Adenium hybrid (single flower), Desert Rose, Impala Lily, Adenium hybrids

Click to see full-size image Adenium hybrid (single flower)
Family: Apocynaceae
Desert Rose, Impala Lily, Adenium hybrids
Origin: Arabia and East Africa
CaudexLarge shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunModerate waterDry conditionsPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersUnusual colorRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowersIrritating

Exotic species of Adenium: Adenium swazicum, Adenium somalense, Adenium arabicum, Adenium boehmianum, Adenium multiflorum, Adenium crispum, Adenium obesum. Adeniums have many spectacular hybrids. The basic culture is very similar to orchids. A small pot with excellent drainage is a must. Adeniums do not like both over-watering or drying-out. There is a little secret of how to create a weird shape of the base: lift the plant a bit every time you re-pot the plant, so that the upper part of roots will be a little exposed. The plant will form more roots that will go down. To make your plant develop a large swollen base/trunk, you'll need a good quality fertilizer. Fetilizer requirement for swelling up trunks is also used to increase flowering. It shouldnt be too hight in nitrogen, the middle number should be the highest. Never apply fertilizer directly on roots and do not liquid feed when a plant is thirsty: always water first slightly to avoid root burn and leaf drop. Do not wet leaves. Adeniums need lots of light for heavy flowering. Most hybrids and species start blooming in the spring when the conditions are warm and days get longer, and continue blooming through the fall and winter in warmer climates. Adeniums like a neutral to hard water. Acidic water tends to sour the soil too fast and may cause root rot. Water plants preferably in the early morning, and allow them to drink up throughout the day. Watering can be done daily to every few days. Never allow your plants to sit in a saucer of water, but don't let them to dry out too often - this causes adeniums to go into early dormancy.

What is grafted plant

Q: What is a grafted plant?

A: Grafting is a method of vegetative (or asexual) propagation where a piece of one plant (scion) selected for its flowers or fruit and containing the desired genes to be duplicated is inserted into a piece of another plant (rootstock), with a strong vigorous root system, usually a seedling.

Benefits of the graft:

  • - making a clone of the parent plant ensures the same cultivar, since most fruit trees will not come true to seed
  • - taking a scion from a mature plant reduces time to flowering and fruiting (from 10-12 years for a seedling to 2-3 years or less for a grafted plant)
  • - introducing dwarfing, hardiness, disease and pest resistance.
  • - easier propagation method when other means like cutting or seed is not successful

Alpinia purpurata, Red Ginger Lily, Ostrich Plume, Red Cone Ginger

Click to see full-size image Alpinia purpurata
Family: Zingiberaceae
Red Ginger Lily, Ostrich Plume, Red Cone Ginger
Origin: Malay Peninsula
Small shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersRed/crimson/vinous flowers

Extremely tropical looking, one of the most desirable symbols of Tropics, Alpinia purpurata, red ginger, also called ostrich plume and pink cone ginger, are native Malaysian plants with showy flowers on long brightly colored red bracts. They look like the bloom, but the true flower is the small white flower on top. Red Ginger grows in Hawaii, and many Central American nations, including Belize. It is also found in Samoa, where it is the national flower, and is locally called "teuila." It prefers partial shade and moist humid conditions, although it can tolerate full sun in some climates. It tends to like to be well watered and not left to dry out. Ginger can also be grown as a houseplant and its cut flowers can be used in arrangements. Likes a slightly acid soil. Every other year trim to ground to prevent legginess. Blooms from spring to summer if there is enough humidity.

Amorphophallus sp., Voodoo lily, Devils tongue, Snake Palm, Corpse flower, Elephant Foot Yam

Click to see full-size image
Amorphophallus symonianus
 Amorphophallus sp.
Family: Araceae
Voodoo lily, Devils tongue, Snake Palm, Corpse flower, Elephant Foot Yam
Origin: Himalaya, India, Burma
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersUnusual colorOrnamental foliageRed/crimson/vinous flowersSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Amorphophallus species are herbs with an underground storage organ. This is usually a tuber. One single leaf emerges from the tuber, consisting of a vertical petiole (stalk) and a horizontal leaf-blade. The latter is dissected into few or numerous small leaflets. Once plants are mature an inflorescence may develop. The inflorescence may replace the leaf in one season, or develop alongside it. From winter dormant tubers emerge an umbrella like plant with beautiful speckled stems. Large flowers will emerge from mature plants in the spring. When the spathe opens the female flowers are receptive and must be pollinated that same day. The opening inflorescence emits an attractant scent. In Amorphophallus this scent has diversified considerably. In most species the scent is anything but pleasant, and reminds one of varieties of death, decay, sewage, gas and the like. A few species develop a scent that is actually pleasant to the human nose (e.g. carrot-like, anise, chocolate, fruity, lemon). After successful pollination most parts of the spathe wither and drop off, after which the individual female flowers develop into berries, containing the seeds. These berries are usually red or orange-red, but occasionally blue, white, or yellow-and- white. Amorphophallus thrives in a rich loamy soil in partial shade. Compost should consist of 2 parts loam to 1 part peat moss to 1 part sand. Keep the plant evenly moist all through the growing season. Keep dry during dormancy, keep moist during growing period. Fertilize monthly with a houseplant fertilizer. Water should be gradually withheld starting in October until the leaf withers. Store corms at a temperature above 50 degrees. They can be brought into active growth in late March. If the corms are strong enough, a blossom will soon be produced. The leaf follows soon afterwards. A. bulbifer definitely dislikes low humidity - the leaflets may partially desiccate; this seems to be more pronounced in low light. Also, in low light, the leafes become exceptionally dark green, with nicely contrasting pink margins. Such plants have to be moved to brighter light very gradually. In bright light, the leaves are bright green, with pinkish margins less pronounced. Other species: konjac, titanum, and much more...

Amorphophallus konjac is one of the largest flowers, a perennial exotic Asian plant. It grows a single, elongated center called a corm and a single large leaf that wraps around it. The corm is the part of the plant that is used, as well as its tuber, which is commonly called the konnyaku potato. Amorphophallus konjac acts as a diet aid that has many benefits. Its ability to swell when mixed with water allows it to fill the stomach. It also moves through the digestive system very slowly, making the appetite feel satisfied for a longer period of time. This characteristic of Amorphophallus konjac is beneficial in treating obesity. It is one of the most exotic, bizarre flowers. Can be easily grown in a pot as a house plant. The single leaf dormant in winter, then in spring the plant shoots out a fantastic flower.

Amorphophallus bulbifer - Voodoo lily

Click to see full-size image

Voodoo lily, Devils tongue, Snake Palm, Corpse flower. Amorphophallus bulbifer is one of the prettiest of the Voodoo Lilies and the inflorescence doesn't smell that bad compared to others of the genus. Amorphophallus only blooms when mature and even so it doesn't bloom every year. The unpleasant smell that the flower omits is only present for a few hours after the flower opens. If the flower is pollinated (normally by flies if the plant is outside) it will take 1 year for the plant to mature its seeds. The seed stalk is very pretty with the seeds changing colors from green to red. During this time the tuber will not produce a leaf.

Arisaema tortuosum, Arum tortuosum, Whipcord Cobra Lily, Jack in the pulpit

Click to see full-size image Arisaema tortuosum, Arum tortuosum
Family: Araceae
Whipcord Cobra Lily, Jack in the pulpit
Origin: E. Asia
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterUnusual colorIrritatingDeciduousEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Arisaemas resemble carnivorous plants, but in fact they attract flies and other insects as pollinators, not food. Their leaves are divided into three or more leaflets. Their fascinating "flower" a pulpit-like hooded spathe enclosing a fleshy, erect spadix usually rises in spring. Scarlet berries by late summer or autumn enclose seeds that are scattered by birds and other creatures.

They prefer a rich but well drained neutral to acid soil that does not dry out in the growing season.

The plant contains calcium oxylate crystals. These cause an extremely unpleasant sensation similar to needles being stuck into the mouth and tongue if they are eaten but they are easily neutralized by thoroughly drying or cooking the plant or by steeping it in water. Tuber - it must be thoroughly dried or cooked before being eaten. The roots are buried in masses in pits until acetous fermentation takes place, they are then dug up, washed and cooked, by which means their acrimonious principles are in part dispersed.

Beaumontia grandiflora, Echites grandiflora, Easter Lily Vine, Heralds Trumpet, Nepal Trumpet Flower

Click to see full-size image Beaumontia grandiflora, Echites grandiflora
Family: Apocynaceae
Easter Lily Vine, Heralds Trumpet, Nepal Trumpet Flower
Origin: Himilayan tropics
Vine or creeperFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

One of the most impressive climbing plants which also grows well in subtropical climates. A vigorous evergreen climber that can reach over 20 ft tall and as wide if a strong support is available. Very large leaves can reach 9 inches long and are a glossy green color with prominent veins and new growth has attractive brownish hairs. In late spring to early fall appear the terminal clusters of large (3-6 inch long by 4 inches wide) fragrant white flowers that are trumpet-shaped and resemble an Easter Lily.

Plant in full sun or light shade preferably in a rich soil and provide ample water. It is hardy to 28 degrees F and in cold years can be semi-deciduous. It dislikes heavy wet soil in winter. If pruning is required, as it often is because this plant can get rather large, do so just after flowering to promote new flowering wood for the following year.

Another very close species with slightly smaller leaves - Beaumontia murtonii.

Canna Lily. Perennial growing up to 6-7 ft, with long narrow leaves and showy flowers. Tolerates flooding, grows well along waterline.

Cannas should be planted where they will have a visual impact at the height of summer. Most cannas are tall and need to be placed at the back of a bed. In their native habitat, Canna grows in shaded locations. However, for profuse flowering Cannas need full sun. The more sun, the better. Canna lilies will survive in a shady site, but they will not grow as profusely.

Like bananas, Canna lilies are heavy feeders. Provide plenty of compost and/or good liquid fertilizer to keep the plants looking their best. Without adequate fertility or moisture, Cannas look quite ugly. If your Canna lily plant looks ratty during the summer, that's a sure sign that an extra food is required.

If you're growing plants in containers, keep in mind that Canna lilies are large plants and therefore need a large container. The plants will lose vigor as they become pot-bound. When that happens, lift the root-ball, divide the canna bulbs (rhizomes) and replant. Container-grown Canna lilies will need watering once or even twice a day if grown outside, and it may help to stand the pot in a saucer of water. Provide regular fertilizer at full rate according to the instructions on the label.

Clivia miniata, Bush Lily, Boslelie

Clivia miniata is a clump forming perennial with dark green, strap shaped leaves which arise from a fleshy underground stem. The flowering heads of brilliant orange (rarely yellow), trumpet shaped flowers appear mainly in spring but also sporadically at other times of the year. The deep green shiny leaves are a perfect foil for the masses of orange flowers. Clivia are endemic to southern Africa, meaning that they do not occur naturally anywhere else in the world! The bush lily grows in dappled shade, often in large colonies. The soil is well drained and humus rich. Occasionally they may be found growing in the fork of a tree. Sadly in many areas colonies of wild bush lilies have been destroyed by harvesting for traditional medicine and also by plant collectors. Clivia miniata is easily cultivated and very rewarding. It should be planted in dappled shade, (they are sensitive to sunlight and will burn easily). The plants should be watered regularly during the summer months which is their growing season. The bush lily is frost tender and may be damaged if in a position that is exposed, to cold winds especially. It takes a long time for the damage to grow out if this happens, so it is best to select a sheltered site. The rhizomes are reportedly extremely toxic but are used medicinally for various purposes. The name meaning: Clivia - after the Duchess of Northumberland, Lady Charlotte Clive who first cultivated and flowered the type specimen in England; miniata - color of red lead - referring to the flowers.

Crinum asiaticum, Swamp lily, River lily, Spider lily

Click to see full-size image
Variegated form
 Crinum asiaticum
Family: Amaryllidaceae
Swamp lily, River lily, Spider lily
Origin: Australia, tropical Asia, South Africa
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

C. asiaticum can grow into pretty large size. The dark leaves can be 3 foot long and extend upwards from the central stem. A single plant can reach 5 foot tall, which the flowers being held even higher. In time the plants make large clumps of enormous bulbs. The bulb itself is unusual because there is not much to it. From the basal plate the stout leaves make a pseudostem that can reach a foot or more above ground, but this pseudostem is not a bulb.

Variegated forms of C. asiaticum are attractive, especially in winter when their leaves can brighten up your garden. The species can happily bloom year round if protected from cold. If grown in a pot, C. asiaticum does best in a large container, perhaps 20 inches in diameter and 20 inches tall (large plants can fill out an even larger vessel). C. asiaticum can bloom year round if it has good light, adequate water, and is not too cold.

Outdoors, in USDA climate zone 9b C. asiaticum freezes to the ground at about 25 F and can even start growing again during warm periods. In spring when nighttime temperatures stay above 60 F, the plants start to grow rapidly if they have water, and they will bloom in early summer. They keep blooming until November-December.
