This section of the web site reviews each year of our adventure, with details not found in other sections of the site -- things like plant and flower numbers, successes and failures, big and small things we've learned. It also discusses things we want to do, things we want to know, things we speculate about. It is sequential, often with questions raised one year answered the next. We don't go back and rewrite.

Our Adventure With Victoria 2007
Stranger and Stranger
by Kit & Ben Knotts - Click images to enlarge

One of our 2007 amazonicas was very strange. It produced six flowers but shed five of the pods prematurely. In August, as it was shedding its pods, it put up distorted smaller pads, when other amazonicas were just getting up to speed.

We dug it up before it died, dissecting the crown to see if we could find a reason for the odd pads and behavior. We found no cause but it was interesting.
