  Spider plant
Posted by: megantic - 09-15-2005, 02:53 PM - Forum: Gardening - Replies (1)

I know this is an old post, and I wish I had know about this site sooner but I will try to help anyway in the off chance that you check in. After planting in a decent potting soil, water regularly, but most important, I found that my spider plants thrive in filtered (not direct) light in a nice 65-ish degree room. If you can find a spot to put your plant that is similar to these conditions, you will have significantly less or even no browning. Give it a try.

  Crocosmia
Posted by: Janet17953 - 09-14-2005, 09:50 PM - Forum: Gardening - No Replies

New to gardening and I bought a Crocosmia "Lucifer" it bloomed when I first planted it and now I am losing it. I thought rabbits were eating it but it is rabbit resistanat. I sprinkled blood meal around it and then I started to lose it. I sprinkled Sevin on it for insects but I have cut off 2 stalks so far and am losing another. I took the mulch away thinking it was holding too much water around it and so far nothing is helping. If there is anybody that can help please do so before I have to cut it all down.

  canna
Posted by: marie - 09-09-2005, 02:19 PM - Forum: Gardening - Replies (1)

Quote:I fell in love with giant red cannas given to me by a friend. Last year i also purchased 5 different colored varieties. In the fall I dug them up and seperated each color variety in its own labeled box for easy planting in the spring. This year they ALL grew into giant red cannas. None were the yellow, pink, or orange varieties. This strange phenomenom also happened to two of my friends. What happened to our yellow, pink and orange canna? Thanks..Marie [color:red] [/color]

the video showed using leaves for mulch around a plant, but also using petunia's just pulled out of the ground in the fall and placed over the plant being mulched whith a layer of leaves over that.

  Alabastar Clematis - Want to change location
Posted by: LindaR - 08-18-2005, 07:04 AM - Forum: Gardening - Replies (1)

Before you move your clematis, consider that clematis "like their heads in the sun and their feet in the shade." Are you shading the roots with a shorter plant or a thick mulch? Are you fertilizing? I have no experience in moving clematis, so I can't help you there.

  Sunflowers-what happened?
Posted by: mompea - 08-04-2005, 02:29 AM - Forum: Gardening - No Replies

I planted sunflower seeds and out of 25 or so plants I only had maybe 10 bloom with beautiful heads. The others just grew stunted and produced a mass of black seeds with no petals around the seed mass. This occurred interspersed with the "normal" looking sunflowers. Any idea what happened? The seeds were fresh, the soil was ammended and every other plant is growing well in my garden except these easy to grow sunflowers. I've never seen anything like it. The stalks are stunted to about 2' tall-the normal looking plants are about 5-6' tall- with just this globular mass of seeds-it's not even the flat looking seed center that accompanies the usual sunflower.
