Heygeno,

I fertilized heavy in the summer. But I feel I was fertilizing a little too much. I laid off the fert for about a month. When I started to see buds, I picked up on it a little.

Just MiracleGro

These are my Brugs now, and we had a Frost lastnight. Still blooming

And my babies are going strong

Guess it's time to play musical plants. Out during day, in during night.....

Heygeno,

Thos cuttings are all from this September. Getting them a little root before they go into a basement window for the rest of the winter.

Heygeno,

I will try to overwinter the large ones as well just to see how it will turn out. But I know I have the little abies as a back up. The larger ones we the same size as the little babies last October, so I at least now know I will have some nice plants next year.

The only reason I did so many was that so many visitors were in awe at the beauty, so I told them I would grow them one. I can then teach them how to grow cuttings and they can pass some on.

I would really like to get my hands on cuttings of different colors. I don't really feel like dropping money on-line but I might have to next spring. I would like a red or purple
