Re: [aroid-l] Amorph Blues Part 2
From: Al Wootten <awootten at nrao.edu> on 2004.08.02 at 13:42:01(11908)|
As usual I was late getting my plants out from winter storage; A.
bulbifer already had 4" growth on it. Although I put it in a shady
spot, someone tidying up the garden moved it into direct sun about early
June. The growth shriveled and fell off. Now there is a strong growth
again, which elongated from an adjacent spot on the corm.
Quoting Neil Gordon :
Sigh, ok last week i decided to put my A. Bulbifer outside, as we
having mice weather, and they produce nice pink edges to the leaf in|
strong(er) light, or so ive read, unfortunately i want out and didnt
return for 2 days, when i came back, the leaf looked like it had been
sun bleached, as its been very sunny here in the UK.
Now, a few days later (as expected) the bleached bits are dying off
my plants looking a little worse for wear. I guess about 30 - 40% of
the leaf is still green and unafected.
Or perhaps it could be due to lower temperatures in the evening?
Can anyone tell me how badly this will affect the plant? I guess it
wont put up a new leaf if this one dies and wont increase the tuber
size this year because of it. Hopefully i havnt done anything
I had also put out the 2 A. Hildebrandtii I also have out next to it,
and they are hardly affected at all, with only slight bleaching
I only realy discovered these plants about a year ago, so I guess im
still a bit green in respect to growing them.
Live and learn i suppose.
