Ogden Standard-Examiner, Sunday,- October 3, 1971 9C INDOOR GARDENER'S GUIDE Some Episdos in Bloom All the Time MRS. JAY R. PETTINGILL NEW BRIDE Brigham City Miss Weds in Foil Rites By KATHERINE B. WALKER Episcias .. are. cousins of! African violets, grown.primarily j for their colorful foliage. Some varieties,. however, .are constantly in bloom, and when such plant finds an. environment that really suits it, it can be the growingest, bloomingest plant 'ou ever had. Episcias are usually grown as trailers. The plants send out stolons which form new plant- ,ets at their tips; these, in turn, send out more stolons, 'and almost before you know it, the ;lant has made • a curtain of lower-studded foliage.. Also before you know it, though, the slant may begin to drop long engths of stems, older leaves will turn brown and crisp, and the whole thing looks like a sickly mess. After having had this happen once or twice when I couldn't blame it 'on . the temperature falling below sixty or lack of proper watering, I decided to do something about it. Actually, episcias are classed as creepers, and in iny opinion they should be grown as such. As .an experiment I took two identical, newly-rooted plantlets a few months ago, potting one in a small hanging basket, the other in a wide, shallow pot. They got the same soft, light, temperature and so on. The basket-grown plant now is in constant bloom, the foliage is a good color, mature leaves are :our inches long, and stolons run four to five inches .before EPISCIAS are classed as creepers and should be grown as such. With proper lighting and moisture, the plant will make a curtain of flower-studded foliage. handsomer specimen than the Dasket-grown plant. We have a booklet on episcias; if you'd like a copy in order to learn the details of their care, do write to me,- Katherine B. Walker, in luxuriant growth, you can ex- imost of the.population had ever 'heard the word "ecology.". .QUESTION. I say .a plants's soil should be moist before plant food (the .soluble type) is ap- .plied; my neighbor says a dry plant will soak up the nutrients better. Who's, right? ANSWER. You both are. A dry plant will indeed soak up more moisture, and the nutrients in it, than a plant in moist soil. But it is also more susceptible to fertilizer burn. I believe prewatering before feeding is the safer method. QUESTION. How many plants can you call by their proper names, without having to look them up? ANSWER. I have no idea, but the number would be in the hundreds. I'm sure. Many, of course, I might know only by j their generic names, .while others I know by their specific names as well. And sometimes I know only what family a plant belongs to (which means I have I to look up the genus), andj sometimes, too, I just plain | don't have the slightest idea] what kind of a plant I'm looking I at! QUESTION. I dug several geraniums from the garden for winter bloom indoors but already they're beginning to pect your plant to live longer, h 00 k sickly.
