In March my Frangipani (Plumeria) looked like this:
|Frangipani April 2011|
And now it has flushed out with some lovely leaves.
For April's Hope Grows I am looking forward to some flowers on the Frangipani, which smell heavenly.
I am also watching this orchid with considerable anticipation.
I was gifted this plant over 2 years ago, and told to put it directly in the ground in a semi-shaded location. The person that gifted this orchid told me it was a cane orchid and showed me his proud photo of this orchid growing everywhere in his yard.
It limped along for 2 years and now finally has some buds on it. I also noticed that the ants seem to be rather interested in the bud. I read someplace to sprinkle garlic around the plant to deter them. Meanwhile, maybe someone can help me properly identify this type of orchid please?
