i got these seed from my friend and she wasn't sure on the name she just liked the vine so i started some to see. they sprouted in 3 days. those are the seed included in the picture. any ideas or do i need to wait till it gets bigger?
Looks like a bean ~ maybe pink-flowered Hyacinth Bean Vine? Did the seeds look like beans? Can you ask your friend if the flowers were in clusters and formed bean-looking seed pods? If so, I'll bet that's it.
the seed is on the rim of the tray. she said that it was a pink flower cluster. edible would be nice lol. it seems to be a fast grower there is a size difference since yesterday when i took the picture. she also gave me a dark pink flowering vine that hasn't sprouted yet and a few shrubs that i'm waiting on, also pink. i will post when they come up.
is it girl scout cookie time again? oh boy i love those coconut cookies.
sugar_fl i can't open that hyperlink it says i'm not authorized.
just looked it up in the database yes that is what the seed look like. it is a real pretty vine. thank you so much for identifying it so quickly. i am a happy girl. will be happier when i find that girlscout with my cookies lol.
I think it is a hyacinth bean vine too. I just planted some seed 2 days ago, but mine are purple. Now I'm gonna be watching them like a hawk, hoping mine will come up that quick. I have no patience and those will be great for me, and I might plant more just for their energy and swiftness!!!
Here is a link I think will work. I don't know why the other didn't but it is in Webshots so maybe they stopped letting us use them outside.. It did work on mine. Opps My DH just tried on his puter & he got the same message :( Guess I need a new place to store pix.. any ideas?
Oh, DUH! I missed the seed on the tray edge, Farmgirl! That is DEFINITELY and WITHOUT a doubt Hyacinth Bean Vine, Dolichos lablab. DH and I are gonna' do some planting in the garden today ~ English peas, snow peas, sugar cane, glads, maybe transplant the comfrey. Might plant some purple HBV's I have, but I don't have many seeds and they grow so fast ~ they might be too big to cover come end of March and if we have a late freeze...
Sugar, does your ISP offer free webspace with your connection? A lot of them do ~ mine does. Ask and let me know. I'll give you some urls for free FTP (uploading) programs and tips.
Yes I have some web space with my server.. it isn't a lot & with a digital camera U can sure use a lot..My server changes quite a bit for more space..I tried to get in with Fortune City but Hot Mail messed me up..I have a FTP & know how to use it most places..
If U want to send me your address I'll be glad to send U more seeds.. I don't have many but can spare 1 or 2 offers.
Thanks for the kind offer of help.
