This Week in the Garden | Winter bloomers can bring holiday cheer - Santa Cruz Sentinel
Some are even fragrant, and many bloom throughout the winter months and are well-adapted to home interiors. If you do select one or more of these plants to take home with you, ask the shop for care sheets since the needs of different species can vary quite a bit. You will have healthier longer-lived orchids if you meet their preferences for temperature range, light exposure, watering and drainage.
Another exotic winter-flowering plant, the so-called zygocactus, comes from the mountains of South and Central America where it grows, like many orchids, in the crotches of trees where debris collects. This tells us that it likes a humus-rich but well-draining soil. There are actually several species from which to choose. Usually blooming first is the Thanksgiving Cactus or Schlumbergera truncate. These blossoming jewels produce complicated flowers in red, pink, magenta or white and the tips of each "leaf" have two or three jagged points. Less common and with flowering usually beginning in December is the Christmas Cactus or S. bridgesii; to identify this species, look for smooth rounded or scalloped edges on the leaves. The two species are often mislabeled but all bloom prolifically if their needs are met. As with poinsettias, flowering is triggered by shortening day-lengths. If you have an old plant that is reluctant to bloom, next year try this: in September, stop feeding and decrease watering to once weekly. In October, move the plant to a cool, dim windowsill, where it should remain until leaf tips sport bright buds. If your plant still refuses to set buds, give it 12-hour nights in a dark closet for three weeks, and only dim light during daytime. During the rest of the year, your zygos will be happy outdoors in a shaded location, and for better growth, and thus more blossoms, keep vigorous growth coming along with every-other-day waterings, and frequent doses of all-purpose plant food. Summer is also the time to pinch off segments to encourage branching. The broken segments can be placed in small pots with good quality potting soil where they will readily root and become new plants. These often flower their very first year.
If you'd prefer a flowering plant that is particularly undemanding, take a look at the several species of bromeliads that are available locally. Also coming from the mountainous tropics where they cling to mossy tree branches, they receive frequent downpours but the moisture quickly drains aw... Dec 14, 2018
Macadamia flourishes in Hawaii, but not native - West Hawaii Today
Some folks on the mainland think macadamia nut trees are native to Hawaii, but here we know it is an Australian tree that we adopted as our own. We use the nut in all kinds of local dishes, especially desserts. We even use the leaves for Christmas decorations instead of holly.
When the first humans arrived in Hawaii, edible nutritional kernals or nuts were hard to find. About the only native nut was the mahoe, or Alectron macrococculus. Polynesian then brought with them the coconut and the kukui nut. Technically, the coconut is not a true nut. Although kukui nut is edible, it can create serious stomach issues when too many are eaten since it is related to the Castor Bean. So in the arena of foods and nutrition, true nuts were lacking.
In the 20th century, University of Hawaii College of Tropical Agriculture researchers literally scoured the tropical world for nut crops that might adapt to some of Hawaii's diverse climates. Many nut bearing species like almonds and cashews were introduced but none... Nov 28, 2018
The Christmas flower - The Hutchinson News
Hutch News featured a Sandra Milburn photographic spread of poinsettias. Poinsettias are the best-selling potted plant in the U.S. and Canada, accounting for more than $250 million in annual sales, mostly in the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Although there are over 100 shades and colors of poinsettias, my personal favorite is still the bright crimson one.That color ties in with one of my favorite legends about poinsettias and their association with Christmas. In 16th century Mexico, a poor peasant girl named Pepita wanted to take a gift to the Christ Child to celebrate his birthday. Having no money, she gathered some weeds from a ditch, fashioned a small bouquet and placed them in front of the crib on Christmas Eve. That evening the scraggly bouquet of weeds burst into brilliant red blooms. All who saw them were convinced they had witnessed a Christmas miracle. In Mexico and Guatemala, poinsettias are referred to Flores de Noche Buena, or Flowers of the Holy Night.Beginning in the 17th century, Franciscan friars in Mexico included poinsettias in their Christmas celebrations. The star-shaped leaf pattern is said to remind people of the Star of Bethlehem, while the red color represents the blood sacrifice of Christ’s crucifixion.Poinsettias might have remained south of the border were it not for the intervention of the first U.S. ambassador to Mexico, Joel Poinsett. Poinsett, a botanist, was so enchanted by the plant he discovered in Mexico that he sent cuttings back to his home in Charleston, South Carolina in 1828. The rest is, as they say, history. Poinsettia is often capitalized because it is named after a person. Joel Poinsett died on Dec. 12, 1851. To honor him, Dec. 12 is now celebrated as National Poinsettia Day.Poinsett was an intriguing personality. Besides being a first-rate botanist, he excelled in politics and diplomacy. He served in the South Carolina legislature and as ... Nov 28, 2018
