    a couple of pings still in flower...

    Some of my pings are still putting on a show up here in the North West....its a competition between my agnata and esseriana lol, both are on about their 7th flower in the past 3 months or so...my xTitan only produced one flower....but here are a couple pics of the agnata and esseriana flowers that are going right now, each one has another flower developing...

    Very nice. I am the opposite... I can't get my agnata to flower for the life of me, but my Titan sent up 4 within about a month.

    I really like the color on your agnata.

    Well I've HEARD that cooler nights may help induce flowering. I wonder if that could be the case with yours? I see you're in Washington, so you definitely get more of a temperature drop at night than I do in San Antonio, Texas. Mine are indoors under lights, so the temperature is more constant.

    And I can't get either of the afore-mentioned plants to flower. Regardless of cold nights my Aphrodites, gypsicola, and moranensis huautla x ehelresiae are the only ones inclined to flower. I have no idea why.

    So this morning I just noticed that with 2 flowers already opened... my P. Titan is now sending up yet another one. That makes 5 flowers in 1 month I think it is stuck in bloom mode.

    My agnatas have not bloomed this year, My moranensis starts developing a flower bud then aborts. Not sure why yet.....
