That is looking good.you can move it to a larger pot.you don't have to go to a much deeper pot.one of mines in a 3 gallon pot the other in a 12 or 14 inch clay pot.One of mine I didn't cut back on at all...and where the bloosoms we're on top it formed a babay plant there and the babay just finished blooming last month like the 21-26 time frame.was weird,but neat.some of the branches have babies formng in them along the stem and they have roots.........

plus I got babies showing up in the plants around them in a 6 ft radious.some babies are 6 inches tall.I got babies on end of leaves...with roots some which stand 1//4 in tall-1//2.


I seen your post with JMG was trying to figure if was the nil cornell one or henko asugo.I think its nil cornell.I want some of your bee balm seeds.I have liliac ones(I keep checking to pick checked 2 days ago when mowed)Your rose 'cuttings' have gone to one,but have this rose spread in yard so can maybe divide one too.Your christmas epi segments are still alive in the shot glass& you have a kumquat seedling growing.If russell takes another job up Dallas area I'll have him get with you,but otherwise waiting for better shipping weather.

I'll have to shoot my MOT growing area(and other plants with MOT babies)

yep it will have to come indoors for frost.I've done them on the porch as cold GH and they've done fine.I just did them in kitchen last year cause I stopped useing that door cause of BIL dogs(they know how to open doors& they don't shut them..letting AC out other dogs out ect.real PITA sometimes...plus they taught my dog...but he uses his mouth,but does not do it every single time like BIL dogs)I plan on getting some small pots filled with soil and starting some babies.I just cleaned the deck of plants so can presure wash it and guess what.is MOT babies growing ON THE DECK.I've 2 pots new now...just from deck floor.

Keep fertilizeing the brugs.besides getting growth yours are settleing their roots too.I've only had one new one out 24 bloom.daydreams had dropped buds but is getting new ones(looks to be 4)but one seems bent at the tip.Both Dr Suess plants have buds one has 1 one has 2.The one returning from ground has just reached their hight and 'y'd.....and the one covered by BES vine...well its not y'd and I staked it.I think the vine enjoys all the fertilizer cause the other BES vine has not even bloomed yet& growing lots slower...with crinuims.while Jamicia yellow has 'y'd...plus has a ft of growth of above'y' plus has 'y'd again and I'm scratching my head as to WHERE's my BUDS?but its foliage has imrpoved greatly and looks lots healthier.Plus still got till late oct-nov for blooms.Unknown pink is of course loaded with blooms right now and are buds opening on frosty.my 2 old faithfuls.

I have lots of MOT (?!) also. It spreads all over and I have to keep picking it out of other beds. Plenty to share, if anyone is interested. I never knew the name. It was a hand out from a non gardener who knew I was. What does MOT stand for?

more like mega trillions huh.

I just picked the babies off that formed down stem so can chop my stem.That was on just ONE plant.Mr Katy(SIL duck) he ate hers.so I gladly replaced with some babies(I sent 7 good sized babies over 5 inches and some smaller ones)
