Outside my window. Golf anyone???? I live on a golf course.


Phrag Bel Croute. 4th-5th-6th flowers on 2 stems. It has been in bloom since early Nov. and stands 57" tall. I'm sure it will get taller as the other top buds start to mature and open. I can still see 4 buds ready to open, and still more tiny ones. The flowers stay nice for about 2 weeks if it is kept where it is a bit cool.

I grow it under HPS lights, S/H method, in my basement. It does take a lot of space so I think, when it is finished blooming, I am going to try supporting some of the long leaves with narrow panty hose strips. They get so long they fold and leave a mark. Has anyone tried this?

SUPER - great job!
The midwest will be living up to it's reputation, wait a few days & the weather will change! They say the 40-50 degree temps expected this weekend will wipe out the snow!
PS. I forgot to mention it was 2 degrees when I got up this morning! The daytime high is suppose to be 11!
