    And the Inca Embers. You can see my outrageously unruly tomatoes in the background. Bud and bloom still holding on!

    Heather, your new plants look GREAT in their new pots! I like your square translucent pots with the holes, very attractive. I'm surprised the IE flower and bud are still on the spike, that is a good sign! The mother IE dropped her bloom but the next bud is growing on the spike.

    Phrag ecua looks so much better in the new pot than that cheap plastic pot that wouldn't stay upright. Sorry, I didn't have a small pot for the ecua, so I had to use that cheapie.

    Well, your plants look very happy and I'm glad they are with you! Hope you enjoy them for a long long long time!

    Thanks Peter! Yes I love those square aircone pots. I need to gte some more of those from KK.

    So you don't think the ecua. looks overpotted? It was the trickiest one, being so small. I've been giving it plenty of water.

    Me too!

    Phrag ecua looks fine. I know that one is a little tricky because of the runner. I don't see any holes on the sides. IE flower is very difficult to see with the tomato plants in the background.

    You caught me!
    The pot is so small, I was really afraid it would crack when I drilled it, and I only had one that size. But, it has four large drainage holes (like slits really), one on each side going into the bottom. Hopefully that will be sufficient.

    Yes, that should be ok for the ecua since they are more terrestrial and need lots of water.

    Heather, the bent leaf on that SB really bugged me. Hope it doesn't bug you as much!
