Louis it is amazing so exotic.

No DD, I bought it at a GC about 3 years ago, it wasn't expensive about £5;99 i think, but knowing me I would of got it half price in Autumn probably.. :)

Thank you ladies ............ I did not grow it from seed DD, I bought it as a young plant, and as YDD said, they are not that expensive, but try to get a two or three year old plant or older. Good Luck..............:-)

I have this plant....Its been in the same pot for about 4 years....Its very spikey isn't it?...dont know how i'm ever going to get it out....Mine looks exactly like yours Louis....:>)

That's right Motinot, this plant is quite spikey. If your plant is doing well in the pot, I should leave it there, unless you want to get some cuttings. Do you leave the pot outside all winter? ........... :-)

Louis have been looking for this plant online......it is a moss, has the name changed? because I found it under Fascicularia bicolor, there is a fantastic site I expect you know it called Shoot, which gives you all the information you need and where to buy the plants, so, now I can get one..........getting poorer by the week!!!!!

Don't panik Dottydaisy2, maybe I have slelled it wrong. You will not regret getting one, because it is so easy to look after....in fact I do not do anything to it at all. I leave them outside all year round, as I've got them on the ground. Come rain, frost, snow.....it always pulls through....... I hope I have not spoken too soon hehe!!!
I have not heard of the site Shoot, so will take a peak and see, thank you for letting me know :-)
Oh by the way, when you get your plant, leave it in the pot until next year, as it's not worth planting it in the ground, that is, if you are going to plant it on the ground..... Good Luck...and hey, don't feel guilty spending a couple of pounds in a plant LOL!!!! Happy Gardening............ :-)

Yes they are Morgana, it's very rewarding, when their colours starts to show. It has taken me three years to get the full colours to show........They survive the winter.....

8 Nov, 2009

 

Well done on achieving bringing it to this stage, thank you for letting me know its hardy.

8 Nov, 2009

Managed to get one on ebay, very pleased with it, will keep it in the pot as suggested, really looking forward to watching it grow.

8 Nov, 2009

 

Well done Daisy. That's right, keep it in the pot, and plant it in a sunny position next year, and it will thrive.............Good luck :)

Well done DD, What size did you buy ?

10 Nov, 2009

 

Hello YDD, hope you're doing well.........:))

10 Nov, 2009

 

I am Louis, Have you Sorted your garden for winter?

10 Nov, 2009

 

Good to know, you're doing well YDD......Yes, nothing much going on at the moment in my garden.....Looks boring and empty. Wish I could go to sleeep and wake up in the Spring LOL!!! Mind you, my greenhouse is full of plants though, and it keeps me busy on these cold days. The temp at the moment in the greenhouse is 20c, sometimes it might drop just a bit, but does not go over 20c. So if I am in the garden and it's cold, I go to the greenhouse and warm up, and listen to the radio at the same time LOL !!!
So how about your garden? I like the colours in your garden, with your nice sitting area, and colourful fabrics.......:)))

10 Nov, 2009

 

YDD I will put a picture on for you to see.

10 Nov, 2009
