And a very late bloom from my Rebutia muscula, glad it still pushed it out while indoors, so thankful for that south facing window! Big Grin

I keep forgetting to take pics. I have a giant Stapliad blooming and some orchids. Maybe I'll remember to take the camera out tomorrow, that is if it stops raining!!! It's a miracle - rain on the central coast at last.

I thought the "Mother of Thousands" seldom give flowers especially growing in pot inside? But this one of mine just show some strange "buds" (?) on its top. Can I expect some flowers? or just some more babies?

Hello Fiat, I think those would be buds, the babies grow along the edge of the leaves. Aren't you glad to have indoor bloomers? Smiling

Thanks, Tarev. Of courseeee, just not sure if they are buds. Now if they are, will they turn 'colorful' flowers, e.g., red, brown, pink... but not green? Can't wait to see the bloom!

Yup, it is just green while in bud..then it becomes into a peach/orangey color or is it the pink one..sorry not sure which color it will make my similar kalanchoe has not bloomed for me..it just makes babies which I often find here and there Big Grin It will enjoy a bit more sun now that it is in blooming mode. And I prefer that it will not make blooms.

Hope you can position it by your sunniest window. Enjoy the bloom show formation, as I understand it, kalanchoes are monocarpic, meaning it is at the end of that plants life. But hopefully it will make many babies first before it goes.

Oh, how sad! Now I am no longer so strongly anticipating the only and last bloom show of the Mother of Thousands... Yeah, it's one nature of life any way. May be a way of celebrating life's death and birth again. Thank you for the info, Tarev.

Surprise! It seems that the Pineapple Guava fruits could turn dark pink-reddish color if receive sunlight a bit...

Hoya carnosa 'Krimson Queen' has opened up all of the buds:

Have to move this inside our growcamp , grabbed the entire cube grid, since it has rambled all around it, and put it inside there, with our temps going down to the high 30F overnight.
