|A. 'Big Apple' -Award winner, DAVS, Oct 7, 2017|
Aeschynanthus ‘Big Apple’ has become an overnight success. They are available in every garden center, every supermarket plant department and every big box store as plant of the week.
I’ve missed April Fool’s Day, but it could happen.
With my discovery that this unknown flowering houseplant is a long-day to flower plant, it can be programmed to flower every week of the year – guaranteed.
Why won’t it happen? Because nobody will do it.
There are fewer pot plant growers than there used to be and thus fewer specialist liner producers promoting flowering plants like ‘Big Apple’.
There are a few things to test, like post-harvest reliability --- will the flowers hang on in shipping?
