Love your orchids, I remember now you showing me a few photos earlier they are beautiful. I've got one orchid (well it's my wife's) and three African Violets that for now I have in the greenhouse. They weren't getting enough sun in the house so I moved them out there to a shelf I have the will give them light but keep the leaves shaded from the sun to avoid burning.  I've got to get some large tubs at Wal-Mart though to fill with water to provide some humidity over the summer. I'm in Zone 8 smack dab in the middle of Texas.

my confederate jasmine, I bought from online nursery, 3 years ago. 2nd time I had used an online nursery, inexpensive and worked out well. 1st time was a pussy willow I had sent to a friend in MN. It was just a twig, now it is like a full blown tree about 8-10 feet tall! But my jasmine is blooming now, love the aroma, and I am training it around one of my palms, which it is taking nicely to.

took one bulb of dancing lady orchids, several years ago from a friends plant, put at base of oak tree, it is now surrounding base.  getting ready to pop, this is last years pic

some of my orchids the other day

Comment by BikerBonnie on April 5, 2015 at 6:04am

Ever hear of devils backbone?  I asked for a piece, at a yard sale, now I have 5 pots of it.  Just stick a piece in dirt, do that a lot with my orchids too.  devils backbone because of stem crookedness (varigated also)

Comment by BikerBonnie on April 5, 2015 at 5:47am

zone 9. I haven't done a lot from seed, I mostly propagate plants from cuttings

Comment by Chris Pollock on April 4, 2015 at 10:17pm

That's a Blood Lily Bonnie? That's beautiful! What zone are you in? I save the pots plants come in from places like Lowes, wash them out real good and use for seed starters.

Comment by BikerBonnie on April 4, 2015 at 9:50pm

always picking up planters at yard sales & thrift shops, can get some beauties for like 50 cents! Most expensive thing I buy is potting soil!

Comment by BikerBonnie on April 4, 2015 at 9:47pm

I've got Jasmine, iris's and orchids, blooming right now. I have loads of the Asparagus fern, it just takes over, but I love my foxtail fern, I divided that a long time ago and made more plants, I think time to do it again.  I have blood lily bulbs an old pioneer gave me, had two, but they have multiplied over the last 2 years, now I have five! I will post a pic of one, from last year , not in bloom yet.

Comment by Chris Pollock on April 4, 2015 at 9:36pm

Thanks Bonnie, being retired it gives me something to do, doesn't cost a lot of money, and it's a real accomplishment when you can grow something from seeds or a leaf cutting or whatever.
