June pictures and chit chat
So beautiful as always. S. araneosa looks so soft and adorable, just like a teddy-bear. How fragrant is your Scentimental Journey? I just bought a young plant and can't wait to see the first blooms. The flower color and shape is very nice, I'm so exited about my new treasure!
Nice pics to come back from a trip and see :) I got an Alsobia from someone but don't know which one I got. Mine has small leaves. Will have to wait for it to bloom and see :) Anticipation....lol!!
If it is a small leaved (about 1/4 to 1/3" normally) Alsobia, it should be A. dianthiflora. In good light, the leaves have darker veins.
A. 'Cygnet' is overall much, much larger than A. dianthiflora. Both grow lots of stolons like Episcias and both make great plants for hanging baskets.
Nice!! Anxious to see what Donna looks like when she opens. Can't comprehend you having problems with the 3 in the last post as well as you grow plants:)
Well, that's been a combination of neglect and bad placement... The Primulina suffered a lot this year and lost a few leaves but is now alive and kicking and is actually growing relatively fast. :)
Ah, that first sentence said it all lol!! I know you had been pretty busy and that will go right along with it:)))
Great pictures,as always Olaf!
Karen,your Strep. shelf is a knockout!
There she is showing her blooms :) Now I remember that one. Isn't it D. Thompson's? Pretty :)
Nice pics everyone!!
Thanks, Connie! 'Donna' sure is one of Dave's speciosas.
Beautiful Olaf... And thanks for the compliment! I am enjoying them!
They sure are happy in that apt. window!!! They have really grown.
I have gotten some seeds from the Cross words fund...I am hoping they are viable and will come up :)
Great photos Olaf!
Good luck with the seeds Sis!
Happy Father's Day to all of you dads!
They are all so beautiful and filled with blooms!
They are beautiful, Karen! Wow! Well grown and groomed plants. Something that I can't necessarily say about my plants... ;)
1: This is what happens when Pearcea hypocyrtiflora takes over... LOL There are some other plants in there as well but the Pearcea clearly is the winner...
2: Achimenes erecta 'Tiny Red'. I love these little guys. This is an Achimenes that does very well under lights, stays small and makes tons and tons of itty bitty rhizomes.
3: Niphaea oblonga. Nice foliage and easy to grow from rhizomes.
4: Streptocarpus subg. Streptocarpella 'Boysenberry Delight'. The only kind of Streptocarpus that I'm capable of keeping alive in the long run... LOL
