Streptocarpella? so same family as streptocarpus?? is this outdoors or indoors?

12 Sep, 2012

 

Same family.

This is indoors. The cutting that I took did very poorly outdoors!

12 Sep, 2012

 

i tried doing cuttings of streptocarpus katie ~ not good :-(

12 Sep, 2012

 

The cutting WAS good until I put it outdoors!

12 Sep, 2012

 

oh, you didnt lose it? :-(

12 Sep, 2012

 

No, but it seriously sulked a while!

12 Sep, 2012

 

did you take the cutting from the leaf edge? ie a piece of leaf?

12 Sep, 2012

 

I took a section of stem and it rooted quickly............

12 Sep, 2012

 

maybe i should have tried that way ~ into compost for seedlings?

12 Sep, 2012

 

Just like that!

12 Sep, 2012

 

ok, i will try again ~ but i will keep it indoors!!

12 Sep, 2012

 

So will I next time!

12 Sep, 2012

 

best left till next year now or would it work still this year?

12 Sep, 2012

 

Probably wait now till the spring................

Just been tipped off about this site - they have a great range of Fuchsia!

oh, ok, thank you

i rather like the Encliandra type ~ think they are the very tiny ones.

12 Sep, 2012

 

They have a few - Laura Cross and F.obconica look interesting...............

12 Sep, 2012

 

i rather like petit four

12 Sep, 2012

Oh! Where did you find that one? Very nice.

And I love the one you are growing, really lovely.

12 Sep, 2012

 

The flowers on the one that I'm growing are about 10cm long!
I've just ordered seeds for the pure red form of F.boliviana.

That site has some rather choice Salvia too..............

lol..you two trading links...excellent! Forgot what I was going to say now....oh yes, it was just to say that Streps of all kinds seem to repay care and attention very generously. However, as I am not very caring or attentive, I resist buying them!

13 Sep, 2012

 

very nice but no salvias for me ~ they need sun!! think i had better find a site for ferns!!

flowers 10cm? thats amazing!!

13 Sep, 2012

 

Oh, Meanie...I've just come back and I was thinking that you were going to post a photo of your big black spider flower thing! Can't remember what it's called...do you know what I mean? And do you still have it?

13 Sep, 2012

 

The bat flower Karen?

13 Sep, 2012

 

Yup! That's the one, Sticki! I seem to remember that it was about this time last year that I saw one in the market and then Meanie posted his.

I though this plant liked cooler weather? I know they do best outdoors here in winter. This plant has way too many bug issues indoors (here in San Diego).

14 Sep, 2012

 

Sticki - I have some seed for a shade tolerant Salvia. I could send you some.

Karen - I gave it away when I moved as it was far too large for the growing space here!

Delonix - it didn't like it as cool (and wet) as it was here!

14 Sep, 2012

 

Yes, maybe it's too wet.

14 Sep, 2012

 

thats really kind meanie, i didnt realise some were ok in the shade? nice flowers, i like them!
