I agree with Mike and Cyra,

Hilarious! Annette, I've been very lax in giving them food this growing season, I got spoiled with my blooms last year from my other larger plummies they were football sizes.

Gigi, what do you feed your plumies?

I have to admit, I have been terrible about fertilizing this summer. The guilt set in today, after viewing your lovely blooms. I repotted 10 plants, and I gave them some granular food, and a dose of Azomite, (a new producut for me) that I am trying in my garden this year. We been having rain for the past 3 days, which should keep the plants well watered, and help them absorb the fertilizer. The neglected brugs also got fertilized, and I hope these plants all forgive me an show me some nice blooms before our cold weather gets here.

Annette I use the super bloom...water soluble fertilizer works great on my plummies. But I give it less amount than the regular dosage. I used to have continuous bloom when I could feed "weakly" (for the dosage) but weekly. I'm too busy now I haven't fed my plummies in months.

I'll have to use the super bloom more often. I tend to use MG. Thanks for the info about the weekly weakly, I'll have to try it. I just gave them some granular bloom booster on Sunday, with a lot of rain since then.

Gigi,
I've seen several different "Super Blooms" on the market. Which do you prefer?

My J23 finally bloomed. (My first blooms)., I bought this discounted at BBB last year. It was 2-tip very tall, thin and lanky but with fully developed root system. When I planted it into a 3 gallon pot it grew even taller and beefier, so I decided to cut it up into 3 pieces late last year. The middle part rooted and gave me 2 branches but did not bloom yet, the 2-tip top part is growing healthy but did not bloom yet. What is surprising to me is the bottom part gave me 2 branches and the first to bloom. I think it is all about, which part of the plummie has fully developed root system that can initiate the first bloom.


Nevertheless, I was not disappointed, bloom sizes are about 4 and they are drop dead gorgeous and fragrant (not quite sure how to describe the fragrance).

Gigi, you are so right! The J23 blooms are just gorgeous! You are fortunate to have a bloom so quickly, after cutting up the plant.

Amazing blooms Lovey dubby

Mike, stay away from the BBB website, it's addictive. I thought I was going there just to look, 6 new plants later..... He sends beautifully rooted plants.
