Now we have another Minerva bloom, indoors, perhaps the last Amaryllis bloom of the indoor season. I thought that through the past five to blossom.
Minerva. At far left is a last bloom of Apple Blossom and
the remnants of Spartacus.
Minerva is common. Sometimes the most common are the strongest growers, which accounts for why there are so many of them. True of Daffodils also.
There will undoubtedly be some to bloom outdoors through the summer but I brought in the best for growing in pots.
There are 8 seedling Hippeastrums in 4" pots with roots growing out the drainage holes that need bumping up to 6" clay pots as soon as I get more pots. Oh, oh. Where are they going to spend the winter? Perhaps they can be circled around the tomato containers. Actually there are ten; 2 pots have 2 small bulbs each.
I didn't let seed pods form this year, as much fun as it is to see them sprout and grow. I love when the little papery seeds burst the pod. Floating them on a bowl of water and watching tiny roots start downward through the side of a clear bowl is a fun thing. First sprouts after potting up are a thrill. Waiting years for a first blossom, not so much.
