Maybe these flowers are attracted to blonde's and they are color blind?

I've changed the temp and light out in my fla room and my Christmas cactus' are flowering again....I thought they only bloomed at Xmas but It's now an Easter Cactus. I'm confused! I think the cactus is more confused.

Sometimes when extreme changes happen it stresses out a plant and as a seld defence the will push out a flower spike.......

How are the orchids BTW ??????

My orchids are wonderful. I can't believe the shoots that are coming out of it.
How long does it take before it starts to develope into a flower? I've never seen the process of shoot to flower before. I've always bought them when they were flowering...

It can a liitle while.... even a a month or two.....
Does it have buds yet?

Also if you go to the local gardening shop and pick up some 'orchid food' that will help they strength of the plant, and it should make the color of the flower more vibrant....
And I would give it the 'food' maybe twice a month..... smile.gif

I am thinking about what to plant this year. Anyone have any ideas for a few outdoor containers?

(crossing fingers so I don't kill anything this year)

RavenWing..
Where are the containers going to be?
Full sun, partial, dappled shade??

Start with location.. colours you like, and if you would like..
I'd be happy to help you decide ...

I plan on suspending several of my orchids in a mostly shaded location on the patio. I will watch them closely to be sure they don't get too much light or get dry. The catlayas are supposed to like this location. The yard I intend to mow but otherwise ignore, except for an occasional insult ugly grass, ugly grass).

The garden will have many pole beans and several types of tomato. YUM!!!

I did an orchid rescue on Saturday. I had won a $25 gift certificate at one of the over priced nurseries. While shopping I found a big symbidium with really lovely flowers. I pointed out to the orchid lady that some of the blooms were beginning to drop. So, she knocked the price down from $90 to $30, leaving $5 to pick up. As she was preparing to wrap the plant for transport, I pointed out the 3 new flower stems that were developing. She hadn't noticed those, or the price wouldn't have gone down. Our rescue plant is now part of the home jungle. biggrin.gif

Maiskey! You should have just taken the plant and left the lady to her delusions. That way you might have gotten away with something similar again. tongue.gif
Well, it's becoming a habit! Every spring I find some bulbs that should have gone in the ground last fall.....This time it's a dozen daffies and some magic lillies. It's almost spring here, the daffies that actually made it into the ground are up and starting to bud. If I plant these now, will they make it? The bulbs look fine, not shriveled or moldy or anything.....

Jason ...........
Yikes that is a , well its a half ton of thatch !
I did'nt watch the guys do my yard,,
How does that machine work..??
It must be fairly labor intestive.. if your poor arms are that sore sad.gif..
Are you going to feed and seed now ??

I'm glad to hear your arms feel better...
My Hammered Dulcimer teacher gave me a work out today,,
we played Whiskey before breakfast, with a Fiddle player...
It goes fast ! I ened up laughing my head off a few times...
I went out and did some clean up today.....
things are starting to peek out !

Blubs and any sort of plant matter, can pretty much go in whenever the ground is not frozen..
Of course , your not going to put any "delecate" materials in , when frost or cold weather is still a threat..

It is sixty here today, sunny too,,
Its just fantastic !

Grats on your new orchard Maisky !
Zymbidium's are the only ones I have..
They seem to do well !

In Service to the Dream,
Paula
