Fuschia Lambada

Fuschia Lambada

Nicely formed full size, but alas, they fell when I watered it. It has tiny buds all over, but seems to have come to a stand still in growth. One month to wait.

LOLOL! THey sure like it a lot cooler than I expected. And they are happy as can be with 12 hours of indirect artificial light as well. I didn't expect this at all. Last year I had a swingtime, that just couldn't take it, warmer and with more light. I've found a rival love to my african violet addiction. :-)

I'd suggest cutting it back and keeping the soil moist. They seem to sprout back from the woody stems. Cool indirect light position as well. They seem to like the air moving and looked better in spring and fall than summer here. I hope it comes back for you. :)

I'm amazed you're growing this at all given your conditions. I love fuchsias and am envious of Hywel's beauties.

Fingers crossed for you Aleyna! :-)

MT, I've been so surprized that these are so happy this winter. I had one in more light and warmth last year and it did not appreciate it. I'm expecting a good new flush of flower on these in february or march.
