I stopped to take a few pictures tonight when I took my daughter to school, and look what I found! First...a Deep Sea Crinum, which I felt was so pretty with it's dainty little blooms! I had to take a pic for my blogger friend, WICKED GARDENER!!! This one is just for you, Wicked!!!
Then I found a Stapelia Gigantea with a big old bloom (about 7 inches in diameter)...covered in flies! This one is for my blogger buddy, CLAUDE, cause he is waiting for his to bloom (well, I am waiting for mine to bloom also)!
Now this is a very sad picture, and I actually did get a tear in my eye when I discovered the condition of some of my succulents tonight. They were still moved to the inner side of my screenroom since the tropical storm blew through last week, and I was holding out on moving them back on their shelves because there is another storm out over Haiti. I walked out to water a few of the plants that need it...and discovered my brand spankin new Thai Crown of Thorns...just sort of melted and is deadish! Oh my goodness. I started flinging all my plants back onto the shelves...got everyone a drink, and hopefully they will enjoy all their fresh air and sunshine tomorrow. This poor baby had to go to plant heaven. I'm sad. This happened in just 7 days. Meanwhile all the succulents outdoors, in full sun, fresh air, and sunshine and doing great. So I say, if it is temporary...I would err on the side of more air movement, sunshine and more water rather than less. If possible. End of sad tale. Goodnight.
