I developed an interest in these plants many years back when I found a whole lot of A. galbra flowering in a monsoon forest in the northern floodplain country of the Alligator Rivers Region. I was intrigued to find dozens and dozens of these unusual flowers virtually carpeting the ground.
Thanks Charleen. I've been on a steep learning curve for quite some time now. But it's a fun ride. Hopefully there'll be more flower photos next season. I like looking at other people's photos of the flowers, but there's a real satisfaction when the photos are your own.
That is so true when mine starts growing I will get you some pictures but they don't get as big as those ones you have. Especially the ones that look like little tree. They are Fabulous. You are so welcome. I love visiting you in your world of plants and animals.
It's very dependent on the species, some are quite large, such as A. titanum, A. gigas and several others. They also range down to medium and small. It can also depend on different varieties in the same species. I have what appear to be 2 different varieties of A. paeoniifolius, the large one in the photos with the huge flowers (inflorescence actually) and one a bit smaller with a smaller flower. But the secret to getting the most out of them is to feed them well and try to keep competative roots away from them.
I'll try to remember that. I have a mule and donkeys so the fertilized part shouldn't be too bad/ got some eatting machines there, so plenty of fertilizer. You all are going into fall as we are starting Spring before long. Will be so glad to see it too. so I should have some little Amorphs popping up before too long.Come on Spring and Thank you.
