Wanting to "flower" today, high up in the 25 ft tree,

Did you climb to the top, Rick?

Rick, is it possible for you to send me a twig or two from T. koraiensis? (All I want for Christmas is a twig or two... ;D ;D ;D)

The advantage of a 10x optical zoom on my little point and shoot camera...

I'll pm you, Trond, regarding the Thuja cuttings.

I've got 2 N. sarniensis bulbs in pots that bloomed last year, they were outside in part shade all summer and are now still dormant inside. Any tips on getting them to rebloom? I've been watering them every week or so, but still no sign of growth. :-\

I never start watering till they send up a scape, usually after a dry and warm summer rest.

This one has one has still one flowering scape. It has been in flower or months. (It is only one pot)

It depends on how you treated the Nerine the year before

Most Nerines make the flower-but one year before
this means what you did wrong last year
can result in no flowers this year

OK, I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best.

It had leaves on it through most of the summer, so I kept watering it! Doh!! :P I'll know better now.
Thanks to you both for the advice!!

Amy, my plant starts producing leaves in winter/spring and the leaves die down in summer when the weather gets warmer. I stand the pot in a place where it is warm and dry all summer. In fall, about August-September almost all the bulbs in the pot produce scapes but no leaves. I water a little but not much till the leaves start developing later in winter.

A couple of cyclamen.

The Cyclamen alpinum is on time but I would have expected the Cyclamen pseudibericum in about three months
