Professional staking of spike

Or the complete opposite more likely. :rofl:

Despite blasting five of its buds after I used to strong of a home remedy, my little Liu's Berry 'ES' quickly starting making more buds. It opened its first flower yesterday and it looks like it'll...

Hmm... To my untrained eye, it doesn't look like pests. I've battled mealybugs quite extensively this summer and also stared at similar spots like in the second picture. I used rubbing alcohol on a...

It's mostly the bump it has on one petal that bugs me. It's not as visible in the pictures, but very noticeable IRL. That's why I think it has a failed peloric mutation because it looks like an...

The wonky aspect is that it looks like it almost went peloric and then decided not to. It has a yellow-ish bump on one of its petals. It's more visible to the naked eye that in the picture.

Still trucking along

So, after some serious mistreatment where I messed up the strength of a recommended home remedy for mealybugs, which caused damage to some leaves, mold in the medium of some phals, blasted pretty...

Spike progressions and more mealybugs

Good updates first! All Phals seem to respond well to the neem oil treatment (and the mealybugs less so), as they are continuing to grow; leaves, roots and spikes.

Here are some pics of how the...

Smile A couple of more spikes

I can't take credit for these spikes (probably not for any of the other spikes either, aside from the Magic Art's one), but I just wanted to show them regardless.

My Phal Yaphon Green Batman came...

It's been almost a month since I wrote here last and I made one significant change that has affected my Phals quite a bit.

With the risk of getting banned from the forum... I don't drink beer. :sorry:

Definitely not buying beer just to give the snails. I can at least eat the lettuce myself if no snails show up.

Bud blasts and snail food

Aww, the big bud on the Phal. LD's Bear King x George Vasquez didn't make it. :( I think the Phal. Mini Mark will abort one of the spikes and at least two buds will blast on the other one. I hope the...

I mean, my neighbors already knows I'm weird so that would just confirm that. Sounds like I'll have to get some coffee then and invite the snails for a cup o' joe.

One of them seems weaker so I didn't want it to have to compete with the other one anymore. They're both repotted so all that's left to do is to wait and see what happens.
