New thread on New babies for Newbie!

Beaumont, TX(Zone 8b)

Looks like you can get them in the UK.



I was going to post the 2 mile long link, but... well.... I didn't want to destroy the width of the thread.

Beaumont, TX(Zone 8b)

The link was for a "Tack shop". Imagine that? I did notice they also came in a lovely plaid fleece. Might be just the thing needed on those cold nights.

I love the dinosaur band-aids.

UK? Maybe Alice can run out and get you some.

Beaumont, TX(Zone 8b)

No need to worry. I overnighted them to you. Then I ordered plenty of them to replace those I just had Federal Express come get to bring to you. No expense is too much for our babies. :-)

You girls are crazy!!!! Here I was, proudly thinking I was one of the craziest around here .... but now I realize - I'm NOT!

Yeah, you take my breath away.... if I understood everything correctly this is what you're up to today:

....some sick and hospitalized coleus will be head supported with tons of colorful bandages and dinosaur & smiley-patterened band-aids ordered from Europe? And you want me to run to England and buy you more band aids? (of course I will, just send me an order...lol)

I'm really laughing my head off, you girls are funny to the extreme!!!!! I give up. More, please!

Uh Oh, If Alice is laughing here head off, this thing could be contagious. We many have to put Alice in Quarantine. Dr. Unique, could you ship her some of those bandages and I will go do further research.

As DR's who are suppose to share knowledge, I find it offensive you would not help a novice out. You have a duty to uphold!!

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

Best thread in the garden, DG's garden. Traci, pardon. Dr. Pupil, you're truely a riot. Having found your thread this AM, as a result most of my gardening chores were neglected, but have no fear. Most of those are on steroids, so they can do without my nuturing them this morning. lol,lol.
Alice; the "Blue Coleus" artwork is amazing. Well done.
Keep 'em going folks. I just love every minute of reading this thread.

Birmingham, AL(Zone 7b)

Glad you found us, Lily. We are in a minor crisis right now because the Secialists have neglected their Hippocratic oath and will not advise the Dr. on Red Bugs. However, if certain Specialist would think about the fact they are withholding information, they may realize many of their patients will be coming to visit soon and the red bugs will not be eradicated, thus spreading the RBD (Red Bug Disease).

Please continue to watch as I am expecting QUITE a few new patients and madness will ensue.

Update for everyone. Nurse DH helped the good Dr. take all children out of the community crib and now all are in their own beds. One truly disturbing disease was found, RRI (Root Rot Infection) which has taken the lives of several of the babies. All names of parents have been written down. We are working on plans for a wake at the end of the season. Tikes have been moved inside and feed a healthy diet of H2O2. Nurse DH is working on configurations for the Growth Room (#500, in case you want to visit once complete) where shelves will be insalled in front of all south windows, 4 in total - each 4x7) as advised by our Eastern Medicine specialist for lighting.

Respectful but sadden by neglectful Specialists,
Dr. Pupilcolii

Birmingham, AL(Zone 7b)

Just in case you were worried The Dr. wasn't really talking to concerned parents and friends, I had Nurse DH take a photo of me speaking with one of the relatives.

BABIES ARE HERE! BABIES ARE HERE! Must go take care of immediately. Stay tuned for updates!!!!

Oh, They are children of Cbrandenburg, aka Aunt Cathy!

Taylor Creek, FL(Zone 10a)

That's great!

Now before you do anything else.
You need to keep Cathy's babies away from the other, as the older one are in QUARANTEEN! http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/search.php?forum=&search_text=Red+spider+mites&limit=coleus&search_area=body&limit_poster=&Search=Search
After reading the first thread listed there you can proceed!

Great, let me know how they do. I've never seen little red bugs on my coleus, what are they? Red Mites or Aphids?

(Zone 1)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Pupilpropogtr!!!

Birmingham, AL(Zone 7b)

Thanks plantladyin. Love seeing you pop up and you are so good at ID'n.

Dr. Granny Sugar, I removed the ones in community bed and put in their own beds. A wonderful Specialist gave me Eastern Herbal medicine and chant advice. I put the babies in fresh soil and danced, jumped on one leg and waved my arms the air as the herbal were applied. I do believe it worked, as I did a thorough examination of each child. All were much better and Miracle medicine has already produced some heads. In fact, I will never feed the young uns with anything else again. They seem to glow in it. No little red, white, green, purple or any other bugs on them.

I was wondering if there is such thing as a coleus tree. Because, if not, I do believe Aunt Cathy has been hiding a secret from us. Her cuttings looked like some of them actually had bark on them. They were huge. Aunt Cathy, have you come up with a culiver and are keeping it to yourself. I even had to scarifice some of the babies, because two or three cutting off of one "branch" were enough. Naw, you know me, I have the left over cuttings in a glass. I waste nothing of these darlings.

So, I am at half time. Actually it is 2/3 time. I have one batch to go, yes I have been doing this since 3:14, and then I will primp them to get their pics made. But I thought I would let Dear Aunt Cathy see her children now who have been tucked in for the night.

The first pic looks like a beautiful bouquet. This is a photo of all the babies when they first got here.

The first set of patients waiting nevously to be put to bed at their new house. They look a little down trodden and limp with fear.

Excuse any feet that make it into pics. Since I am practicing new Eastern Medicine, I no longer need shoes. The just bind the energy in the feet, which is one of the most important aspects of our bodies. I am studying how to cure gorters through foot therapy.

Now they are in their new beds. If you are squimish, you may not want to look at these, as much "blood dirt" has collected on the floor during operation.

Prior photo and the next are of the first batch of patients. This in now way represents all of them.

Final shot of round two. Just one more to go. It is going to be a late night for the Dr. and both Nurse DH and LPN Teensy are not here to help with care. It is hard knowing that they are all depending on the Good Dr.

One of the babies who went crazy last night, but now has regained sanity.

This will be their home until Nurse DH can build shelves to put upstairs in the large south facing Growing Room. If you call the check on them later, they will be moved to room 500. Ask for that extension.

Finally, the other room in temporary growth room. I have 67 pots of babies, mind you some are twins, and I have not completed taking care of all of them yet. We may break 100 people. Especially when surprise Aunt sends her children. That's all for now. More updates in a few hours.

Wow! Someone is "Coleus Crazy"!! Look at all those Babies! A nursery? Wow, can't wait to see them grow up! Look forward to the kindergarden pictures!!

Birmingham, AL(Zone 7b)

Plant, I can't either. Of course through the winter, The Dr. will have to keep them small or the Pupilcoluii family would have no where to live. But come spring, I am hoping they will shoot up. I have decided not to have regular grass, but will have coleus grass instead. HAHAHA!!

(Zone 1)

OH my .... what a Beautiful lawn that would be!!! If you do plant a coleus lawn, please post a photo .... I know that would really be a Gorgeous sight! I can just imagine how pretty it would be .... you certainly would be the envy of your neighborhood!

Birmingham, AL(Zone 7b)

I am already the Crazy of our new neighborhood for talking to my plants, stealth watering at night, and dancing outside when it rains, I think I would like to be the envy for a little while. LOL.

Freedom, PA(Zone 6a)

You did good Traci, your cutting will take off in no time. Next year you will be the one shipping cuttings, LOL. My coleus are nice and thick stemmed. I put them in the greenhouse around March and that helps them mature. You must be exhausted from all that planting, but it's good for the Soul!

Beaumont, TX(Zone 8b)

Quoting:

Did I hear you say you have room for 500 more cuttings Dr.P?

You will have quite a collection of them in the Spring. Cathy is right. It'll be you shipping out all of the cuttings next year.

A yard of coleus, instead of grass would be just fine by me.... as long as there are pathways to walk along to pluck off those flower heads. :-) And don't worry about the neighbors thinking you are crazy. My neighbors must think I'm a lunatic because I am out there in my nightclothes, before the sun even comes up, plucking off those heads, admiring the leaves, trying to decide... do I need to water today.... or will God handle that for me.

I'm dreading the coming months, when I will have to pull them from the front yard, and it's bare out there. I'm leaving the hibiscus in the ground. I really hate the "covered with blankets" look though, so I'll have to find something to put in place of the coleus that can handle the couple of cold days we get without getting ugly. I'm not a "mum" kind of gal either. I'll figure something out. Maybe I should make a fur coat for my lady Hera and just leave things bare. HAHAHAHA

I have finally reached a Diagnostic evaluation.
You all are sure enough NUTS.

Yukon, OK(Zone 7b)

Oh Ted! I just about spit water all over my monitor!

I AM STILL LAUGHING!

Birmingham, AL(Zone 7b)

Well, Dr. TA, I believe I can safely say, on behalf of the other Specialists and myself, we would like a second opinion. I heard you weren't even a real DR.

No coleus for you and I got two new cuttings today. :^P

With Indignation,
Dr. Pupilcolii

Stockholm, Sweden

I'm not nuts, but all the others are.

yes, you should all be chatting in the Nut Tree Forum instead of the Coleus Forum.
LOL
Alice

.... coming to think, that would be a little sad if you did - I would be all alone and lonely in the coleus forum here then..... lol

No-nuts (and I hope I can prove it!)

Ted? Aren't you laughing out loud??? That is so funny to me! She doesn't think you're a DR!

Traci, you are so funny sometimes....no all the time!

Oh laughter makes the world go 'round...
Oh laughter makes the world go 'round...
Oh laughter makes the world go 'round...
Oh laughter makes the world go 'round...
Oh laughter makes the world go 'round...
DooDah....DooooDahhhh!

No way Alice....I don't think you can prove it! LOL

You know what? My DH really does think I'm nuts when I sit back here in my office and laugh so loud at some of the things that go on on this forum. I laughed so hard when I read what Ted wrote that I almost PMP! (figure that one out)

OK.....I'm going back outside to enjoy what God has given me today. Even though it's hot, hot, HOT....it's still beautiful!

Taylor Creek, FL(Zone 10a)

Well, now isn't this a fine mess.
Alice, dear sweet Alice you are just as nuts as all the rest of us. I mean you and I are so nuts we fly long distances Just for coleus and you don't think that makes us 'certifiable'!
And when ya'll don't keep me grinning from ear to ear I'm gonna find some other garden to steal cuttings from!
;)

Yukon, OK(Zone 7b)

Well, I'm not trying to pull the wool over anyone's eyes! LOL I know I'm 'certifiable' and I would never try to deny it. Even Dale told me that he wouldn't want to be my DH because I'm such a ding-bat!!! LOL I sure miss that man!

Sidney, you could never leave us....who would entertain you? LOL
