    Barbados cherry slow to grow

    I’ve never had a problem with scale on any of mine, but to be fair the only trees I’ve had with scale were citrus. Glad to hear they’re doing good though!

    Barbados cherry slow to grow

    They seem to grow in phases. Super hot and humid summers are when they explode. Right now I would think it’s fine, normal, for it to be in one of the stalled phases as it’s still coming out of winter. The sooner it gets hot the sooner it will start growing good again. When happy they can put on...

    Candles seem to be quite far along for this early in the season...? @Adair M , I forgot to get the systematic fungicide for the needle cast... slipped my mind as I just had too much going on. Too late to protect these needles from it?

    Flowers 2019

    I have three of his cuttings, two were wired and planted in grow beds, and even being small cuttings at the time they produced a wonderful variety of blooms last year. Absolute winner IMO, and so is that kindsai. A couple of the flower types I saw.

    Carnivorous plants?

    Ri Right sarracenia, sundews, and VFT can take full sun but I definitely didn’t think Nepenthes would prefer it. I kept mine under the bench last summer and that worked well for me, it got direct morning sun for an hour or two

    Carnivorous plants?

    Haha so I see! Before the last year or so I didn’t know any botanical terms, so I assumed most enthusiasts don’t either. Speaking of ancient, isn’t the related genus Heliamphora considered basal to Sarracenia? They come from the Tepuis of Venezuela I believe, and so that would make sense as...

    Carnivorous plants?

    You should look up their flower anatomy, very very strange flowers unique to sarraceniaceae. I don’t know if you know any basic flower anatomy, but for those that do they’re weird- fused umbrella like styles, 5 separate stigmas. Large, too

    Carnivorous plants?

    I think this is Nepenthes alata, not certain though. Interestingly, it grows bright red pitchers in intense sun, and half red half green pitchers in shade. Grows very well in my apartment window or under the Bonsai bench in the summer.

    Which species of Trident maple does this look like?

    In any case, I much prefer the smoother/rounder look of the Taiwanese variety, as opposed to the tridents I have with almost Acer rubrum like leaves. I have one seedling that has leaves somewhat like that, but it’s doubtful it’s the true Taiwanese one.

    Carnivorous plants?

    Let me know if you want help! It’s really not too extensive, so far it’s been easy to take care of. All the species in the bowl don’t like the same environment, so I’m expecting some to do better than others but I certainly had to at least try to push the limits. Just make sure that they have...

    Future Shimpaku LiteratiLiterati

    I hadn’t planned on a repot, but I am slightly worried about the condition of the roots/soil. It was planted too high in the pot for starters. If it’s not too late I may prioritize that as opposed to a cutback.

    Utricularia inflata, native to my area as are the Drosera. And thanks! The bowl houses Cephalotus, VFT, Utricularia, Pinguicula, Drosera, Liverworts, live Sphagnum Moss, and some flowering weedy plants.

    Treeblers verses 'Taters...

    I wonder if this style originated from super old collected Tibetan Juniperus indica. Would make a lot of sense for the founders to model it after this
