So, what's blooming over there? (A picture thread)

nmushka(6)April 5, 2011

On this end, a Morning Thunder, received as a leaf last fall, had finally decided to grace the household with a flower!

The birth-marked NOID chimera is still going strong.

This guy looked white when I originally got him. Not only had he turned pink-edged and blue-splotched, but the variegation on the leaves came and went with the seasons.

So, what's blooming over there? ;)

I LOVE looking at everyone's pictures (Must resist the urge to buy more!) Thought I would share my flowers that are blooming right now. My violets are all in need of repotting, and I plan to do so as soon as I'm able to walk again. (Ankle surgery 3 weeks ago) I have a ton of babies that need to be moved in to bigger pots. Can't wait to start on that project.

This is a violet I bought last June and in the entire time I've had it, it's only stopped blooming once, and only for a few weeks. The blooms last forever! I actually bought it at Lowes. I didn't know much about African Violets then, and nothing about all the colors and varieties. This one caught my eye because it was almost white and had some cool looking flowers.

Close up of the flowers:

This is my Buckeye Colossal. I bought it at a greenhouse last summer, and it took a while for it to bloom, but it was well worth the wait.

My Allegro Appalachian Trail. Grew this one from a leaf last year, and it finally decided to bloom this morning.

This NOID was given to my wife a several years ago. I repotted and began fertilizing it a couple of months ago and it has rewarded me with blooms.

All of your flowers are so very beautiful. Great job!

The you have labeled at "Everfloris Evergrace" is actually "Optimara Evergrace".

I hope you don't mind my jumping in here....

I love the birth-marked chimera, what a lovely bloom! And Optimara Evergrace is just lovely. And Buckeye Colossal... WOW WOW WOW what a beauty that is!

Here are my first couple of AV's.. they are humble beginnings all, either from the grocery store or Lowe's and one was a gift, but they are what got me hooked.

Optimara Romance

NOID from Lowe's

NOID sport from my neighbors NOID

NOID form grocery store - probably an Optimara


NOID from Lowe's will probably open tomorrow

Thanks for looking and if anyone has a guess as to what the NOIDS are I would appreciate it!
