I like the fuschias most.

What fascinating orchids! They look so healthy. I've thought about growing one, but haven't yet tried. I'm great at growing plants outdoors, but not in. I'm afraid I'll kill its beauty. Happy bloom day to ya!

The orchids are always my favorite. I've actually had one blooming since April - amazing I know but I'm not exaggerating. It actually just dropped it's last bloom today and I was quite sad.

Hi, Jackie, Spathoglottis is on my list to plant this winter. I think I have the iguana population under control so maybe this one will have a chance. They devoured the last one. Great images, thanks.

Jackie said...

Thanks, ya'll!

EMC, you must be giving your orchid a very nice home!

Scott, good luck with your Spathoglottis outside. I'm contemplating transplanting mine into the garden...

Those ground orchid & fushia very much my fav. plants. Those orchid still haven't bloomed after few years and I dare not try fushias - still summoning my courage & confidence to have that leap of faith.
Any tips on those?

Jackie said...

Hi James, fuchsias need cool weather...like less than 80F to be their best. Other than that, just grow them like an ordinary perennial.
