Got a flask 4 years ago from Marni and this is their first year flowering.
Wow, that is vivid! Nicely grown Mikhail.
Very cool Mantis on your site.
That's a nice red. I hope you get a bunch of across the board examples.
Thank you, much appreciated!
Yes each one seems to be varying in color, some red and some very orange. Ill post pics when the others are in full bloom. Some have 8 buds on them.
Nice color, is it a single plant? It looks like a very good size for 4 year out of flask!
Haha the "single" plant of cuth is fun. Definitely have had two different forms in one pot a few times.
Yes when I got them I placed each one on its own little mount. This is actually the small one out of the bunch. They have loved the greenhouse and grow much better out there than when they used to grow under lights.
Yes well worth the wait! It's fun seeing the different colors.
Update here are some more plants from the same flask, even the pink one. First time flowering for these.
A real beauty, beautiful colors, congratulations, you can give us suggestions of cultivation, thanks
Congratulations for your website.
Thank you, Bonino! I used to grow these under lights and since I moved them to the greenhouse they took off. They love natural sunlight. I just have a industrial swamp cooler I got off craigslist for $50. I replaced everything, motor, belt, pump all for under $120. My plants love it! The greenhouse stays around 77 F to 80 F during really hot days outside and drops down to 55 F or 60 F during the summer nights. I water it daily and sometimes twice in the summer months. I use tap water, my tap water has ppm of 50 and weekly fertilizer at 1/4 strength. Once a month I spray systemic fungicide on everything, less in summer time.
Thanks, very valuable information.
I noticed you have a great fortune: the tap water to 50 ppm, in Italy the water is very hard
