Anyone out there rowing mushrooms that can give me some pointers? Just purchased a variety of spores without doing much research! Help!

Look at all the flys! I take it this is a 'fragrant' arum! LOL! I haven't looked at my Plant delights catalog yet. And I LOVE their covers. Somewhere I have covers from years and years ago!

Cool plant for sure Grant. I have some corpse bulbs they brought up the tree in the summer but no blooms in the winter, so we will try again this year, the bulbs still look healthy so I will just wait patiently, and hopefully one of my sons or (hopefully) their wives will appreciate them 20 yrs from now. (if it's still alive)

Any body growing this (fox tail agave)? I find it very interesting.

Striking plant Grant.

Grant, how beautiful. Such hardy little plants aren't they, plus the variegated leaves really add something extra don't they?

I love Gazania, but a variegated form? What's not to love?

It's a jaw dropper for sure .. in my quest to find this one I'm stumbling across more and more Schisandra species!

You're right Anne, the rubriflora is exquisite. If you ever do find a source please share.

Cheeful Coleus

"Took "orders" for my containers & hanging baskets today & nearly 20 people are on the list. So I am not worried I will have too many of these combos left when June rolls around! Now all blooming by Mother's Day? Maybe not. . ."
