Pictures (as promised)

Is this bloom supposed to look "faded" like it does? Or am I missing some nutrients/minerals? It was just repotted less than 5 weeks ago.

And what is up with this leaf? (the one with the line I drew coming out of it)

Enjoy them; I know I will. I found a thrips on this one, so I'm spending the morning disbudding AGAIN!

Make it a great day everyone,

Dora

HI Dora,
The pics look great. Sorry to hear that the thrips are back. What's the name of the first one? I love the bloom and the foliage.

Thank you, Dora. :) Persian Prince's light green scalloped foliage is really nice and sets off those indigo blooms beautifully.

Dora,

You asked about the red flower fading. What is the name of the plant. Fall Colors looks something like that and has that color.

Wow. Great looking plants. I can't decide which one I like the best.
That is too bad about the thrips on the last one. Those flowers are pretty.
What is the 2nd one called?

Molly,
I will have leaves next week of both of those plants.
Here's the way that I work it:
You contact me through private email (my screen name at comcast period net)
-Give me your mailing address and what you want
- I'll send it out to you
- You reimburse me for the postage and include whatever donation you want to offer for the plant content and agree to send that to me within 1 week.
