Took some snaps just now and the photos came out nicely, using my old mobile(cell) phone.

These 3 shots are from the same plant, being the one with the largest heads, pretty colours on them =]

These 4 are over shots of all my plants, I figure they are going dormant, or dying, lol.


And finally.... The plant that was flowering a few months back is flowering again

Left arrow is where old flower stalk was growing
Right arrow is new.

All plants are under the same conditions, they have been outside for a solid 2-3 months and yet this is the only plant that wasnts to flower... Ideas?

I've had a plant send up a flower stalk in October before too. Other people on CPUK have seen this happen as well:

I guess it's not uncommon, but it doesn't happen all that often.

I had a plant send up a stalk while sitting in my vegetable drawer last February. My best guess is that being plants, they don't have the ability to read these forums, so they don't know what they're supposed to be doing.

February isn't that unusual of a time for a plant to send up a stalk. But if it's in the veggie drawer, that's quite peculiar!
