This is Sam and he is
very happy this morning.

Thank you Barbra/Honeymoon

Barbra sent me this last
fall and I have been pampering
him to make sure he felt welcome
here in Florida.

RE: Sam

Absolutely stunning~ I love the chifon texture type doubles but there aren't that many. That's the best pink I've seen.

So Choco, stop teasing us and tell us what's in the soil! Maybe it's lighter than ours or heavier, need to know! And what you're feeding it. What kind of light do you have?
I saw honeymoon to, is that plant mottled with yellow? That's fantastic to.

You have a wonderful hand with brugs.
By the way, keep teasing!!! - Sandy

Awe Sandy, There is nothing special about the
Soil here. They are planted in the poorest soil
around here and for some reason they are growing
like they like for me to leave them along.

So I have not done anything special to them but
have forgotten several times they were around
the house so they went liking on watering and
feeding them.

See I told you he has a green thumb! There are people in this world who can grow trees from tooth picks, and CB is one of them. I am so glad that Sam does well for you. Maybe mine will bloom this year too, I kept it outside during the winter, it starting to come back from the roots. Barbra,

RE: Sam

Barb/honeybunny, You have to be proud of this
one, it will do wonderful for you there in the
Texas heat. This one Gets the brutal Sun all
day long and never seems to take a bow from the
heat. So today it stands about four feet tall
and was the first to start blooming in flushes.

RE: Sam

Well I wouldn't have believed that if God told me! Nope, just me daydreaming again...lol. Ok. so re-program brain to starve brugs occasionally, ummm, I'm not sure I'll be good at that, but I'll remember not to be heavy handed with the water. I also learn that just because a brug's leaves are wilting doesn't necessarily mean it's thirsty if it's HOT outside and the only way to know is to wait until it cools outside, usually at night and see if they perk up. Of coarse, one can question how long it's been since it's been watered. I hate root die back. It sets my plants months behind and can happen either under OR over watering. But like Karyn once said, you can recover a brug's roots if they've dryed a bit but you can't recover rotten roots or stem. Just a reminder for others, obviously you don't need to hear this Choco!

One more question - is your soil there sandy? I believe perlite is suppose to do the same job for drainage.
