The forum uses some sort of object detection to label images you upload. It's just a list of things it thinks are in the picture. So a houseplant, and a chair. It's not done manually by any user. It does this to all images including your own if you click on them. Kinda neat, although doesn't always work out perfectly!There's a strandkorb in one of your snapshots which the photo credit refers to as a "houseplant chair".
The muscle and "reach" of your Tiger Lotuses is amazing!I took a shot at digging up that suspected new red tiger lotus in my apisto breeder tank and lo, it is not growing from the hardy lily next to it, but was indeed growing from a runner attached to the lotus clear on the other side of a plastic divider:
Another neat thing is that it apparently is growing another bulb! I replanted it on the far side of the tank so that sometime soon I will have balancing lotuses on each side of the breeder tank.
My dream is to grow American lotus. So many attempts have failed!!! I think flooding and allelochemicals. It even grows wild here in my county, Palm Beach County! 😭 I hope to succeed soon, I’m learning so much.I have two seedlings of the native Nelumbo lutea that are growing big enough to go into a friend's large pond. They are tricky, wish me luck.
But that’s what I keep hearing! The temp MUST be high for lotus! It’s so delicate. I’ve grown it better on the banks of a pond but the moment the water had risen it died! I’m going to try to grow American lotus in a big oversized pot on my patio.Mine didn't make it. I think the water temperature was too high. We had a terrible summer here.
