The calls have been made, and the Bingo's have been called! We now are waiting for the prizes to be picked. The Bingo calls are as follows:

1. imadigger
2. lbrabec
3. EarleG
4. dispatcher1
5. froggies_girl

I will put the Bingo persons name next to the prize below, as the prize numbers are chosen.

Bingo prizes:

lbrabec * $10.00
EarleG * $25 or $25 gift certificate to vendor of choice
Imadigger * Surprise
froggies_girl * plant or plants
dispatcher1 * gift basket - containing 1 av, self watering pot, and other items


Thank you all for a great game! Maybe we can have an organic free game (no plant prizes) in January or February . . . get ready for the next season?

It has been my pleasure to make the calls for this game! You're a great bunch to play with!

Nichole

It was . . . it was my favorite - Irish Flirt . . . the heat got to it early this summer . . . I'm going to send scouts out to the state violet show next month to see if they can find me a good sized one. I can get a nice starter of one from a vendor here in town, but I'd like to have a bigger one, if I can . . .

The mini avs are not as fragile as you think. They can take a lot of abuse and come out thriving and blooming their hearts out for you. They really are tough little things. Don't be afraid of them.

I'm not afraid of miniature Violets and I totally agree with what you said about their toughness. I do grow some micro mini Sinningias unenclosed and they're loving it. but I'm still in the experimenting stage with Violets. I love them but they don't exactly love me back too much. Trailers seem to be the ones I'm most successful with so far.

Thanks for the offer, Earle but I think that Chicago Summers are just too harsh for them.

P. rosettifolia collapsed within a few days, followed by the others within the next ten days...

It's funny that NONE of my Streps have had any complaints but a little bit of leaf damage in the same conditions with triple-digit-temperatures that even made some Episcias croak...

So, I guess, I'll have to resort to looking at other people's Pets... LOL

I have never grown pets, and I can't grow streps at all. I either over-water, or under-water. I have no trouble with African violets and many thanks to Olaf, I have sinningia gutata. It's growing under lights, but I think it's becoming leggy. I'm tempted to cut the top off and try to root it. Then place it right under the light fixture. Maybe that will help. But first I want to see it bloom. LOL

S. guttata is leggy under lights? That's hard to believe. I have mine growing in an East window and it's happily growing and blooming and not one bit leggy - even in the ever decreasing daylight here in Chicago... Same batch of seeds. You can definitely cut the top off and root it. No problem at all. Eventually that will be necessary but not this soon...

These are three seedlings in a 4" pot:

Hi Lynn and Olaf,

My Pets are surviving in a situation of benign neglect. I find that the less care I give them the better they do and when they flower, the show is well worth it. On the other hand, I am killing every Strep that comes my way and I have one Sinn battling for its life. Yet, strangely, the AVs just keep flowering. Go figure! The picture is P. 'Shortnin' Bread.'

I went and checked my lights. I think I found my problem. One of the bulbs was out. I am going to have to change it. It seems that there is a connection problem. That may be the problem. Or else I expect it to grow like a violet with leaves very close together. I took a picture and it's in a 2 1/2" pot in a light mix. There is another seedling in the pot. I'm going to wait until I see flowers before I cut off the top. LOL. I'm patient.

Hey Earle!

This truly is funny!

Almost all Sinningias are weeds for me. I grow some of my micros undomed without any problem. So are Kohlerias, Primulina tabacum, Diastema vexans and some others. Episcias struggle, Streps and Violets are doing alright and any Petrocosmea or Columnea I have ever touched has died a slow, agonizing death...

The slightly contorted stem is actually mostly my fault and the plant doesn't look too leggy. Once you changed the bulb, watch S. guttata take off and bloom. :)

Oh, btw: I just noticed buds on "The Sinningia who thinks she's a Kohleria" - S. nordestina...

Check out the flowers on Alan LaVergne's website:

http://www.burwur.net/sinns/4norMain.htm

I hope that mine won't blast their buds for one reason or another...

Eileen,
Under lights Sinningias can take a lot of light.Some of mine are only a few inches under my lights.

I have only managed once to NOT blast buds on a Chrysothemis and that was C. friedrichsthaliana growing totally pampered and enclosed. Again: Miss ONE watering and the buds are toast...

Thanks Celene! I just love micro minis. Just a few minis ago I started another batch of Sinningia muscicola ("Rio Das Pedras") seeds fresh from the pod. I have another one of the same species that I've sown a few days ago and another pot of Sinningia pusilla...

We normally don't get the first frost until mid November, but not this year! It's in the 40's at night now. It'll be one of the cooler trick or treating nights, that I can remember, for ten years.

Yay! I had 4 out of the 5 called. My lucky day!

Oh, please, I don't even want to think about flying in snow. The first flight I was going to book only had a 30 minute layover in Charlotte, NC. Even though it would be great to jump off one plane and get right on the next, I had to stop and think, "What if there is a delay?" So, I chose the flight with a longer layover. When I fly home, I'll be flying from Philadelphia, so that one's got me worried? But, whatever will be, will be!

Once Jannich confirms each Bingo called, the Bingo person will get to pick a number between 1-5. There is no guarantee that the prizes listed in the first post are going to correspond to the numbers picked . . . I have a very technical way of assigning a number to prizes, so don't let the list fool you any . . . ^_^

I just received my 'Surprise' prize from jamiew. What a terrific surprise it was. Jamie sent me six African violets:
Cupids Jewel
Booman
Opt. Evergrace
Opt. Little Maya
Opt. Little Amethyest
King David
And a bag of Volkmans15-30-15 continuous fertilizer.
This was a great surprise package. Unfortunately the person who delivered the package, tossed it from the street toward my driveway.
The box ended up upside down and the potting soil was all over the place. I have them sitting in a tray and I'm brushing off the mix from the leaves. The ones that had flowers, flowers all smashed. It was still a great prize.

jamie-thanks so much. I'll take good care of them.

I received 4 beautiful AV's from Earle! Absolutely beautiful! Huge plants - one with unusual "curly" leaves. All are adapting to their new home. Thank you, Earle, for being so generous and sending such awesome plants.

I'm sorry to say that it may be next week before I can send my prize. Having trouble with my 13-year-old failing 3 classes at school. He lives with his dad and there is not much structure in the home. So, I am spending a lot of time trying to keep on top of him. Also, my mom was admitted to the hospital today- atrial fib and very high blood pressure 190/130. They kept her and her blood pressure was dropping and her heart rate had stabilized when I came home earlier.

Thank you all for a great game love, julie

I am so sorry. My mom is still in the hospital. She is continuing to experience atrial fib daily. The docs have switched her meds and still trying to get her stabilized. Between her, taking care of her plants and animals, and my own things, I barely have time to breath. Mom is in good spirits; really wants to come home. But they have to get things stabilized before they will release her. I hate her having atrial fib. Last year, we had quite a scare when she had one and her heart rate dropped so low it would set off the monitors. Don't want that to happen again.

I am slowly getting things organized. Will get my prize out on Monday. love to all, julieanne
