    Ping gigantea

    From the album: Savagegardenz

    One of my P. gigantea About 3 years old. I find that they grow in an inorganic mix better than an a mix containing Peat.
  21. A few of my oxalis in flower today.

  22. The more i see Ping flowers , the more i love them.
  23. Nice plant. Mine have just come out of dormancy. But i have nothing as red as this plant.
  24. we have tons of Pine bark here in New Zealand as we export logs over seas, the bark is used for every thing from Mulch on gardens, Orchid Potting media, and Potting mixes. Sorry i have no photos as yet but on the report i will try and get some.
  25. I use bark fines ( the siftings from composted bark we use for our potting mixes) and 1-3 mm pumice, half and half. I get about 3 years out of it. Just use the same mix to sow my seed on ,and get great germination.
