'Pink Giant' Imposter

April 22, 2017: Potted up
September 30, 2017 - October 11, 2017: Plant emerged

Cymbidium 'Sunshine'

Orchids
NOIDs

Image Lilium 'Fashion' Imposter
Have
Lilium I
NOIDs

September 22, 2017: Plant emerged

Image Lilium 'Pearl Jessica' Imposter
Have
Lilium I
NOIDs
Asiatic (c/c) cultivar. Doesn't match the true 'Pearl Jessica', but is likely another known cultivar that was sold into Australia. Ploidy is unknown. I am suspicious that it may be what is sold in Australia as 'Pink Flavour', but need to obtain this cultivar to check. August 16, 2016: Obtained plant (Purchased as 'Pearl Jessica' from Bunnings. Bloomin' Bulbs was the supplier.)
August 16, 2016: Potted up
September 11, 2016: Plant emerged
November 25, 2016 - December 1, 2016: Bloomed (Two blooms on a short stem.)
March 5, 2017 - March 30, 2017: Entered Dormancy
September 28, 2017: Plant emerged
December 6, 2017 - December 14, 2017: Bloomed (Two blooms on a short stem. Pretty much the same as last year.)
Lilium 'Pink Giant' Imposter
Have
Lilium I
NOIDs
Waiting on blooms to confirm aspect, as supplier's photo isn't clear. July 8, 2016: Obtained plant (Purchased from Golden Ray Gardens as 'Pink Giant', but knew the ID was wrong before purchasing.)
July 8, 2016: Potted up
September 16, 2016: Plant emerged (Two stems from a double-nosed bulb.)
April 25, 2017: Plant Ended (Removed, Died, Discarded, etc) (Found that the bulb was completely gone. The stems had died back somewhat earlier than the others, so I suspect it is more susceptible to moisture.)
July 17, 2017: Obtained plant (Purchased again from Golden Ray Gardens - giving it one more chance.)
July 18, 2017: Potted up
October 6, 2017: Plant emerged
