High guys , here's a little know fact about myself: I also dig gardening scratch
Here's a small sample of whats flowering at the moment .
Miltonia/Miltonopsis hybrid( it's an orchid)
Flower power 100_2197
Billbergia .variety ( it's a bromiliad)
Flower power 100_2198
that was a photo of the flower " bract" , the next one is of the true flower
Flower power 100_2199
Achmea .var( another bromiliad)
Flower power 100_2200
same deal with the bract ,the yellow buds are the true flower
Flower power 100_2201
Achmea gamosepala : and one of fav broms
Flower power 100_2202
when the blue flowers die back the parts which hold the seed turn a hot pink/reddish
(officially called cerise I think) for a further few months and another cool
thing about this plant is the pollen and reproductive parts are true blue as opposed
to yellow like most plants
Flower power 100_2203
Its pretty early on in the season here ,so I should be able to get a lengthy thread
out of this one+ what you are looking at is flowering now, not old foto's - care of
something or some one





scratch wiping 6 folders with all the plant pics.

A bit of an update:
Here's gamosepala a few weeks on and starting to change colour, wait until
you see it in a few more weeks
Flower power 100_2278
Achmea var? this first pic was taken before the flowers started to push through
Flower power 100_2260
And a few weeks later, you can notice the bract changing colour and the flowers coming,
a kool combo I think ,the red with the smokey grey petals with the blue tips
Flower power 100_2276
Flower power 100_2277
And another orchid: Prosthechea cochleata
Flower power 100_2274

Very nice Achmea gamosepala, I've seen some of those at the Botanical Garden down here in FL, and they don't look half so nice. :flower:
I wish I could grow orchids, but it seem the only plants that will grow for me are herbs.

Cheers for the replies guys , it's slowed of a little in the garden at he moment +
the camera is on the Mad . But - Achmea gamosepala hasn't done its thing yet and
there is a lot of early Cybidium variaties with some nice big buds on them , so hopefully
get the newer camera (also a kickdonkey version for better fish pix).
Any one else feel free to add their contributions of interesting flower foto's.
Cheers J

I thought I'd throw in a few more shots while I had the loan camera
Achmea gamosepala: not colouring so well , so I have moved him into a bit
more sunshine
Flower power DSCN0813
We've got lots of these guys coming into spike , but this guy flowered well early
Cymbidium var?
Flower power DSCN0811
All though these aren't in flower it will give some one the google what the flower looks like
Pterastylis Curta: this is an OZZIE native , if you were out in the bush you'd probably step on it
Flower power DSCN0813
Denrobium Tetragonam: a cool thing about this plant is that the bulbs have four sides making it a
square instead of round like most orchids, this is how you tell wether you have a tetragonum hybrid
Flower power DSCN0818
And these guys , another one of my favourite plant families
Tillandsia
Flower power DSCN0815
Flower power DSCN0816
These guys are in the family as bromiliads .
Quiz time : who can tell me the worlds most recognizable bromiliad. Answer next post.
cheers J

Shocked really good answer violetmoss, but not the one I was thinking of .
Spanish moss , aka Tillandsia usneoides
Flower power Tius_001_shp
I try to grow this air plant - but last summer just hammered it so I will try again
now there is a good base of dead stuff grow on.
Hint on the answer : think edible.
cheers J

Well it's the middle of winter here in OZ so the garden has slowed a little + having no camera doesn't help.
Whats the worlds most recognizable bromiliad? This guy.
Flower power Pineapple
How he looks on the plant
Flower power Papple2
And there is more than one variety - some pretty damn fancy
Flower power Papple4

I was trying to find the supercool version that is a wild purple-blue but google let me down, so here's the pink one again
Flower power Images
All images care of google , it's just way to cold to grow Ananus comosus down here in Adelaide.
Flower power Papple3
cheers J

Time to bore you with a few more pix:
Cymbidium variety?
Flower power DSCN0879
Flower power DSCN0880
A different Cymbid variety - there are just so many hybrids of Cymbidiums
it's hard to remember the names of all( and it doesn't help when young cousins
come over and pull all the name tags out)
Flower power DSCN0882
Some Cymbids coming into bud
Flower power DSCN0883
And this is a "SPECIES" Cym - it hasn't been crossed with anything else and is used in the trade as a base green for many other hybrids
Flower power DSCN0884
And finally Achmea Gamosepala is starting to turn colour
Flower power DSCN0885
cheers J

Thanx for the input "Angi and Curby"
Here's a few more just for you guys.
These are all native OZ "epiphytic" dendrobiums( epiphytic-grows on a host but not parasitic)
Den .Tetragonum,(remember the plant with the square bulbs) this pic was taken with an off its guts SLR with a huge telescopic lense
Flower power IMGP8013
and this was with a 10.1 pixel olympus point and shoot
Flower power P9130506
Den. Speciosum
Flower power P9130543
Flower power P9130542
Den. Gracillicaulle, these blooms are smaller than a five cent piece
Flower power P9130515
Den. Kestervenii- you will not be able to find this plant in shops , from memory when I brought it at a show it had a protected species tag on it
Flower power P9130533
Den. Kingianum hybrid
Flower power IMGP7917
Flower power P9130545
As you can see Dendrob blooms don't get so huge
Flower power P9130546
And this guy is Dockrillia Teretifolia or pencil orchid for a common name
Flower power P9130513
and the back of the flower
Flower power P9130514
A trippy fact about Dockrillia is the flowers will always come out upside down.
cheers J

Very nice plants, i used to grow "Platanilla" when i lived back in my home country Colombia, i had them in my Father's farm (they might still be there). since back then i couldn't afford a cam, so there is no pics from my plants, here is the link so you can look at some of the ones i had.
