ooooooooooh - very nice pictures of very pretty flowers, Claire!  -

I wish my cannas looked as full as yours -
the Japanese Beetles are doing a job on them this year!  -

Pretty pix, Claire. Sure glad some of your plants survived. I have that same Canna and love it although mine aren't blooming yet.

David ~ thanks for asking, my "exotica" bulbs did survive, they have been in the green stage for a few weeks now with no flowers. I hope they eventually do something [Smile]

Mine too,they are about 1' tall now with no flowers either. Being that I've never seen them in bloom, I dont know when they will. I had to ask as I found this web site based on a search for "exotica bulbs" and found your post.

Did you get your from Direct Gardening? Thats where mine came from. I have not had good luck with their stuff, and they don't provide very good directions for care!
Anyways, let me know when you see blooms!

Yes I did get mine from DG and had no idea either on how to plant them, thats why I went in search of and found your post. I have not had much luck with their stuff either, but I found out after I had placed 2 different orders from them that this type of gardening is too hard for a newbie like myself, getting plants that wont grow. I had 2 sets of exotica bulbs, 1 that I planted and the other I was holding on to if the bulbs grew like their plants do [Smile] They seem to be holding their own, being I potted them in straight Miracle Grow soil. I was going to offer you my other ones if yours didn't make it. They seem to be quite hardy if I haven't killed them yet! I guess I'll hold on to them unless one of us needs them before the other. I'll let you know when mine blooms and post pics when I learn how. Keep me posted if yours bloom 1st.

David

I don't believe it, but my Exotica' are just now starting to bloom! They seem to take forever. I'll try to post a pic if I can figure out how.

Claire, I love those pictures and find it so hard to believe that you're still talking "flowers". Where I live it's cold and bare now.

Thanks for adding your pictures, love to see them.

For this "New Year" help me to be kinder and more loving to all around me, I pray.
by eClaire on November 15, 2006 05:50 AM
David - mine bloomed too...they are actually beautiful! They last for a long time as cut flowers as well.

And thanks Rosepetal - that post was from a while ago, but those plants are still blooming [Smile]
