23 Feb, 2010

23 Feb, 2010

 

It looks like the top of a tree fern with the dead leaves removed,but is the plant dormant ? I don't think you would have bought a dead one lol :)

They can take up quite a bit of room San.....

23 Feb, 2010

 

yes i gather that alice,, been reading, would love one for my new area but its keeping it over winter thats the problem lol, i need a bigger house and garden and greenhouse :o))

23 Feb, 2010

 

Thanks for being such good sports, there is one outright winner,.......and it is..........Amblealice!! it is a colocasia, I was just about to tell you how big it was, it is the size of a large orange. I was amazed when I saw it too, hope it grows as it cost me a fiver!!!! had to look on the internet to see which way up to plant it lol, the instructions on the packet said grow in water or mud?

23 Feb, 2010

 

Well Done Amblealice :) I really enjoyed playing this DD :)

24 Feb, 2010

 

Colocasia . . .would never have guessed it ! It's enormous !

24 Feb, 2010

 

Thank you (blush).....I have several of these lovely plants....yes San, you will need that greenhouse or a conservatory to keep 'em in over winter.
DD....they need a lot of water when they are growing....but I woudn't start them off in it. I remember when I got my first bulb, it took a while to get going. I suggest you pot it up with the top just below the surface of the compost, and give it some bottom heat if you can......best of luck with it!

24 Feb, 2010

 

thanx alice, will have to clear my spare room out then i can get some of these lovely plants that need over wintering :o))

24 Feb, 2010

 

Thanks Amblealice, hubby just planted it, will keep everything crossed.
J glad you enjoyed my little quiz. if I get anything else a bit odd will do another one.
Sanbaz you know what they say nothing ventured...........so give it a go, there are so many knowledgeable folk on here to help us.

Yes, I know...:) Will it be potted or...?

26 Feb, 2010

 

Is it related to the African Mask Plant?

26 Feb, 2010

 

Uma it will go in the ground, ( if it grows, ha ha) I am watching it daily, giving it some bottom heat as suggested.

27 Feb, 2010

 

A back slash??? That's all I see! Lol!

28 Feb, 2010

 

I finally found the answer to my question about the African Mask Plant..
It is and Alocasia 'Black Velvet'. so it is related..I thought it looked familiar...after loving the African Mask Plant I had so much....
