RE: Can't wait to see it open up!!!!! ;)

Chuy


 o
RE: Can't wait to see it open up!!!!! ;)

LOL, Greg! Yes! Open, Open, Open! JoJo, I liked that Mervyn's commercial (one fo our favorite stores to shop-sorry to see it close up)!

Chuy, I'll venture to say your plant is Orbea variegata. The pod shouldn't get too much bigger. I think it'll open any day now! =)


 o
RE: Can't wait to see it open up!!!!! ;)

Rosemarie... thank you! I am so anxious to see it open up :)... never had anything like this... every!!

RE: Can't wait to see it open up!!!!! ;)

Remember the Carly Simon song ANTICIPA-A-TION?

Should be pretty cool.


 o
RE: Can't wait to see it open up!!!!! ;)

RE: Can't wait to see it open up!!!!! ;)

Thanks, Chuy! =) Thanks, Aztcqn & Karen...I've had Carly's song in my head for days now! :P


 o
RE: Can't wait to see it open up!!!!! ;)

Thanks for the update! It looks good !! but please tell it we love blooms and we may not be as patient as you. ;-) lol


 o
RE: Can't wait to see it open up!!!!! ;)

Rosemarie, it is funny how a song can get stuck! lol


 o
RE: Can't wait to see it open up!!!!! ;)

Finally!!!!!! Spectacular!!!! ;).

Chuy


 o
RE: Can't wait to see it open up!!!!! ;)

Woooooo Hooooooooooo!!
Yay, it bloomed!
Congrats on your first bloom!

It's beautiful!!!
I thinks it's the Orbea variegata that Rosemariero mentioned up thread.
I think these flowers are just too cool!

JoJo


 o
RE: Can't wait to see it open up!!!!! ;)

Gorgeous and nice plant!


 o
RE: Can't wait to see it open up!!!!! ;)

Yes, it's BEAUTIFUL! Worth the wait! Congrats! Yes, Orbea variegata.


 o
RE: Can't wait to see it open up!!!!! ;)

Oh man! That's a beautiful flower, Chuy. The patterns and shape is so nice. I've always been put off because some tend to attract flies. This one seems bug free. ;]
Haha, Rosemariero, I, actually, first thought of Fran n Furter from Rocky Horror Picture Show " So come up to the lab and see what's on the slab. I see you shiver with antici... pation" But, then Joni and the ketchup commercial immediately interceded...
:D


 o
RE: Can't wait to see it open up!!!!! ;)

Thank you all for your nice comments!! Makes me happy to know others enjoy it as well! I actually took it for a ride today to show off!! I text my brother a pic of it and couldn't believe his eyes. He didn't believe it was real. ;-). I had to prove it. Lol

Kathi... I love the mother plant and am thankful for her! :)
I want MORE!!! :) lol..
JoJo- Hijole can be translated as "oh, wow!!", "oh my!!", and for those that are young at heart and hip :)- "oh snap!"

Chuy


 o
RE: Can't wait to see it open up!!!!! ;)

Chuy,
Thanks for the translation! :-) I'm in the 40+ crowd so "oh wow"! or "oh my! " works for me. lol... Although young at heart.. Oh snap just doesn't do it for me. LOL!


 o
RE: Can't wait to see it open up!!!!! ;)

Mama plant's flowers make perfect pot decorations!
Hijole con un hay caramba for sure on that bloom!

RE: Can't wait to see it open up!!!!! ;)

In the next week or so i'm going to be working on the garden that these are in,so more than likely will have some more cuttings as they break easily.Anyone that wants any for postage and the USA only,send me an email thru my page,and i'll take orders on a first come,first served basis.
