    Default Remember that post about that plant....

    Some time ago, in some thread, I made some posts about a plant that I had relagated to the compost pile (actually compost bag in my case), that had perversely thrown out a spike when I went to add another plant to the bag a couple weeks later. The spike was about 12". So I potted the darn thing back up, and here is the current status:


    spike over 3 ft.

    What's the plant, Diane?

    And of course you realize that after putting out some lovely blooms, it will then assume it has earned its way into your good graces for awhile, and it won't do a damned thing for the next three years!

    interesting... very interesting...

    ok, so... maybe it isn't the threat of death at all but the ethylene or whatever gas is given off by the compost mixture that gets these babies spiking...

    It's a Bllra, Marfitch 'Howards Dream' I believe. And with that one little growth, after it blooms it's going BACK TO THE BAG!!!
