RE: January blooms

More wax Begonias that live with a Philodendron. I wouldn't think this pot is in enough light for them, but here are some blooms.


 o
RE: January blooms

Some kind of Rhipsalis, I think.


 o
RE: January blooms

Purple,
Your last picture is Rhipsalis salicornioides, AKA 'Drunkard's Dream." I think it's one of a few (or the only one) Rhipsalis I've seen that have yellow flowers.

RE: January blooms

Those are impressive blooms on the Chamaedora elegans ,mines used to flower before my little sisters literally destroyed it leaf by leaf


 o
RE: January blooms

My bloomers are all repeats, as well, Tiffany.
Two of my Euphorbias are blooming, but their cyathia are of little consequence. My Meyer Lemon is on the verge of opening its blooms. And my Christmas Cactus is opening new blooms daily, even as the spent blooms fall away.

Happy New Year!!!

All of the beautiful blooming plants looks wonderful!

I have a few to share later on.. Sitting with Grandson, I'll post when I get home and take some pics!

Love them all! Tiffany and Josh, just gorgeous !

Thank you for sharing...

Hey, Laura, happy New Year to thee, as well!

RE: January blooms

TY, Planto! Apparently it should be called Hatiora now?

TG, TY & sorry to hear!

Josh & Flora - awesome!!

Laura, that sounds great!

- Tiffany


 o
RE: January blooms

Tiffany,
I've seen them called both Rhipsalis and Hatiora... not sure which one is the "correct" Genus name though. I know EA labels theirs as Rhipsalis, but we know how funky EA can be with their nomenclature haha.

Happy New Year to you Mike!!! ;-)

Here are a few of my Plumeria blooming right now under lights ( T-5)

Hope you all are staying warm with this massive snow storm in the North East. Brrrrr...

The name of this Plumeria is called " Sparky".

Take care,

Laura

RE: January blooms

Hey, Mike, good to see ya! And great blooms, too! Look at all those Orchids.

Here's a shot of my Euphorbia millii that was a stow-away in one of the Jades you sent me, Mike. This one blooms most of the year.

RE: January blooms

Green man or Josh what do you mean the E. Millie was a stowaway? Would you mind telling the story?
Grantgarden


 o
RE: January blooms

Thanks, Grant, I'd love to tell the story! :-)

Mike sent me several Jades that he rescued from a nursery that was going out of business. In the root-ball of one of those Jades, right at the edge of the container, there was this tiny stem that had obviously grown from a seed (judging by the small size and the single, undamaged central root). It was leafless and wrinkled from dehydration, and I had no idea what it was. Truth be told, I nearly tossed it. But then I thought, Heck, why not pot it and grow it? So I did.

A week or two after potting it in lava rock, perlite, and a fraction of bark, the stem plumped back up and began to grow leaves at the top. This is what it looked like a month after potting. 2-inch container for reference.

Josh

RE: January blooms

These are awesome! For those who remember me putting Sans in the ground for summer, here's what I kept after sending most of the extras to new homes. Just dug them up and sat them in this pot. Had to bring the pot inside last night, too cold even in the shed. This morning, I noticed this!


 o
RE: January blooms

Pretty, Prettty, Pretty :>) mine decided to wait to open on the coldest day of my New Year. Its nice to sit inside watch the snow fly and enjoy seeing all these beautiful flowers we have.

Happy Gardening in 2014, may the winter be short & the spring come early.....

They said it was fine so I went straight to the E. Millii. Man was that plant ugly it only had one stem and it was about 5 feet tall! But it had some small branches on it and took a cutting off of it! Not as interesting as Josh's story!

Man, i need to go find myself a euphorbie milii, they are so pretty, the only problem is i get severe dermatitis from euphorbia sap, yet i still grow several euphorbias

This is my Lavender Star Flower Bonsai. Just bloomed this morning!!!

 o
RE: January blooms

Grant, that's a cool story and a cool rescue! Meyer Mike also sent me one of the large-leafed varieties, but it isn't blooming right now. I'm no fan of pokey plants, but I'll take an Euphorb over a glochid-bearing Cacti any day of the week.

Here's a shot of the small-leafed E. milii, as it is now. Still in the same small container. I plan to prune it down low so that it stays compact and bushy. This one re-grows leaves/branches from pretty much anywhere along the trunk.

RE: January blooms

Juju...Lol...That's right..It was very warm that day and I decided to snap a shot like that..I know you are kidding..

Hey Josh....Love love love the flowers on yours!I love how far along that Milli has come along..It grew bigger and faster than mine.

Chris..Not bad..I love the tallness of it..Sorry Ihave not been around since my car accident..We will catch up.
Many of my succulents are flowering in the basement, which reminds me.

Tom, where in the world did you get that Orchid!? The Phal? I never saw one that color or that pretty..I would grow one too if they had them here. Never desired to grow one until I saw yours.

Pumpkin..Beautiful!

Laura...I can't believe you still have flowering Plumeria..What the heck? They are beautiful!!!!!!
Good job.
Congrats on the Star Flower..Pretty

Grant, where did you get that top flower? String of Pearls? It is strange looking..Love it

Purple and everyone else, AMAZING!.
Made my day with all this dreaded unforgiving Artic Air

RE: January blooms

Hi Mike,
Believe it or not I got that Phal at Home depot. I classify myself as a Phal killer actually but couldn't pass up this one and another attempt at not killing one. So far, so good!


 o
RE: January blooms

Hey Mike,
Yep the bloom is from the string of pearls. I love the stigmas on them it's so curly!


 o
RE: January blooms

These are ALL inspiring--so great to see what's blooming for everyone.

I love these little 'twinkle' Oncidiums. They're easy to grow, and fragrant.

Unbelievably awesome, the selection of plants! I've looked at all of these pics a few times. Grant, you have a better camera than I do, and the skill to use it!

Callisia fragrans is preparing a stalk of its' strange blooms. Probably won't be a Jan bloomer though.

RE: January blooms

The beauty of all these blooms is incredible and a perfect lift to the winter blahs. My shamrock is still putting out blooms, this has got to be the longest blooming that I think this plant has ever had.
Christine


 o
RE: January blooms

This is sort of a pre-bloom, just so excited been waiting for almost 2 years to see what color this kalanchoe is. :-)

I think it should make it before Jan 31. I will have to be careful though, its been fussy in its current state. Poor draining soil, north window. I let it get too dry a week or so ago and lost some buds. This spring i will do a much needed repot, just gotta pickup some perlite. I don't want to put it in "normal" gritty mix, its container is so large it would be too heavy. Substitute perlite for granite aught to do the trick.

Smishgibson, perlite is more water-retentive than granite grit, especially smaller-particle perlite. Screen it, like the rest of the ingredients. You should probably be ok, but watch for overwatering just in case.

RE: January blooms

Do wish it wasn't so difficult to capture many of the reds and purples accurately with digital cameras. Never had that problem with film. Color should be much darker and richer -- none of the magenta garbage. (The font color I'm using is actually a bit closer.) If only you could see the actual color. *sigh*

Jan 2014 photo IMG_9968_zps3cad8240.jpg

This one starts off green then 'ripens' to yellow.

Jan 2014 photo IMG_9974sm_zpsd77f2185.jpg

Lightly fragrant

Jan 2014 photo IMG_9972_zpsaec1efce.jpg

I must admit I often forget about this mini. It's literally always in bloom (or darn close to it) so really have reached the point of rarely noticing. It has about filled up the 3inch pot its in -- and it has only taken around 5yrs or so to do it from the 0.5 inch plug I started with. heh (For those of you who have yet to venture into the world of micro minis, this is why they cost at least as much if not more than that blooming sized catt or cym. ;) )

The flower is roughly 5-6mm long from front to back. Entire plant stands about 1.5 - 2 inches (4-5cm) high.

RE: January blooms

Easter cactus cutting is going to finish its' bloom afterall. The whole plant consists of 2 'leaves' and this flower.

Amazing pics all!! January is certainly not dull when it comes to captive blooms.

Paul, I have the same color trying to take pics of the subtle shades of succulents, the purple/red/pink area. Your pics are awesome in any case!


 o
RE: January blooms

Oh you post so beautiful pictures!! I have just very few flowering plants - but they warm my heart on cold and snowy days!


 o
RE: January blooms

This bloom opened finally today on my Oncidium NOID orchid, so I guess it counts as a January bloom, but only one has opened so far (well almost completely open). I bought it for only a couple of dollars on clearance last winter cause it was completely out of bloom, so I had no idea what it would look like or even what color it would be, so it was VERY exciting to finally find out. Its a beautiful burnt orange color, I just love it!! I cant wait for the rest of them to open!!


 o
RE: January blooms

I have a Chlorophytum laxum 'Bichetii' that has bloomed a couple times already and has a handful of buds forming right now. It took me several pictures before I could get one that wasn't blurry:
Chlorophytum laxum 'Bichetii' photo 100_4279_zps23f7936a.jpg

Gasteraloe 'Green Ice' Now this one is sort of a cheat, it was blooming when I purchased it: Gasteraloe 'Green Ice' photo 100_4289_zps322a5395.jpg

Another cheat, this AV was blooming when I purchased it. It has a few more buds forming on it, so hopefully I'll have another set of blooms to look at. The one bloom is a bit odd looking to say the least:
Saintpaulia ionantha photo 100_4285_zpsfc81d3ed.jpg

RE: January blooms

What beautiful blooms to end January, I'm looking forward to seeing what you all will show in February, we're one step closer to spring, yeah!!!!!


 o
RE: January blooms

Planto, that's my kind of cheating!

These new pics are awesome! I've never seen a Gasteraloe bloom before. Last call for anymore today?

Oops, in my last post above I said, "Paul, I have the same color trying to take pics" (What color? Do I get red with irritation? LOL!)

Should be: Paul, I have the same problem with color trying to take pics...
