Yay!

I'm very excited because tonight I noticed, what appears to be a bud on one of my brugmansia's that I had propagated from cuttings last year. This will be my first bloom. I have been eagerly waiting for one to bloom, and checking them just about everyday. I just hope that no grasshopper or other jerk ruins it for me. I will post a photo once it opens up.

It's really exciting when you grow something from seed, or a cutting and get to see all the milestones along the way.

BTW I have no idea what type it is, only that the blooms are white, the leaves pretty large and hairy. Especially compared to the Dr. Seuss that I have. The leaves on the Dr. Seuss are thinner, not nearly as hairy, and a lighter shade of green. Confused

Woo hoo, can't wait!

Hurray! it is very exciting when you see your first Brug bloom! I got cuttings about 18 months ago, and the all bloomed within a year. Mine are NOID yellow. I've had troubles with little beetles eating the leaves, and with whiteflies. I love the way the blooms have a nice strong scent at night.

I'll look forward to seeing your bloom pics!

Hi Karen,

Thank you! Yes I've had trouble with both too, as well as little caterpillars in spring and summer. I will post a photo when it blooms. I had some NOID pink brug cuttings too but they died Sad

I've been told that growing Brugs is easy, but they're not easy for me. I cut mine back for winter, and the branches all died back about 5 to 6 inches for some reason. I'm hoping they will perk up and start growing again soon.

Karen, i used to have three NOID one pink, yellow and white they grew very well and almost always flowered such a wonderful smell. But i was always fighting spider mites. and i mean it was like a daily chore. One winter the thermostat in the greenhouse went out and that year I lost 80% of all my plants including the brugs. Never had any luck in growing them from seed out of I don't remember how many I one to grow. Now i have a EZ grow (Home made) that has rooted so many things will try some again. You all have a wonderful day. Karen are the winds just as bad up there as they have been here?

Hi James, yes, the winds have been just awful. It seems like the base is around 20mph and it goes on much higher with the gusts. It makes it hard to do much outside, and very hard to even open up the telescope dome for astro-photography.

Well I don't know if my brugmansia CAN bloom. As the bloom started to get closer to blooming, it started to drop and elongate itself. I realized that my plant is to short for this bloom! Confused If it does open fully it will probably be kissing the ground. Rolling on the floor laughing
Here's a photo


I planted it in the ground so hopefully it will grow fast and be able to support it's blooms. It already has a second bud in the works. Smiling

That bloom will be exciting!!

Karen, don't despair if the roots are staying alive. That's all that can be expected here too, last years' stems are killed by winter & new ones grow.
