Starting a new thread for Summer indoor blooms and vines!

My indoor vines are starting to bloom and many of them are getting lots of buds! Yay!

This first one is from Dany. It's Q1044. A beauty for sure! Thanks so much, Dany, for sharing seeds from that one! I really like it!

Thanks, Helena! My indoor vines are doing great. The outdoor I nils ... well, not as pristine as the indoor ones... I am liking growing them under lights so much better! My species plants like the outdoors though, so those I will plant outside. ;-) They are tougher than the I. nils.

I have some new bloomers today!

This one is from Karen2005. This is her Purple-Blue Blizzard (PB12). I grew this a few years ago and always liked it a lot. I've been meaning to grow it again and am glad I did! Beautiful first bloom. It is one of those vines where the blooms get better and more interesting as the vine ages. :-)

Here's 2 blooms of Karen2005's PB12 take today.

Thanks Jackie and Helena!

Only blooms I had today were on my Sazanami #2 from Onalee's. Solid blooms. Hmmmm ... They don't look like they are going to change at this point. Usually by the 3rd bloom I start seeing some pattern showing up. Isn't happening on this one! The blooms look very delicate and large for one grown in a 32 oz. container! LOL! I don't know if the seed came from my grow-out 2 years ago or from the Japanese seed packet. Likely from mine. Maybe a cross. With what? ... no guess here! LOL!

Thanks to Nick and Jackie concerning the blue blooms with the watermarks. I have no idea how that happened. Usually moisture causes those marks. I don't mist mine anymore. They are just as happy dry as they are with water dew on them. LOL!

Tony - I will. I am sure they will start blooming soon. I see buds on almost all of the vines. I counted them all yesterday and there are 32 different vines. I grew one seed from each person in the seed swap. So it shall be interesting to see what I get. :-)

Today's blooms included Dany's Q1044. The bloom was wilting as you can see from the edges of the petals.

Becky,
You have probably answered this elsewhere, but how much floor space have you devoted to indoor gardening? How many light fixtures do you have? Have you stayed with grow-light fluorescent bulbs? Do you water by hand or automatically? The pristine nature of your leaves and flowers is evident.

The picture shows the first bloom that came from a seed I got from Karen Burch. It wasn't what I expected. So I don't really know what it is.

Doug - I am not sure what that cultivar is, but there are some nice colors in that bloom in your photo! You should dmail Karen and ask if she knows. It might be a cross. The future blooms may produce some surprises. When I have stripes show up early in an unknown, I often get some really awesome blooms! Keep watching that beauty! :-)

I have two shelving units that were actually storage shelves from my garage. Two adjustable shelves on each unit. I have grow lights in the upper and lower light on one shelving unit and then I used Bright Outdoor Light tubes for the other shelving unit. I honestly do NOT see a difference in the plants at all. So I plan to just use the cheaper bright whites in the future when they need to be replaced. I water once a week. I water by hand with a long narrow spout watering can. I treat them just like I would if they were growing outside. Fertilize every few weeks with Bloom Booster. Run the lights to match the outdoor sunlight.

The units are against a wall in a spare room. Mine don't take up much space. They are only 18" deep. But the two shelving units do run the length of one wall. They are plugged into a socket that is connected to the wall light switch, so I just turn them all off with the flip of a switch. LOL! I don't do anything else to them except praise or threaten them! LOL! When I threaten to toss them, they will bloom for me! LOL!

The angle above made the bloom look really dark and more of dark gray color. But here is another photo of the same bloom taken at a different angle. You can see the dark purple color instead.

Love all your blooms Becky, I love what the no Sora cross is doing. Appears it's crossed again with one of your vines last yr, very neat.

Jackie - You may be right. That Sora may have crossed again or a recessive gene is showing up! Whatever it is, it's sure attractive!

Helena - Yes! That NOID dark bloom is such an interesting color! I did a double take when I saw that dark gray bloom photo that I posted above! That is the F1, so it came true from seeds from the first vine I grew (indoors).

I had some new blooms today. This is Debra's from the seed swap. I hope she will let me know what cultivar it is?

The blooms on the Q1044 have gotten smaller due to the styrofoam cup. But it's still a real beauty! I love those lime green heart-shaped leaves! A nice cultivar!

Becky some amazing blooms from your vines. I love the bloom from Helenas sds and the pretty shade of blue from Karen2005, Danys Q # is special and the Weird Saz will be entertaining all the way up to frost.
I like the new color your Saz is wearing like it's not to be outdone.

I heard from Karen (gardener2005) about Sazanami and she said the same thing that I have come to the conclusion about that cultivar ... sometimes it comes true, sometimes it is a solid color, and sometimes it produces lavender instead of blue blooms. It's not completely stable from seeds to this day! But I love it and it is so worth growing out as many out as possible to get that true pattern on the blooms! It's stunning when you get those blooms!

I agree! I got very lucky and got some really nice vines and blooms this season! Can't wait to see all of yours when they begin blooming! I know it won't be long!

Becky, I still have 30 or more waiting to get out of the small foam cups. I have a couple with buds that look like they can't open. I hate it when that happens.
I hope I get blooms soon too, so tired of waiting.

Jackie - I suspect that when mine don't open all the way, it is because they are needing a deep watering. Yours might need more root room if they are ones that still need potting up. I hope you can those other 30 vines moved into bigger containers.

Thanks Helena! I encourage anyone to try a similar set-up as mine. The vines look so healthy and perfect. No bugs, no drying heat, no diseases. Just beautiful MG vines! And the best part ... I don't have to deal with the mosquitos here because most of my vines are indoors! :-) I hate mosquitos!!! We've been getting a lot of rain lately and the bugs are horrible now. Ugh!

Another new one bloomed for me today. This is one from Nicole (Lilimerci)! Really pretty bloom!

Helena - That is the BIGGEST kudo of growing them indoors ... no mosquitos! We've been getting rain every afternoon here for over a week now. The mosquitos are getting bad outside. Ugh! So it's so much nicer to just walk into my spare room and enjoy the blooms! LOL!

Been busy working so haven't been on the ball taking photos lately. But still manage to get a few shots sometime during the day.

This is mini bar rose! I didn't know if I would like this smaller type of vine, but it's really rather charming! I am trying to cross pollinate it with other colors. This is the perfect indoor vine because of it's compact size. This is the Bonsai size MG!

Becky I've had a few open with split petals too, very aggrevating.
I don't know whats causing it. Gorgeous speckles.
Please send us a pic of the no Sora cross when you can. I love the bloom it's making.
