Beautiful colors on your blooms Debra. Mouthwatering pinks.!!!
Your epis are old enough to be blooming.. The large one I used to grow had to have
nite temps between 30 and 40 in winter to initiate buds. The ones I'm growing now don't need
the chilling. :-)

Debra, wouldn't hurt to try that since you're not getting blooms after 3 yrs. They prefer cool
night temps per Logees. Just don't
put them out when the temps will go below 45 or so. 45 should be cool enough to set buds.
You could try a little food but I never feed mine and I still get blooms.
Well Bat you would not have gotten blooms on the ones I grew in the 90's. Big flowers the size of a football but not until I chilled them per Logees instructions in their catalog.!!! I get tons of blooms on the epis I grow now. They stay in the g house all winter and brought out under the shade
trees in May. This is a much smaller bloom than on the huge night blooming Cereus.

Those are really special blooms. I am trying to be patient, but I think I am about to get rid of all these epis, as If they don't bloom for me, then they are just taking up space right now.
I need all the room I can get for my glorys. Anyway, Bat, yes there is a light fragrance, but not until night and not as heavy as the white moon flower.
i lindeheimer, wish ZI had more seeds of that one ( 1st pic) , Jaimie Lynn, Shibouri, and alba carnea

I would love to find more of the Lindeheimer and I am still waiting for the Obscura to do something .. *sigh* or.. maybe the orachea? I have both so it is confusing as heck.

I feel the same way, love the species best, and always looking for a new one. MGs are a new obsession for me, but its that way with all the plants I collect. I just got ochracea, they sprouted a few days ago. The leaves are such a neat color, almost blue. (it is just the first leaves, but I've never seen any that color before) Also my first yellow MG. Can't wait until it gets big

My favorite hige from 2 or 3 yrs ago. A shame I couldn't get a bloom like this from my sds since 2011. I planted what I thought was this special hige but the sds did
not produce this lovely bloom. :-)

Debra the dahlias are so pretty, I really like the dark leaved ones. I had to stop digging mine up in the fall with my back. It was either the dahlias or cannas and I like the cannas a bit better. Will buy a few new ones this year.

I took pictures of my hummer yesterday but when I tried to post here on the forum it ends up sideways so I didn't post. This morning took 2 pics with camera horizontally so the picture posts right. The hummer doesn't stay long enough on the feeder for me to get a better pic from inside the house.

Debra, I always hold back some of my sds so I can grow it again another day. Now I have 2 different patterns going on from out of Becky's original sds.
I need to grow one or two of each this summer to see what I get.

Pretty blooms Debra, Jackie, and Shauna!

I can't wait till mine bloom. Some of my seedlings are taking off but I lost quite a few when we had one of those real cold nights in the gh and I hadn't turned on the heat lamps.

Thanks Debra, Linda and Helena.
Deb, I think the last one is my mg that opens gray, coming up in the floor of the green house.
Pretty sure it turns pink the 2nd day. I can't remember the name right now.

Nice blooms.

Kind of cool here but Spring is on the way. I love when my roses start blooming and I was tempted with tropical plants. But first my mg vines are giving me a work out, in and out of gh each day after the sun warms up (about mid morning)! Had to delete other pictures, ridiculous that they come out upside down on this site, I had them right on my files.

A lot of people have them come out upside down or sideways! wish DG would quilt messing around with the upgrades, or test them first.

Helena, wish you had not deleted any of your pics since they were right side up in your files.
Your MG"s look great!!!

Ronnie I saw the weather channel talking about snow
all up and down the East coast. Hope you don't get hit hard.

I second that.. I am tired of covering up the giant oleanader with an ugly old brown sheet just cuz it is in the 20's. I think it will be a long rest of the month at this point.. Maybe, if we are all lucky, this March will go out like a lamb.

well, it got so cold so fast, the brown sheet is now covered with my wonder woman snuggly on top of it. Sheese! Poor oleander, I bet it thinks it is being punished or something.

I love Oleanders Debra. I hope yours makes it thru the rest of the winter.
Its somewhat hardy. Maybe it would come back from the roots if it freezes back??

It is in a huge tub, Jackie, and we are headed for the 70's by this weekend, so I am sure it will be okay, I just keep in on the front porch in a sheltered corner for now, but cover it up so it doesn't get frost bit.. havn't seen any frost yet, and I have bulbs about to bloom, so we will see. Mean while, down in the basement, I keep missing shots of the crazy stictocardia blooming, and had a keiru blooming, and the PPV, and a jaimie lynn, and some of Ronnies Purps.. so grateful to see the spent blooms, and the seed pods forming. How does that happen? Do you think the gnats pollinate them? Last saturday I had to completely move all the plants in that room ( charlies room) and my son moved everything from that room to the other end, and all the storage in his old rom now. makes sense, it was pretty cold in there, but I had to undo the clematis, the moonflowers, and the climbing clerodendrums in order to make that happen. hoping they all get going now, there is natural light in that south end, and so we will see.

Deb, I think any insect could be the pollinator so likely was the gnats.
Your plants will love the natural light on the South end.
Wonder what this little orange blooming succulent is, anyone recognize it?
My pink blooming Oxalis.

potting mix at the roots. Don't give up on yours. :-)
