Blooming in June!

ordphien(9)June 1, 2014

I started one!
Some of you may remember a zygopetalum orchid I posted a while back when I bought it.
Well I managed to rebloom it!
Great fragrance. Very strong sweet hyacinth type smell. Crisp and clean though. No musk.
I can smell it from the bottom of my stairs and even my backyard!

Good for you Ordphien. Lovely Orchid.

I can't presume my Siberian Wallflower, has such potent scent as your orchid, but it has delightfully taken me unawares several times today.

I grew these last year. Funny story was that I sowed some seeds in flats and threw some in the garden. These are the latter ones, which decided to grow in the middle of the pathway. Lovely orange flower, nice scent like narcissus, but with more body, yet not as heady, somewhat fruity.

I've never actually seen a wallflower in person. How I wish I could smell it.

My mini gardenia, radicans, is starting to enter full bloom. Let's hope I don't kill this one lol

Me neither Ordphien, This was my first encounter!

I'm generally not a big fan of gardenias but I'm learning to appreciate them. Yours has a lovely form, healthy leaves and lovely flowers.

Small, but great as cut flower when one can appreciate the wafting fragrance....

Ordphien,

What do you have the Zyo potted in? Moss, bark, rock, ect. Seems very challenging to grow these in the Tampa area as the dead of summer proves too hot and wet. I am trying to adjust it as an indoor orchid. It does have one of my favorite scents. How do you grow yours with light, water, ect.? Great growing!!!

Ordphien,
Beautiful orchard! I've never smelled a fragrant one. Thanks foir posting that pic!

Phlox in a pot, smells wonderful.

Sweetbay magnolia, I just planted it a couple weeks ago, it's first bloom.

Chaste Tree time! Talk about fragrant, it must be 18 feet tall.

Nice photos Butterfly.

Both our neighbours have planted dwarf lilacs as a hedge. They grow in full shade.

I'm normally not fond of lilacs, but these dwarf ones engulf our pathway with their sweet smell, it's so intoxicating. I look forward each spring to their blooms.

Lily of the valley. Another flower I've never seen in person.
They won't grow here.

I grow my zygo in promix. Water daily in summer, every 3 days in winter.
It's in a lightly shaded south window. Lots of light.
Temps range. My room gets around 40 degrees at night in the winter.
And about 100 during the day in summer.

I use kelp extract every few weeks and fertilise at quarter strength with urea free formula twice a month.

If temps are your problem why not try semi hydro?
It's great for growing species that like cooler roots like zygopetalum.

You've never smelled a scented orchid?! You're missing out. I highly suggest purchasing one lol.

I so wish I could grow all these wonderful magnolia.

Amazing everyone!,,,

I think I lost my alba to a disease. So discouraging. It was a disease that came with the plant. I saw it all over the mother plant when I went to the nursery to ask a question about. It's a disease within and nothing topical or systemically can teat it. I pray it will come back. It's completely bare now.

Every time a little new growth starts to show, it rots off. Terrible

Kandhi, it's about 5 ft tall; it stays indoors Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall... all year lol : ) It dropped a few buds last month .. probably because of not getting enough sun, other than that, it seems pretty happy.

Kemistry, Indoors always.. why? Don't you get the spider mites problem maintaining it indoors, I always look for reasons to move my plants outdoors.. Anyhow, your plant looks very healthy and I hope it gives you more blooms. My M.alba in 4ft and is happy outside and am looking forward for more blooms this year. What fertilizer do you use, the leaves look very healthy?

Thanks guys. : )) Butterfly, you do need one! He he he. The first time I sniffed an alba was at my friend's house...xmas.. some years ago. it had only 1 bloom and i kept on going back to the tree to sniff it. I liked the fragrance then, but wasn't ga ga over it like I am now. Lol.

My mom said back in the days when she was a young girl, she remembers a michelia alba perfuming a street's block at night. This was also another reason I got the plant.

Ok guys and gals..I just did it..

I spent a whopping 79 dollars including shipping in that price I didn't have on another Alba..lol

I figured if I am always working my behind off, never buy myself ciggarettes, drink, I spend no money on bad vises, no one ever buys me anything, at least most of the time, I care for my parents and charge them nothing to stay with me, haven't bought myself anything in quite sometime, and worked overtime, I deserve it right?

Just trying to feel better about spending that kind of money before I puke....Me and my sudden impulses..

And I have spent more money on a meal for two just to see in go down the toilet the next day...

You only live once...I think that's enough excuses to make me feel a bit better about it...

Thanks Kemistry...ha

Good for you Mike. I have the same philosophy, my vices can be worse lol.

Ordphien, I maintain mines at 6 feet and thats including the height of a 12 gal pot. Mines been in there for years. It doesnt need to be huge to bloom well unlike Champaca. You most likely can trim it smaller than that, it blooms on new wood anyways and will send more off shoots from the trunk or older branches.

OK.. Hello everyone!!!

A friend emailed me to suggest that I buy a Michelia Alba!!

I have never seen one nor have i had the pleasure of smelling one..

Mike... May I ask where you ordered yours from? I have to give it time before another package arrives.. I'll wait until I'm on vacation so I can cut off the FedEx guy!!!

kemistry.. I love Foliage Pro too!!

I know I'm missing out on this beauty, but I don't know where to start to look! I think Logees is a place, but I think that someone might say to avoid them? Not sure... I appreciate any advise!!!

I need to share this pic of my Penang Peach Plumeria blooming ... It's a beauty!!!

Thanks everyone!!

Laura, Penang peach, I am really looking for one of these too, Dave in NOVA alwasy raves about this one, Too expensive to get from CA growers.

Michelia Alba, I got it from rareflora, they ship healthy decent size plants for reasonable price. I am always happy with purchases from them. If you ask them to add you to their waiting list they will call you when they are available. Always go for a grafted M.Alba so that you can enjoy the blooms sooner. In your area you can easily grow this without any problem in pots. Logees is reputable but their plant sizes are very small.

Oh Laura, you without an Alba??! And you thought you loved Plumeria..These tree will knock the socks off your feet in the most delicious scent you ever smelled...Oh how I miss mine when it bloomed last year, before a disease took hold...It's the only thing that filled the year up for more than a couple of months every morning..I miss it.

I ordered a 2nd plant in Fall of 2011 from Logee's and it was grafted and good size at about 1ft. What really mattered though was the trunk size as the thicker has more potential to produce fast growth when conditions are ripe. The plants they send are good for the price.

Here is it this morning.

Hi guys!

I've been spending all my time outside like Mike said and I'm still obsessed with brugs just like True Blue said. You guys know me well. :)

I've had lots of fragrant beauties blooming lately. Tonight I came home and could smell the 'Satisfaction' lilies before I came into the backyard.
It's one of my favs for scent. Not too spicy. Sorta reminds me of rosewood? It's as tall as me.

You might want to avoid Magnolia coco Ordphien. Its like the force of a hundred Alba flowers in one, releasing the melon scent in a concentrated form. Its good ar a distant, but sniffing it up close is like sticking your nose into a bottle of nail polish remover.

J4 and Singapore plumeria, M. coco and Chuck Hayes

In the past I have rated Singapores scent has very light, but lately it is starting to be more noticable from 5 ft away on a breeze yet its very subtle. It has a lemon like scent, similar to that of Aglaia.
