RE: H. aulicum (Follow-Up #7)

posted by: mariae on 12.06.2008 at 04:29 am in Amaryllis/Hippeastrum Forum

Pat, it is wonderful, I never imagine it could be so beautiful, congrats!!!
How long does this specie takes to bloom? Does it needs more or less humidity that the regular hybrids? Does it likes it more warm temperature or it takes some low temperature (into the higher 40's)? So many questions, sorry.

Maria, if you go to Mauro Peixoto page you will find several kinds of aulicums' seeds, they are all beautiful, I contact him last week, such a nice person he answers me right away (usually at night) but this week his out of town so you may have to wait till he returns.
A little extra, I'm sure you must know this but I can't resist to sound somehow knowledge (I am definitely not). Hippeastrum aulicum var. glaucophylum is the same as Hippeastrum corrierensis.
Another source in which you will found this as a bulb not seed is in, this is Kevin Preuss, nice too, but he takes his time (not to long) to answer.
I've been trying to locate an Hippeastrum pardinum seeds or small bulb (not so pricy) but haven't been successful yet. I really like species an the rare ones, if anyone knows of this one please contact me.
Maria E.

RE: Billbergia season (Follow-Up #6)

posted by: bromeliaddict on 11.15.2007 at 11:49 pm in Bromeliad Forum

In the past, my fertilizing regime has been basically not to fertilize the Billbergias, or quite sparingly with a fish emulsion based 0-10-10 fertilizer. Something that happened a couple of years ago was a real eye opener for me. A local greenhouse received a large shipment of Bill. 'Hallelujah'. They were treated as any other tropical that they grow- fertilized with a balanced fertilizer to the point that the Billbergias got all big and green. I convinced the grower to stop fertilizing, and rather amazingly, after a few months much of the desirable red foliage hues had returned. The revelation for me came when the plants bloomed a few months after that. I have never seen such spectacular inflorescences on a Billbergia, so it seems that there is some correlation to nitrogen in the development of blooming. I suppose that if the leaves are healthy, then the plants are better able to utilize the other nutrients that are offered to them. Since then, I have been using a product called Schulz cactus liquid plant food. Primary nutrients are listed 2-7-7. It's low enough in nitrogen that I feel I can use it most of the year. I use it at the recommended strength about once a month.
I was recently offered a product to try called Bloom Grow. It's a slow release granule with a 3-15-15 formula. It's produced in Florida by a company named Bethel Farms. I may expiriment with it on some Neos and Bills starting next March. Just one dose for the whole growing season.

RE: Bringing out best colors and markings in Billbergias (Follow-Up #7)

posted by: naoh123 on 08.10.2014 at 05:37 pm in Bromeliad Forum

I researched light levels for different broms last year and came up with this:

Aechmea: 1500-2300 foot candle
Cryptanthus: 2500-3500 fc
Neoregelia: 2500 fc
Orthophytum: 7000+ fc
Tillandsia Xeric: 4000-7000 fc
Tillandsia Soft: 2000-4000 fc
Billbergia - 3500-5000 fc

I made sure to find more than one source before noting each one, but to be fair it was all just a bunch of googling. Also, bromeliad families are pretty broad so certain species could fall far outside those numbers, its is a very loose guide and I'm sorry to say I didn't cite my sources.

RE: Can u give a Hummer too much sugar?? (Follow-Up #13)

posted by: rita_h on 09.03.2008 at 12:20 pm in Hummingbird Garden Forum

You're fine. Both the 1:3 and 1:4 ratios are within the range of naturally occurring concentrations in flowering plants. Here's some data from the Lousiana Ornithological Society Newsletter, March 2003, written by Dennis Demcheck. The 3rd number is the average percentage. The higher percentage may be preferred by birds but the number of total visits to a feeder may be higher with the lower percentage.

RE: cattleya orchids... (Follow-Up #9)

posted by: johnjsr on 11.11.2009 at 01:27 am in Florida Gardening Forum

Some of the growers I've talked to swear by Neem oil spray for scale and lots of other problems. I've used that from time to time. For a severe scale problem like Boisduval scale a systemic like imidacloprid is usually recommended. My problem with this came as a "gift" attached to a plant I bought from a grower. I lost a lot of plants before I learned how to treat it. I hope you never see that problem.

This might help they are made out of 3/8 rebar from Home Depot. They are easy to bend and I first put them togather with electricl ties and later wired them togather. They are about a 1 1/2 feet in the ground work really good even in high winds.
