    The "Sterling" zygo on the front patio. The "White Fantasy" has now finished.

    These are some of the flowers on the "White Fantasy" which is recovering from the attack of the brown rot. This pic was taken yesterday.

    The "Sterling" zygoes are still flowering. It is good to see these different zygoes staggering their blooming. Means the display lasts longer. :excited:

    Am so happy to see that the zygo plants which had the brown rot, have recovered sufficiently to be able to bloom so well. Guess one should never give up on sick plants & toss them into the trash without trying to save them.

    This zygo plant, which suffered from brown rot, continues to astound me. Even the still shrivelled bits of it are flowering. Sure, they are deformed but, nevertheless, they are flowers. They are both smaller than the "normal" flowers which are about 8cms in length. It is obvious in this image as to how shrivelled the stem or leaves are.

    There are two of them which have opened. This one is 4 1/2cms long & is a deeper pink than the other "White Fantasy" flowers.

    A couple of images of flowers from the other, less shrivelled, & healthier looking, bits of the plant.

    These beautiful plants have now finished their flowering cycle for this year. :sad3: They are, unfortunately, looking rather sad with all their withered up flowers. Must say they did put on a wonderful display for us & it lasted for quite some time. Good to see during our winter. :bravo: :excited: :clap:

    Think these are the last three zygo flowers of this season, unfortunately. They did give us a wonderful display for several weeks. These are "Strawberry Fantasy" which opened later than the "White Fantasy". I, actually, thought they weren't going to flower at all. :blush:

    Just checked & it has been two months, in fact. That is excellent!! :excited:

    Our oldest zygo, which we bought 22 years ago, has been given a new home. Finally!! :D We bought this zygo when we lived on the pleasure cruiser & it did its fair share of salt water cruising. :whistle:

    When we settled on dry land, it coped with that as well. It grew & grew until it finally had to be put into a reasonably large container. After a while in this container it became obvious that something else had made it its home. This was a self-sown maidenhair fern. At first the zygo was the dominant occupant but this happy state of affairs didn't last. When we moved to our present abode, the maidenhair fern loved its new environment & thrived, much to the detriment of the zygo. :sad: It had stopped flowering a few years previously &, eventually, looked to be gone. :sad3:

    The maidenhair fern started to look very tatty so after a while I felt it needed to be shorn. Did hope it would regrow. The big surprise was that there was a solitary piece of the old zygo still hanging on & had been growing through a particularly thick clump of maidenhair stems. How it managed to survive is still a mystery but we are very glad it did so as it was a favourite of Bruiser's & it used to sit in the pilothouse of the boat we were on. It has flowered twice, with only one flower each time, since it was rediscovered. After about eighteen months it became obvious that the maidenhair was not going to regrow so a couple of days ago we, very carefully, extricated the zygo from the dense mass of roots & dead stems from, what was, the maidenhair fern & placed it into its own pot. The snails had chewed it somewhat but there is some new growth, so we hope it will do ok in its new home. :luck:
