Wow, those are about twice as big as mine, Gonz, and super colors! Still giving them that cactus juice?

That's a nice Bill collection. You should be able to make some nice crosses with those.

What plant is in 0399?

Yikes, those last three Bills are fantastic. I was warned that they were going to look great...can't wait to swing by this weekend.

Gonzer,

They are all great looking plants, is the last one Ae. Mend?

Thanks,

Rick

Ah thanks! That was a really good and colourful way to start the day. Good to see what my Teng E is going to be when its grown up. And I definitely will have to add New Year's Eve and Shabby Chic to my list.

Is Delicioso also such a slow grower for you?

You grow a great Bill Gonz!

RE: psycho colors part 2

Thanks all. I'm very happy the way they're growing. With all the gray from my Tills it's nice to have some color.
Lisa, they only get "juiced" twice a season. I run the risk of too much strappiness for the sake of color.
Rick, that is 'Mend'.
Nick, just right-click the photo and hit "properties", it'll show you the name.
Japie, you bet it's slow! I'd say only DM is worse.

Hi Gonz,

What a great collection of colour! I've gotta get me some of that cactus juice.

How long are your pot hangers Gonz? I've often thought about hanging my Bill's to maximise the available light but couldn't get hangers long enough.

Thanks for sharing them with us.

All the best, Nev.

Hi Gonz,

Thank's for the info., Thank's but I don't need a link now, as I just received an email from one of our brom friends giving me an Aussie contact.

Wow! They are all looking good! I am ordering another 'Mend' as my current one has lost all it's pink and has burnt patches. Gonz, may I know what conditions is your Mend growing in?


 o
RE: psycho colors part 2

It's in an 8" (25cm) pot, mix is 50% small orchid nuggets, 50% good coarse potting soil and a handful or two of .75cm pumice. Hanging south facing with afternoon shading from maximum sun/heat.

How often do you water your potted broms?
