Yep, new account, sorry about that, I had been planning on doing the move to this account for awhile. (some minor and annoying bugs and problems with my other account) ¬¬
Well here we go, a new blog, just for sunflowers. ^^
After some failed attempts the first sunflowers finally germinated and they are growing faster than what I thought they would. So the photos begin. :D
- Updates will be posted as the sunflowers grow. -
5/5/2010 - Sunflower seeds are now planted.
5/13/2010- All Sunflower seeds are dead, nothing, so I prepared a second batch, looks like I was right, I did a horrible seed selection. T_T
5/17/2010- Did a final 3rd batch with new seeds.
5/20/2010- The first two sunflowers germinate and by the protuberance on the little planting pot, soon there will be more. :)
5/31/2010- The sunflowers are growing... growing... growing fast! ^^ We have eight sunflowers on their way, in a few days they are changing home. :3
6/7/2010- The transplanting has been done and considering how harsh a transplant like that is the sunflowers are doing better than expected. ^^ Once they recover strength and get used to their new soil I'll start with the fertilizer, gonna feed them so they grow big and strong. :3
6/20/2010- Sunflowers are getting bigger, have grown more leaves and seem to have adapted to their home nicely, the trunks are still thin but I expect them to get wider soon, also, today is feeding time once again, LOL! ^^
7/3/2010- The sunflowers are happier, the tallest of the regular ones is 19.5in and the tallest of the dwarf ones is 5in and as of today two buds are beginning to form, huzzah! :0)
7/9/2010- In 6 days the regular sunflowers grew 4.5inches to 24inches each and the dwarf ones grew 3 inches to 8 inches each. :D
7/16/10- Tallest regular sunflower is 34inches, tallest dwarf one is 11inches, all four regular ones have buds with one currently opening, you can see the picture on the blog, one of the dwarf ones has a bud the other dont. They are all looking happy and healthy. ^^
8/1/10- The sunflowers (even if they were small) were a success, right now only 3 of the dwarf sunflowers are left to bloom, sunflower #1 and #8 are already gone and tomorrow I'll measure Sunflower #3 to see what was the height of the tallest sunflower. Right after the last flower blooms I'll start the process for the second sunflower adventure of 2010, stay tuned... ^^
8/2/10- The tallest sunflower reached a height of 52 inches, 4ft, 8inches, not bad.
8/8/10- Just two dwarfs left, so this generation of sunflowers is almost done, I have learned from my mistakes so lets see how my second generation does.
I'll keep updating and adding pictures.
All tips on sunflower grow and care are welcomed. :3
And if you want to say Hi go ahead.
Take care and thanks for reading my boring blog. LOL!
