Fall pics of my yard
Nothing has grown really significantly since my last update, but this might be the last update with all my plants still outside.
Elephant ears blooming like crazy!
Plumeria pretty princess is going to be blooming in just a few weeks!
This is my largest plumeria. I hope to get it to bloom indoors but we shall see. Heres a pic of an inflo. forming on it.
There are 3 parlor palms in this pot and one of the 3 was eaten by an animal. It ate the entire growing point would have probably eaten all 3 plants if it wasnt for a nice clump of cacti right below it! Its a little hard to see the new growth it has in this picture so I made a circle to make it a little easier
My plumeria "Divine" continues to make blooms. I will probably be getting flowers from it for at least another month!!
My newest plumeria flower just opened today. It made a pretty huge flower!!! The only thing I didnt like about it was the lack of fragrance and color, but its still a really beautiful plumeria with more pointed petals than my other plumerias.
I used tape as a scale to give you an idea of the size of the flower.
I thought that my Alocasia lauterbachiana died this spring after it withered to the ground and the bulb was all mushy, but it managed to make new plants and is recovering really well. It might get to a noticeable size by this time next year!
My pindo palm is pushing another frond up making it 2 or 3 for the year. It hasnt gained much height though and looks pretty much the same as it did in the spring.
My coconut palm is in a sunnier spot now so it can soak up all the warmth it can get. Its quickly pushing a new frond off even after an animal ripped off the lower 2 fronds!!! Im also noticing that the coconut that its growing out of is starting to break a little which means that maybe by this time next year it wont even be growing out of a coconut anymore!
The coconut palm I bought from Hawaii is making its 1st leaf since I bought it and its 3rd leaf total. It didnt have any roots when I got it, but I think its starting to form some now. Im going to have to keep the pot warm during the winter indoors to keep it happy!
Emerging leaf on my largest coconut palm
Double peach hibiscus bloom
I got a little bit of the pygmy palm trunk in this pic of the hibiscus. Today the hibiscus had about 5 or 6 flowers on it, so its blooming almost as well as it has all summer.
Under the tree. One shrub was replaced after the shrub was damaged by an animal, so now cannas are there!
The pot with the queen palm in it used to have plants before an animal ate them all, and the majesty palm used to have fronds before it was also eaten :(
My new fig is almost as tall as my cannas. The fig will be in a different spot next year and overwintered in my garage since its a little late to plant it in the ground.
Thai Black Banana
My Musa Velutina has put made 2 leaves for the month I have had it. I hope that it stays healthy throughout the winter inside and does well when its planted in the ground this coming spring!
Hibsicus and oleander still blooming well.
The ginger are growing pretty fast
My sabal minor has replaced most of its fronds from last year. You cant really tell from this pic, but the fronds are starting to get pretty wide and big now! Im hoping for some blooms from it next spring.
Thanks for looking everyone. I hope we all have a mild fall and winter!!!
