Here are a few of today's pics. :yes:
My guess is, starting at 3 o'clock and going clockwise, Chocolate mint, 6 o'clock looks like water celery, 9 o'clock looks like purple pikeral, but may be thalia, and at twelve is probably an iris,...
Here are a few new pics from today!:D:
Taking pics between the rain drops is not easy. :D: Here are some new blooms from today.
Romewhip, the first is Chowning, the second is Clyde Redmond, and the last one is L. Colce. If interested let me know.
Here are some pics from today! :D:
Seeing these blooms showing up profusely is a delight. And they are coming on strong now. :uggg: :D:
So here are the two tropical lilies that have bloomed so far! :rofl2:
The lilies are starting to bloom and some are tropical! :toot::yahoo:
Here are a few new-to-me varieties! :D: They have been growing in my bog pond since last summer. :yahoo:
You have a PM message.
I have had it happen to me on occasion. :)
You can put an inch or so more soil if done slowly, pouring the soil in rather than dumping it in. The plants will most likely be okay as they are, however, since they continue to go back into the...
Have you fertized them? They may need dividing or separating.
Although these plants in the greenhouse started blooming a few weeks ago, the ones outside in the ponds are just now starting to bloom! They stayed outside all winter despite it being a rough winter...
These beautiful blooms started showing up this week as they were in the bog pond and not in the green house. Although some do not like them because the spread quickly, they can be easily controlled...
I received my exchange plants today! Thanks biggie! They look great! I was a little late getting them because I have been on vacation so did not get them until today but they all are looking good. ...
Advertise them in your paper or if you have it local, Craigslist. From the lily prices that have been mentioned here on KP from those who live in Canada, you should have lots of interest.
Great to hear that. Post pic when it puts up aerial pads.
If you do not see any living growing tips, the plant is most likely dead. a living tip is green in color and I do not see any green in your pic. Where the roots are growing is where leaf stems form,...
I think it is possible the plants are a little confused when the weather got warm they started to grow and then it got cooler so they may have slowed down. Mine have done the same thing. I expect...
Thanks, minnowman. Your blooms are terrific!
The Black Gamecock irises are really putting up the blooms. You can get them now for next years blooms. if not this year!
Seems like that is what i said.
Coptic was for fun. You heralded the name "lily cop" so I thought about "cop like" and decided "coptic" would work. :rofl2:
Your rebuttal was already heard on your thread. No use in quoting it here. I have given my opinion as John gave his. Members can decide what they feel would work for them. I also read that John had...
Steve, this may be the wrong place to ask, but what is a CKK in training? My guess? Certified Koi Keeper! :toot: :rofl2:
It appears I should have to qualify my response. If you are a professional grower with a pond full of tubers and your medium is sand, you might feel through the sand to find tubers. With a pond full...
You do not have to be a "professional" to grow a lotus. It is as easy as putting a tuber in the dirt and letting it grow. They do not have to be planted in a pond or even put in a pond. They work...
I cut my basjoo bananas off at the ground and mulch over them for the winter. They started coming up a few weeks ago and some are now almost three feet tall.
I received this arum last year and was excited to see it "bloom" a few days ago.
Your blooms are beautiful, Minnowman. Which ones are your hybrids?
You can find planting instructions on my website under the tab "About the Plants." The website is www.matherfish.com.
If you can't saw it, take a hammer and bust the container, using the claw side. That is assuming it is a plastic can. :D:
Two easy ways that I use mainly . Tropical lily pads are "scalloped" edges and hardy lilies have smooth edges on their pads, generally.
The second way to tell "by looking" is by their tuber. A...
Chances are, your timy goldfish and very small koi are not producing a lot of fertilizer. I would suggest a small amount if fertilizer at this time and increasing the amout on the next feeding....
My basjoo bananas get 12-14 feet tall. Will you pot keep them from falling over? Of course in a pot they may not get as tall.
Those are beautiful, Green! If you have an extra spare of Blink to trade, let me know. Post a pic of Green Maiden also when it blooms. Thanks for posting!
Deb, that really looks nice. I think your grass is called spike rush. Post pics through the summer as your plants grow.
You may have had runners formed which are not very thick, or tubers which are right along the sides or very bottom. It is possible that they died over the winter. Since you are still not seeing any...
Beautiful pond and landscaping!
Thank, everyone. Post your "first bloom" on this thread if you want. Would be nice to see what lilies bloom first around the country or countries.
The first hardy lily to bloom outside this year opened its petals today. It is a Pink Beauty! Welcome spring! :D:
Outstanding beauty! Love that last one, especially.
Very unusual! Beautiful!
Congratulations on your new hybrids! They look great!
Thanks. I have found a trade maybe, but if it does not work out, and no other trades, I will try one of those businesses. I appreciate your telling me of them.
I am looking for Mickey Mouse Taro. Anyone want to trade? PM me or email email@example.com

Glad they arrived safely.
Thanks, and happy ponding!
