My gentian


By Kasy

My gentian (Gentiana sino-ornata (Gentian))

I lost hope it would flower for me this year - didn't put a lot of new growth, it was just sitting there. But hey - one day it decided to flower - as if to say - 'never loose a faith', lol
Gentiana sino-ornata (Showy Chinese Gentian)
It's growing in a pot, but I think it was still too wet for it this year.

do you think it grows worse if there is rainy weather? Mine bloom just when it was rainy for some days...

Katarina - don't forget you got very hot spring and summer this year:)

That was question, Kasia :)
The problem is, that they didnĀ“t grow very well in hot days. They accelerated in September.

too hot for too long for them? the same with plants here Katarina - suddenly they started to grow instead of getting ready for winter;-)
