October happenings

I have been really bad at keeping this up to date....

Last week, Tuesday after Columbus Day, I planted all new garlic as the bulbs I grew this year were really disappointing in size. I planted more Music, German Red and this unknown bulb I got from the farmer's market that I once knew the name of, but I have forgotten since! :\

Last night I discovered that my Phrag. albopurpureum 'Sir Arthur' was in spike! I am excited as I have never seen it bloom! It must be a nice one as it is awarded!

Then just a few minutes ago I discovered a little oncidium I have is also in spike!

My B. nodosa flowers are fading. It has bloomed for quite a long time! My first time flowering it since I got it as a seedling in flask!

I also have a Masdevallia Copper Angel x floribunda in bloom at the moment!

My double tuberose is in bloom at the moment, but the buds aren't opening up for some reason. It smells just as good all the same though!

Amorphophallus konjac

This is, I think, the third year this plant has grown for me...this year is the first time it has grown a pup!
