Just bloomed after almost 9 months. these onions like to divide instead of spending energy to bloom.

Nope, i think the plants got the vibes. I did some spring cleaning and reduced a few of them into onion state. they decided that it's better to bloom before the owner target them :P/>

Interestingly after replanting these bulbs, they bloomed without growing leaves. Compared to the left corner, the daylily is still dividing like crazy after the pot has bloomed.

Just discovered i got a thorn apple after the datura finished blooming. Wonder will it grow any bigger or can i pluck it directly for harvesting the seeds (PS : they are not edible)

After adding white and pink, i have another confused one : :hysterical:/>/> Joking lah, it's another daylily.

The below one is for sthh :
- yellow tuberose from Taiwan taking a bit of shelter from the neighbouring hibiscus
- very neat growing habit (maybe only one bublb to share with others bulbs)
- very nice smell at night but sadly flowers can only last about 1-2 days before it gets withered by the heat.

Beautiful. How long did the tuberose take to finally bloom? Remember to bring it indoor when it flowers, and let your family enjoy the perfume.
Maybe it's the tuberose blooming season, I saw the tuberose in world farm blooming again few days ago. These were not sold for a long time, so they just bloom when time is right. http://i498.photobucket.com/albums/rr346/trelch/IMG_20160629_113520_zpsbw4xcnhy.jpg

My rainlily from taiwan only gives me white flowers. Hmmmm.. I think kena con.

Would you be interested in growing some very very very slow growing cactus from seeds? I am thinking of getting some ariocarpus seeds online.

Tuberose is in a big pot with malayan ginger lily at the moment, so it's too big to go indoor. but the smell is quite enchanting.
took me about four months though, after my previous taiwan trip in March to get it to flower. Good species because it's not preoccupied with multiplying.
As for the rainlily, I got yellow and pink ones as well. yellow ones worst of the lot, they hardly last for a day although it bloomed.

I'm about to contact you soon, my friend from overseas are interested to pass me some rare cactus seeds but similarly extremely slow growing :P/>

Very very very slow growing means we will see about few cm of the cactus when we are very old leh.

Aiyoh, aztekium are the worst. They are so very very very very slow growing, they grow 1 cm in a few years. Ariocarpus are much faster compared to those. Growth rate is 1mm a year.

Check out this link for growth rate of aztekium.

Hahaha i'm so going to 'kill' my friend... let me reconsider again. I may have some issues in overwatering the plants at times. Seed growing is always a challenge :P/>
