Two little stars


Two little stars

Pleione Tongariro and Snow White, very little trouble for such lovely flowers ~ out all summer in their pot in the shade, just bring them in to flower!

Yes that's the one, its a very delicate colouring on the lip more yellow than green.

a beautiful photo ST & such an achievement, getting them to flower again is the trick but so well worth it.

Beautiful colour contrast. The upper one is my favourite blue colour - I have summer shoes of that colour :)
Lovely.

Thanks Bampy ~ its you i have to thank ~ for the bulbs and the instructions! the shady garden most likely helped?

does the top one look blue kat? sorry its pure white, but pale blue would be very nice im sure

they were outside for most of the year delonix under a camellia, they probably got no sun, but they had water, i kept them in the pot and then brought them in to flower in january. gorgeous arent they?

here are some lovely photos of Bampy's pleiones:

thanks treetop ~ i love these little plants, i think its because they are so vibrant, so bright but delicate and miniature.

28 Feb, 2013

Really beautiful Sticki

thanks cinderella, pretty little things arent they ~ i have some more on the go now!

1 Mar, 2013

 

I had some Sticki but I didn't have any luck with them. I think the bulbs weren't very good, but having seen how well yours are doing I think I may try again. They are certainly beautiful.

Oh definitely worth trying Cinderella, I will let you know how I get on with the new ones, I received them on Tuesday, every one with a little bud if a shoot but one already had a shoot over an inch long!
