Hi friends here are the pics of the beautiful plant I am growing in container.

That flowers pic is about 2 weeks back, now what's happening is that there are no more flowering buds on the spike (stem).

What shall I do now?, shall I cut the stem by half or else wait for flowering buds to appear?.

Burraganesh, once all the buds have opened on a flower spike, that spike is complete. It will not produce additional buds. Unless you want the spent flowers to set seeds, you can cut it back.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
