Re: Ceres/bringing the yard inside

Hi Ceres-sorry it took so long to reply. My Tibouchina doesn't really start
blooming well until later summer. In your climate, I'd guess you would need
to fertilize the heck out of it with major phosphorus early in spring and
keep it up. I have two different types of tibouchinas, can't recall their
species name at the moment, they come in to the greenhouse, my cacti,
begonias, tropical hibiscus, a few ferns, and that's about it. I have to
prune some of them pretty severely to get them to fit, but we have such a
long growing season that it doesn't matter for me. They start putting out
new growth in the greenhouse in the winter. Oh, and of course I move my
orchids inside, but I usually keep them in the house so I can keep a close
eye on them.
