Nice flowers

I just planted two Ylang Ylang trees upwind of my house a month ago. They are already starting to grow. Hopefully it won't be long before they start blooming.

I agree with you that it would be great. But it's not practically feasible when sowing your seeds outdoors. At least not how I do it. I spread the seed all over my property in hopes that some will...

OK, here's everything going on with Cynoches in my garden.

Almost looks like P. baculus because of the large petals in relation to the lip, though the lip seems kind of narrow. Another identifying feature on these white flowered Prosthechea is how many...

Well, my curiosity got the better of me and I picked one up that he gave me a lower price on because it has already bloomed twice and is developing a 3rd spike. Looking forward to seeing if it's...

Can Cynoches warszewiczii get really big?

I found a person selling Cynoches near me an went yesterday to see what they had. He had a row of huge plants that he claimed were C. warszewiczii. The p-bulbs were all 12" to 18" long and up to...

I'll use them whole when using them to fill large pots/baskets. If I'm potting in small containers I'll chop them up. They seem to be pretty hydrophobic at first but get wet just fine once they have...
