Some more snaps and queries

by Cougar » Sun Oct 18, 2009 11:31 am

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?

Great photos Cougar! Your plants look very, very healthy. Nice growing!

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.

Interesting, I'm curious to how long it would last if I didn't cut it.... I'll be cutting it later anyway.

Thanks for the links guys. Bed time for the VFTs.

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!

Thanks! Had a steady hand, and I think there was the perfect amount of light, most of the shots are clear. :)
