Well, it's just March 14th, but the weather outside is absolutely Beautiful, finally got some Brugs, moved up to the back Porch, next I can move to the GH
they look like they can sure use being outside, for some reason, a couple of them are really leafed out in the Basement, while others still look like Sticks
maybe it's the ones from really good stock

last year I tended my cuttings carefully and was waiting for the 'y' to form. Well, my only surviver is the big tall one that has new little growths all up and down the stem. It went outside today to enjoy the fresh air and 79* weather.
Is it time to begin the feedings?

Birdie you are not alone, I have grown Brugs for years, last year I had heart attache and my children convinced me to get rid of them as they were a lot of work, ( I had 97) well I MISS THEM so I tried starting more with cuttings, and seeds and each one have failed, and I have no idea why, I have 5 that survived including one that was named for me, but I need more cuttings, or buy some plants. I just can't give them up.

The biggest Brug killer in winter is a combination of cold temperatures and wet soil. This is the perfect breeding ground for the fungus that causes root rot. Brugs do better with a little benign neglect. I always seem to lose the ones I baby too much.

During winter dormancy, it is import that the root systems are strong and healthy. The energy stored in the roots is what is going to keep the plant alive during dormancy. Cuttings that were started late fall or early winter don't have much of a root system so the mortality rate can be high. The best thing to do with newly rooted cuttings is to keep them growing during their first winter. Provide temperatures over 50F. 50F should be the minimum temperature. Fertilize lightly and keep them under light to get good strong stems. You still have to keep the cuttings on the dryish side of moist because it is still possible to get root rot. Warmer room temperatures help against this.

Of course, you can go beyond benign neglect. I did that last year and the result was the loss of over 75 Brugs.

I started having a variety of health problems early August, 2010 that required hospitalization and couldn't care for my plants. I was able to talk the gentleman who helps me with the ranch to water my Brugs for me, but he couldn't do it often enough to keep many from dying. During one of those hospital stays I injured my back for which I had to have surgery late May, 2011. Because of a rare genetic problem, I have to avoid most pain killers and I ended up back in the hospital several more times this past summer. I mention this because it has a direct baring on the loss of over 75 Brugs. This was a bit too much neglect. What makes it more painful is that I bought them all. I'm out several thousand dollars worth of Brugs.

The loss this past summer actually had its beginnings last winter. We had a near record cold winter for this part of Texas. We had a rolling blackout early, early one morning. By the time I discovered the blackout, the temperature in the greenhouse had dropped to below freezing, probably for several hours. This is what my Brug looked like last March. All the Brugs along the outside edge died but most of the others came back. Because I couldn't care for them properly, they started summer in a weakened condition. Then in the summer, the combination of a record drought, hot weather and lack of humidity, my Brugs went into summer dormancy. Most lost all their leaves and branches. When it was all over and I counted up my losses, I had lost over 75. I overwintered a few that appeared to have some living roots. When I pull them outside later this month, I will have to check the roots again because so far only one of those has sent out new growth.

My back has recovered although I will have to rely on help to move the pots for me, but I will be able to go out and water and fertilize the survivors by myself. I mourn the Brugs I lost especially since many favorites were among those lost. The survivors are truly tough.

Well darn it, I just lost three of my new brugs to weather, I put them outside yesterday when they said we would get rain, and I was going out for the day, that rain turned into a mighty storm with LARGE hail that even closed the Interstate for an hour. and it shredded those brugs to pieces and smashed the pots, now the temps are down in the low 50s

I don't know much about raising chickens as my first and only attempt ended in disaster neighborhood dogs got into their pen but my son has about 50 of the Ameraucanas who are similar to Araucanas and also lay blue eggs in various shades. He must not have the pure breed because some of his chickens produce green eggs and various other shades.

I am so excited!!! on my war back from picking up the newspaper from the drive, a wondrous thing appeared before me. An old dead looking Brug stick (a Y!) that I actually had meant to discard...was sporting little baby leaves all up and down its "dead stick body".

I can't help but wonder if others ,long gone into the woodland garden area, had potential life remaining somewhere in a deep hidden cell. ;-( Oh well, now I have two and will focus on gratitude for them. Wonder what they are??

Birdie,
Never, never throw away a slightly dead-looking Brug! Check for feeder roots instead. As long as there are live feeder roots atill attached to the buried trunk, there is a good chance that the Brug will put out new growth. I've had some come back after being seemingly dead 6 mos. Just keep the root ball slightly moist to almost dry so you don't drown the roots and then wait. Only when the feeder roots are brown and falling apart can you truly say your Brug is dead.

I hope your baby makes a healthy comeback.

Is it possible that my first two brugs(planted from cuttings this spring) could already be getting ready to bloom? The Frosty Pink is only about two feet tall but definitely has a Y and the new growth is looking "different".
The Ecuador Pink, also from cutting this spring, is not quite at a V but is growing like crazy. Everyone says brugs require patience so I'm pleasantly surprised about the fast pace. Must be the heat and rain, in an area prone to drought this is a perfect spring.

Post #9128568

Judy,
Luckily, you received cuttings taken from above the mother plant's "Y". Your plants are behaving normally. The only growing tissue your Brugs have at this point is flowering tissue. Later, as your Brugs' root systems grow and mature, your plants will send out new vegetative growth from below ground. That growth will be straight and tall. That is the growth that tries your patience. Each cultivar is different, but some may grow up to 12' before they put out their first "Y" and bloom.

Never pinch out the tip of those vegetative growth shoots in hopes that they will branch and bloom sooner. The snipped shoot will branch but it will not set blooms any sooner. In fact, it will only slow blooming. The vegetative cycle is genetically set. Snipping the tips re-sets the cycle back to zero.

Enjoy your two beauties!

I water mine every morning, they look good, but are stressed, not a bud anywhere, I am sure when it cools down, both of us, will have plenty of Blooms.
for some reason, the Cerus has to be 3yrs old, before they Bloom.

Now I understand the Night Blooming Cerus parties to watch the bloom open. I used to have a rather large mature cactus in the Cerus family that bloomed a very big, very similar blossum...one night only. Oh how I have missed that annual show.

Oh Wow!!! That Red Orchid Cactus is breathtaking!! How is it propagated?? The leaves remind me of those on a Christmas Cactus. Also, looks to be a day bloomer...?

Sheri

ps: within 24*'s of feeding, my very tall double bloomer, it is leafing all up & down the main staff

that's great news, I sure hope you have Blooms soon, I think you can take a stem, let it dry out for a week, then plant it in soil, I had a Crown of thorns, that had a broken
stem, I put it in soil, it rooted, then I shared it with my neighbor, it's growing well for her, we finally got some Rain for the last 2 days, I have at least 4 Brugs with Buds
so hopefully soon, I'll have photo's

Looked closer today and buds are already formed, that couldn't have happened overnight, must have been there before. Maybe they did form overnight, our weather has been perfect for it: rainy afternoons and hot days. Everything is growing so lush, and just a little ways from here is drought. Thank my lucky stars.

glad to hear it, Congratulations, on your Buds, everything is lush here also. when rain isn't in the forecast, I water every morning at 7:30
it really does them good, so they can stand the afternoon sun, I also have a Plumeria about to Bloom, anyday now

I am hoping to see the first orchid cactus and the firstbloms of phicks cross I grew from a seed I purchased. no rain here so watering almost 6 hours a day total for all gardens. I don't water the grass out front as no one else does on our block. we all have burmuda out there. My back yard is lush because I am paying out the ying yang to water. I am even draining the washer rinse water outside now. insidebasement garden is where peach versi, milk n honey, and the phicks cross are. I have buds on betty marshall outside. Here is Kaitlyn, bless her heart, she blomed all winter until april.
She looks to be gearing up for some flushes as soon as it rains I bet thee are buds. Silly rain lillys think it is raining because it gets cloudy and then I water. All the rain keeps going past and around us. *sigh*
new arbor on south east fence, since all the trees and 11 ft shrubs have been whacked out by the neighbors. It is very sunny ou there, but this area has shade by 1 pm
here is the other arch on the north east corner of the patio.. we moved it from the middle to the corner so we could walk out that way off the pario. I have built shade with living walls of sunflowers and morning glorys. the brugs on the pario are opposife this arch.
This used to be the bean patch. We got almost a bushel of beans this year . now it is full of tomatoes, peppers, moring glorys , maranthus, lilac de fleur moon flower, mariglds, zinnia, sunflowers, and a number of other things. including my banana tree.
I bulit this living wall of vines to shade the squash... it seems to work.. 4 o clocks are opposite this view.
I will show you the brugs outside next post. sorry to hog the thread.

Thank you for the nice comments, mostly I use Miracle Grow, I usually feed them once every 3 weeks, I also use 10 10 10 in the bottom of the hole when I put them in the ground
in April, my Best Friend, told me that's what works, it sure does, Thank you Karen
Before it gets cold,cold, I can help you out with the NBC, I started mine from 1 leaf, they are so easy to root, they're also easy to care for in the winter, just
don't over water them

all nice and green and very beautiful, Well Done! Son and hubby managed to get everything in to the basement and Garage today.

I set a bug fogger off in the garage, had already treated everything to go into the basement gardens... the huge banana now sits fuly inside the sunken sump pump well, since it doesn't ever get used. perfect fit, but a buggar to get out of garden, trollyed thru the house and down the 13 steps to the garden area.

Got this note From Dee's Daughter...
Beth McGinness Like

I am her middle daughter Beth and I'm sorry to have to say but we lost mom on August 30th to a massive heart attack. I don't know if you all knew she was fighting breast cancer and was on her 3rd round of chemo. I think the medicine was just to much for her heart. :0(
Mom was only 58 yrs old. I'm sorry I know she loved gardening and she love her garden sights I wish I had gotten a green thumb like my mom had. She could make anything grow. Flowers brought her so much joy. heart thank you for caring about her. Tell everyone to remember her fondly and think about her when the flowers bloom. She will be your angel now as well as ours
I am so sorry for the loss of a dear Plant friend.
We miss you and Love you Dee...♥♥♥

sister called me, the cancer tumors are again building fluid and she now has a quarter lung capacity and her heart is full of fluid so they are going to drain it next week, i am frustrated because I can't go there to be with her..her fighting spirit is amazing, she says she will do anything to stay alive a little longer, and she isn't feeling any pain, just the suffocating part, and she says as long as she doesn't feel like she is dying, she will keep on doing what ever she can.. silly girl is working out in her yard tommorrow in the rain with her oxygen tank LOL

LOL .
I have a new cross of four o clock, waited all summer to see if it took.. so proud of it..

Elizabeth you know passiflora incarnata will grow in OH. I have a HUGE vine in my back yard. It dies to the ground in winter and then takes over it's spot in the summer. I even get a few fruits to eat. I can send you some if you want, but it does take over, you have to be sure you have a place for it.

They do down here girl but I don't know about Kansas. You could experiment. Leave one out side and bring some inside. for Backup in case it doesn't...

very nice... my timers are all set as if the sun rises and sets across the yard east to west.. since all the plants in all the rooms are in the same direction, I thought it would make them happy. and, it does. a few off towards evening and then the last go off and they rest up. Pretty color on that brug there..

I went out and yesterday we got the potted brugs into little greenhouse. Brought some cuttings in and have them trimmed now. So no jungle look, too much but still have lots of plants inside.
Beautiful blooms.

Girl, you wouldn't like our weather at all, when it's 45 degrees, it feels warm if the sun is out, but windy & cloudy it's cold
it looks like we will have a warm up this weekend, it's a good thing, I still have some plants that need to go in the ground
some hens & chicks, I am doing a rock garden. I'll post Pic's as soon as I get it done, have a great Evening, stay warm

Everyone is correct about the Bulbs, as long as the ground isn't frozen, you can plant Bulbs
Debra, I know you're still Busy, as all of us are, I have a Love Hate relationship with this weather, I love the Color's of the Leaves
Turning, but the Cold, I sure don't like that.

I am now using a carpet knife, to take all the Leaves off my Brugs, after you cut your clippings, you can keep them in a 5 gal. Bucket
using an air stone, to keep the water from smelling bad, you'll be surprized how quickly they root, with oxygen in the water
also you want to change water at least once a week
