I will start the month with an unnamed cross from Olaf.Thanks!
October Photos and Chit Chat
Great pictures Olaf! One of the flowers on your seedling fell off when I was taking the picture.It's so cute.
Can't wait to see all your buds open.
Funny thing about Amizade.When I first started growing it the fuzz was so thick I thought I had mealies LOL.
Awesome pics Lynn and Olaf, great plants. But Amizade!!!!!!!! makes me scream, she's the cutest little thing I ever seen. Is she grown from seed? love love love it
I didn't grow mine from seed.It was a gift from a friend.It is lovely.
Trust me, if I could grow the two parent species of 'Amizade' and make the cross again, I would. However, both parents (S. kautskyi and S. hirsuta) are notoriously difficult to grow.
Fortunately for all Sinningia growers out there, 'Amizade' is easy to grow, bloom and propagate and is a beautiful, little plant!
Thanks, Lynn for sharing 'Amizade' with me. :)
Maria: I tend to propagate early and often and as soon as I have a cutting, your name will be on it! :)
Thanks Olaf, I'm inclined to think you're a gessie fairy in a man's disguise? hehe
LOL. What a nice thing to say!
I'm just trying to keep it in the spirit of 'Amizade' which is Portuguese for friendship. :)
It's a beautiful story:
And it's wonderful to have friends like you Olaf and Lynn and Bonnie and many others in this community
Lynn and Olaf, your plants are gorgeous. Olaf, I love that little 'Amazade'. Could you please put me on you list for a seedling or cutting? I love the meaning of it's name-friendship. I think it's the perfect plant to be shared among gessie friends. I am waiting for violet leaves to send up babies, and as soon as I have some I will send them off to you. I'm just starting again with gessies. Last winter I lost most of my collection of orchids, hoya and violets. I had an emergency trip to NY for a death in the family. Unfortunately the orchids and hoya reside outside on the patio. Violets are inside. Freezing temperatures froze the outside plants and lack of water did a number on the violets. So I'm starting over. Keep posting your pictures. I have a want list that is getting longer and longer each time I see beautiful plant pictures.
'Amizade' is still a baby but you sure are on the list for a cutting. :)
I'm not a Violet person but I'd be happy to share what I have. Other than that: There are always mini Sinningias, Kohlerias etc. that need a new home...
Thanks for the link and what a sweet thing to say.I have made some wonderful friends here too. ^_^
