in Missouri is mine all mine and has been for a very long time, just has a little cabin big enough for my son and I, my safety net so to speak, might add some other cabins to it this spring so I can take all the kids up out to enjoy it with me this summer...as the BF and I are just past the 1 year mark together
