A little big for what?
Welwitschia mirabilis, i've never seen one in person, but I have seen pics and they get huge!
So what? I don't see the relevance of your statement. This wasn't a thread about one's favorite MINIATURE non-orchid.
I was just wondering how someone could care for it.
If I have to spell it out: I was expressing my displeasure at the discourse occurring here between you and Marni.
Since I might have brought this thread to a screeching halt, I might as well be the one to send it back on it's original course.
Another favorite is the old fashioned Violet. I didn't get a picture this year since it was raining nearly every day when it was in bloom. This plant was a division from my sister whose division was from our mom who got hers from an old family friend over 40 years ago.
and Calochortus alba. This died when we had weird unseasonal weather. Looking for new sources.
My grandmother had violets as long as I can remember. Wonderful...
I should add that old family friend, Mrs. Barnes, was the beginning source of my Dad's orchid collection when we moved back here (although there is a much older pic of him with a bare root Cym.). She was my source for 7Up, See's candies and Baskin Robbins ice cream!
I love violets!!!
I have 6 sp. on my property.
You should see my backyard. Can't get rid of them...
I have the same problem exept it's not a problem, I love them!!!
Fumiaki, they grow slow so it's nots like I have a 6 meter set of leaves.
I have about 6 grown from seed and a couple others that are 20+ years old. They've all come from trading within university collections.
I also very much appreciate calochortus kennedyi. I was always in awe when I would see them bloom growing up in the desert.
Here I introduce a very special non orchid from kerala state, India.That is Neelakurinji
Kurinji or Neelakurinji (Strobilanthes kunthianus) is a shrub that is found in the shola forests of the Western Ghats in South India. Nilgiri Hills, which literally means the blue mountains, got their name from the purplish blue flowers of Neelakurinji that blossoms only once in 12 years. Of all long interval bloomers (or plietesials) Strobilanthes kunthianus is the most rigorously demonstrated, with documented bloomings in 1838, 1850, 1862, 1874, 1886, 1898, 1910, 1922, 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970 1982, 1994, and 2006 ..... The species is known as Neelakurinji in Kerala .
Some Kurinji flowers bloom once every seven years, and then die. Their seeds subsequently sprout and continue the cycle of life and death.
The Paliyan tribal people living in Tamil nadu used it as a reference to calculate their age.
Species: S. kunthianus
