    I'm still not sure what causes my guehoi to vine like this, rather than grow as a bush...

    But they're flowering again, so don't care too much :P

    And as of today, B. gigantea has joined them! No photos yet, but they'll come...

    B. gigantea awakens...
    B. gigantea by Hawken Carlton, on Flickr
    filifolia "Hidden Valley" reigns king of the long leaves at the moment. Betting "Pago Giant" will take over when it reaches similar height, and the perennials even more when they mature

    And rorida has bloomed! I sit here wondering why "Taylor's Lagoon" is so problem-lacking for me though, when I've tried the "Lake Campion" form 3 times and only ever got as far as one sickly flower once; even the current plants still only consist of one possibly healthy plant and one that I doubt will survive...seeds thereby will not be possible without finding pollen for that one if so.

    The back of the flower has a yellowish tint

    And both surfaces of the petals themselves are glandular

    Lastly, B. lamellata x gigantea starting to show the growth form the perennials are more known for. Very different looking even at such a young stage.

    "Pago Giant" is the new reigning king of rainbow plant leaf length

    And the perennial hybrid is doing quite well too. My one gigantea is a slowpoke though, and I still need to get another started...

    The first filifolia blooms...

    The flower produced no pollen, but I did pollinate it with B. aquatica "robust" (similarly, I've made the two-way aquatica x rorida "Taylor's Lagoon" and reverse as well as rorida x guehoi), and hoping for decent seeds of such and offspring to follow.

    Do you use different soil media for the different species or do you use the same for all? I am playing with both lfs and sandy peat for B. liniflora and gigantea.

    Primarily sandy peat mix for all, heavier on sand for the hybrids (though they're not doing well currently, and I may be moving them to a less humid location as I think that's the cause). I generally place a little LFS on the surface of the annual pots to ward off fungus when germinating, but currently I'm thinking it's had some detrimental effects on a few (save liniflora, which doesn't care what it's in).
