Donna, I need some larger pots. I can't believe I've used all my pots up I had so many. Please save some for me. One of these days I'm going to get over there.

'Don't know if Barbara is going to get to this thread any time soon. She had the automatic sprinklers on in the greenhouse and was not feeling like getting out to see about them. Somebody inadvertently turned her hoses off in the greenhouse. She just discovered it and was trying to be nice...Augh! Nothing got watered for two weeks in this heat.

ginger newbie here...& looking at the top picture i notice that just about the whole torch is lit up (opened) whereas on mine, i get maybe 2 or 3 flowers open at once...is this because it's a young plant? Or not hot enough days? I do try to water them everyday...this is one a friend sent me from Puerto Rico last fall & it's finally blooming. Anyone know it?

Some species and hybrids consistently bloom in full flushes, where every bract flowers at once. Others only bloom one or two at a time. This is basically a genetic trait. Your plant looks to be a coronarium x coccineum cross. There are numerous types like this and it's often impossible to accurately pin down hybrid names. I
