oh, thanks meanie!! thats fabulous! so tall!!! and you said it grew really quickly??

the plant hanging above is also really fascinating

Simbad - how large were the bulbs? 70/80mm is about flowering size. They will bloom from smaller bulbs, but not reliably.

Sticki - it was about seven weeks from setting the bulb to bloom.
The hanging plant is Aeschynanthus marmoratus..............

That's a bit like the paper whites, incredible!

I like the other one too, very interesting, is that a sunny window?

SSW facing - seems to suit it!

28 May, 2012


I have no windows facing that way!

28 May, 2012


East or south facing would be more than good enough Sticki.

28 May, 2012


i can do east but the trees still block the sun!!!

Do you live in a cave!!!!!

If it's lack of windowsill, stand the pot on a table when young.............

well you might well think so and i have considered becoming a hermit but they arent allowed the internet!!!

thats why i have a shady garden!!!!!

no i have windowsills but the house faces the wrong way ~ i need a turntable!!! [mega sized]

Oh the little mouse plant! I love it, I got one! Are you getting one too?

29 May, 2012


Now I'm jealous!

Next year maybe...........

got mine at the rare plants, surreylad has one and says they spread ~ so im hoping!!! hard to know where to put them, at the moment i have mine in a container by the door, it would get lost in the flower bed.

Anywhere shady I reckon would be good...........

29 May, 2012
