    For some reason, pink flowers are always relatively easy to photograph for me.

    EDIT - Hmm... I think I have to tone down the size of my portrait style pics. This one gets auto-resized by the forum, and it detracts from the photo quality. Try clicking on the picture in the pop-up to enlarge it to actual size. I'll know better than to make large portrait pics in the future.

    What is the trick to getting Barkerias to bloom? I have one that grows nice but no blooms except for a couple last year that looked like they came through a malfunctioning Transporter beam.

    The original portrait picture is 645x970, and it got resized to 551x828 pixels.

    I put this one in lots of sun with large temp swings. It's right up against a wall and in front of my evap cooler. Ursula led me to believe these things need a little abuse in order to flower. She was right.


    Ya know, I'm not sure. I've not noticed a smell on this one.
