Green BulbsFriday, July 29, 2011
I last updated about this plant, Silver Squill, some two years ago. The plant has since grown steadily and more foliages have sprouted after I have moved it to a shadier spot. The plant has however never sent out any flowers thus far :-(
At the begining of this year, one bulb (not these two in the pic below) sent out a flower stalk... but the buds just dried up before they get to open.
So I am crossing my fingers for these Hyacinth flowers to blossom well. They were re-chilled and re-rooted after they failed to grow anything the last time I took them out from the fridge.
I hope these Gladiolus 'White Prosperity' bulbs will forgive me for squeezing so many of them into one pot as I am really running short of space! Thanks HS for the bulbs :-D
I have been growing these Peruvian Lilies (Eucrosia bicolour) since February. The flowers just faded when I bought them. I wonder how long I need to wait for their next blooms. It's already July now...
Gloxinia is the easiest to re-flower. No need pre-chilling whatsoever... easy peasy ;-)
My Oxalis flowering and flourishing its beautiful purple leaves freely after a months of dormancy...
Bulbous plants are tough and often bring surprises. Don't you think so?
