What Flower plant is this?

Question by pclasby    |  last reply


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.

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! ;-)

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?

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: http://images.halloweencostumes.com/squirting-sunflower.jpg and put flour in that, reloading could get tedious though.

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. Click here for the full tutorial!

Do I have to sand water clear casting resin?

I'm a COMPLETE novice when it comes to resin of any kind. But I'd like to start doing my own flower castings as a hobbie. I was thinking of buying water clear casting resin- I want to be able to see the detail in the pieces but recently after watching a few videos and researching, i've found that I have to go through a sanding process. I thought that if I buy water clear then I wouldn't have to sand it because you will see the details? am I wrong in thinking this. Also,  if I cast items in glass jars will they come out super clear?

How to make natural flower jewelry? Answered

I have searched everywhere and cannot get any info on this. I am trying to get instructions on aking real (natural) rose & natural flower and leaf jewelry. I have seen these for sale, but there is never any info on how to do it. They are still in their 3d shape and some even remain soft and pliable. I think it is down with resin , poly resin, or acrylic. An example can be seen at: www.firemountain.com after you reach the website, in the search box enter item # H20-7497JW I am also posting a photo for you to see. As I said, there is NOTHING on any sites with instructions. Thanks so much, Patti Meadows

Q: flower-pot mounted in plastic bottle partially filled with water

Hi, i have major water-issues here in the garden (steep southern slope in the mountains; little earth:; hot in the summer). so i always play around and look for solutions. latest play: i cut off a bottle, filled it with an inch of water, and then, a couple inches above inserted a flower-pot that tightly fits. q: is there a chance that the roots will eventually feed of the ´tank´ at the bottom of the bottle so that no waterinbg of the flower(pot) is needed (sort of a self-contained system)?bowing (flower, too)

Options for making a moving/wiggling stem for a flower toy?

I am NOT talking about those flower desk toys that make the entire flower wave. What I would like is to make a toy flower that had a stem that could wiggle if you pushed a button or triggered a sensor. It would move like the picture below. I have no idea what the mechanism would be inside the stem so I would like some ideas on that. The simplest/cheapest mechanism would be the best option. Thank you!

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?
