Gloriosa "Rothschildiana" (Gloriosa superba (Buch Nak Hindi))

Finally one of my Gloriosa has started blooming. Not a good year to not have a conservatory............

How on earth do you do it without a conservatory Meanie? I've always loved this plant. They were selling it in the streets of Amsterdam last May when we were there....very tempting!

In the greenhouse Karen!

Get tubers from here...................

This vine isn't all that easy to grow even here in subtropical, San Diego. You are very lucky to get one to grow so well!

Kasy; sorry, I meant to add that I can't as it's a listed building.

Thanks Delonix. I suggest that it may be too dry for them to do well in SoCal? They like water when in growth.

Meanie:

In my case, I think it's the soil. They like better fertile soil (we can always water). I have seen some and have read the tubers here can be left in the ground all year.

I did have one, once. It was pretty slow...but, did grow and bloomed for two years (of course, it died back the end of fall and regrew in spring).

I keep forgetting that mine are repotted every spring..............

Do you store the tubers?

22 Aug, 2012

 

no worries Meanie:) I think the greenhouse would do a trick as well:)

22 Aug, 2012

 

I just dry the pot out and store frost free Delonix. Then I repot them in the spring.

24 Aug, 2012

 

Dead! Got forgot about in the chaos of the house move and was accidently left outdoor when I got here...............

24 Aug, 2012

 

Very beautiful! I was thinking of trying this one, is it easy to grow?

24 Aug, 2012

i have 5 nice sized ones if you want 2 of them let me know i'll send them to you..

25 Aug, 2012

 

I'd love them! But can you send them to Ohio?

25 Aug, 2012

 

I've just checked Violeteyes and they are very touchy about plants from abroad it would get stopped at customs unless i have a proper cites certificate sorry.

25 Aug, 2012

 

I'd love one!
I'll pm you later/tmrw, as I'm just off out..........

25 Aug, 2012
