They were given as gifts. I always kept them well watered. After the leafs drop it slowly dies off.

How long after you get them, do they die off?


Do you keep them in an actual window...or just on the coffee table?

What method are you using Barefootsucculents, to germinate your avocado seeds?

When I did have them I kept it on a plant stand, not near a window.

If you keep it directly in the window instead Lig, it'll grow new shoots and you can take a cutting and discard the mother plant. Then you'll have a miniature version of the larger plant.

Thought you guys might like to watch as they turn, with me. Here they both are tonight. You can see the fat swelling buds....






Love that my red and white variety is now showing a couple splotches of white now too...





It's really cool seeing them like this, after a year. I almost forgot how they looked.

Is it true that Poinsettia's need a certain length of time with darkness, may have it backwards? Something I had heard along time ago.

Yes RC...that's exactly what I mentioned throughout this thread...how I have given my cutlings extra long dark periods, to induce flowering. 12 hours of darkness each day or more, works best.



Once the color and buds appear however, the long dark periods are no longer necessary.


I'm getting very excited as my poinsettias are showing more and more color everyday now. I'll show them again soon and shock you guys with the intense color.
