What is this flower, please? Answered

This single flower grew in my garden completely at random. I was so in love with the 'pom-pom' flower heads that I let it go to seed and planted hundreds of its seeds earlier this year. I have around 150-200 of the plants dotted around my gardens now to see where it thrives best. I have looked many times over this past year to identify the plant to no luck - can you help, please? I am in the the north of the UK, and this appears to flower in August time although I had only one early developer. The photo shows the plant in all its stages of flower, seeding and seed-bulbs. The flower itself lasts only a few days and had no scent. Many thanks! ;-)

flour shooting flower

watching this again inspired me to try and make my own, but can't find too much online in the way of ideas how to do it. any of you have any ideas how I could construct one? in the video he mentions it being co2 powered and the base is a faux sunflower. I was thinking about trying to start with a base from a cheap 20$ paintball gun. does anyone have any tips/hints before I get started on this? it was also suggested to buy one of these: and put flour in that, reloading could get tedious though.

Repotting flower plants

I tried repotting flowers from one pot to another but they die.  I am doing something wrong. How can I repot flower plants from one pot to another.  What soils and other items do I need and is there a certain size flower pot I have to repot them in or does it depend on how big I want the flower to grow.  I want to put these flower(s) plants on my patio.  Sometimes during the day my patio has a lot of sun and other times it does not.  What is the best flower plant(s) for this. What is the best way to take care of a repotted flower plant.

Flowering plant identification

I live in Chicago, IL and have a plant in my garden that I can't identify.  It is a  perennial.  The leaves are smoke-green and look a bit like marijuana leaves.  The plant drapes over and is covered in single yellow blooms that close up at night time and reopen each day.  Each flower has five flat heart shaped petals.  There is no odor to either the plant or the flower.  I will try to attach pictures to help with identification.  Thanks!

Flower identification, please? Answered

This beauty belongs to my friend in S. Cal.   She says it blooms once a year then goes dormant (dies back) until the following year and repeats the cycle. Sorry, this is the only picture I have. Can anyone identify it?

Anyone know how to paint real flowers onto walls?

My friend works in a flower shop and is going to be redoing the bathroom there to make it fit into the flower theme.  I remember seeing somewhere real leafs painted onto walls.  It seems like what they did was somehow secure a leaf onto the wall (glue would create a flat spot behind the lead) and painted over it.  The effect was the wall had the texture of the leaves.  Anyone have a good idea how to secure the leaves to the wall without ruining the texture of the leaves, or maybe another way to get this effect?

Freeze drying flowers at home????

Ok, so I've done a little searching and so far no one has said this can be done without expensive equiptment so I'm not getting my hopes up.   Here's my idea:  Place my flowers in a container with silica gel, seal it, and put the whole thing in a deep freezer for a couple weeks.  Then I would unplug the freezer to allow the temperature to slowly rise.  I THINK the silica gel will eliminate the need for a vacuum by absorbing the moisture instead of pulling it out.  Its a long shot, I know.  Has anyone tried this?  Does anyone think it would work?  Has anyone found another way to preserve flowers so they maintain their shape and color? I plan on coating them in resin to use in jewelry designs so they need to look as fresh as possible. Thanks for any ideas you can give me!

CIY: Bold Flower Necklace

Growing up I use to love playing with Play-Doh.  Something about the color, the texture, and the smell.  Oh, the smell… I remember I use to play with this contraption that I would attach little people to, that had holes in the tops of their heads.  I would crank a lever and the little people would grow Play-Doh hair.  I had hours of entertainment cutting and re-growing hair.  Ipad what? Oh, how entertaining kids has changed. I never imaged that I would get the chance to play with clay again in my thirties.  To create my Oscar de la Renta look I decided to grab some clay and go to town.  Unfortunately this clay did not have the Play-Doh smell I remember, but I still had just as much fun creating with it.

Votes are needed

It seems to me that not many people are voting in the Flower Contest.Of course, I have a vested interest, but I noticed that, when I first voted for Kitewife (well, you have to, don't you?), her 'ible jumped to fourteenth - that's nearly half way up the field.If one vote can have such an effect, then there can't be many votes being cast.Even if you didn't enter, even if you don't like flowers, these people have put a lot of work (and humour) into their entries, so at least have a look at them and vote for the deserving ones.Look, no spam - this is a sincere posting.

Question by furby 10 years ago  |  last reply 9 years ago


My datura has been flowering for about a month now, and it seems all the insects in the world have figured it out. It gets swarmed by moths, bees, flies, etc. every night now, so I ran out with my camera and caught some pics of the bees going crazah! The flowers bloom only at night and fade the following morning.  The fragrance is very strong and lovely, but the plant is DANGEROUS!  Native American people used the plant ritualistically to induce hallucinations, but consuming the plant can kill you.  Some people will develop contact dermatitis just from touching the soft, velvety leaves.  Despite its showy blooms and large leaves, the plant is drought tolerant and can take a lot of heat and sun.  It will self-sow readily, and I'm expecting a lot of seeds just gauging from how many blooms (and seed pods) I've had.  My plants are HUGE, and I never would have expected them to get so big so fast from little 4" pots.

GMO sun flower seeds, how can I tell? Answered

Hi fellow instrucablers, I planted some sunflowers a while ago and recently I collected the seeds from the flowers and replanted them.  The original seeds were from a packet which I threw away.  I've planted the new seeds and it's been a week and the haven't sprouted, I'm not sure if I was really unlucky or if the seeds have been genetically modified in order for them not to grow new plants.   I still have some seeds left over so I was wondering if there was anyway to tell if they have been modified somehow.

Are LEDS used in GROW LED LAMPS any different from regular, colored LEDs?

I've seen grow LED lamps for plants and flowers go for $100 to $200 on ebay and they look like simple red and blue LEDs in a lamp unit. These days anyone can do a lamp with LEDs since we have a wide variety of LEDs, drivers and casings at our disposal and at a very affordable price. Even if you add the cost of research and develpment and a healthy profit to remain in business into the cost of the device, I don't think the ratio cost-price of those lamps is fair. Those grow lamps seem to be a scam to me, unless the LEDs/drivers used on them are really more expensive than the widely available in the market. I am more inclined to think they priced their lamps artificially to cater to its intended market: deep-pocket obsessed gardeners, weed grow-op guys, fancy growers, etc. Why is that these lamps are that costly? What is the magic behind them or do they have "NASA" technology on them or what? Thanks for your input
