There's more, but this will have to do for now. As always critique and feedback are invited.


PS. I know that the Little Kunzite has a double crown - she decided to sprout one while I was gone. I'll have to take care of that when I return from my trip.

Beautiful! Such profuse flowering! Did you grow those under grow lights or in natural light? And inquiring minds want to know what you used for fertilizer

RE: Brag Post #2

In my empty milk gallon jug I put:

1) water which I let sit for one or two days with open top.
Then I add:
2) 1/4 tsp of Dyna Gro Grow -or- Dyna Gro Bloom (depending on what I am trying to accomplish with the plants.)
3) ONE DROP of SuperThrive
4) 1/2 teaspoon of Physan 20

I'll put the cap back on and tilt it a bit. I don't shake cause the Physan can make bubbles if shaken.

That's the fluid that I use to water in wick jars as well as from the top of plants and into saucers where pots sit.

Your pictures are wonderful. I wish I could find a Little Kunzite, Kunz was my maiden name.

I'm trying to collect all of the Optimara Little Gems series, Little Kunzite is one of them--and one of the ones I still need....
I'll pay you for leaves or a sucker or whatever.... Email me if interested :-)

Nice head of bloom!
