Will Wonders never Cease!


Cecil and I have a new "Baby" and we never knew it was pregnant :o).....
Here goes for a nice story...Years ago Cecil had a "Corn Plant" on his job that was about 9 years old and it bloomed! I never saw the bloom...and when the Job folded he gave the plant to our Son...who gave it away when he moved..Here is a close up of the bloom, just in case that's something new to you too! They Bloom.
Now 9 years later (we moved here in 1999) The first plant we bought was a "Corn Plant" it wasn't any more than 3 feet tall if that much...It has grown up to the Ceiling and is almost bending over, and needs to be potted in a larger pot...I have to move it, and soon! It will call for Major re-decorating :o)
You can see that the ceiling gets higher in the middle of the room, I have a few idea's ....just have to give them time to "materialize" in my brain, and not cost a fortune, you know, one of those "do it yourself" thingies :o). In time I'll think of something....I always do!

What a neat post. Would you believe it. I had just been wondering about corn blooming. I heard something described as "corn flower blue" and started thinking corn must bloom or you couldn't have corn flowers. Is it just regular corn like you'd plant in your garden?

Deborah I don't think so! It seems to be more like "ornamental" I have some Pear trees that bloom but don't give fruit we can eat, but the birds do fine with it..If the bloom changes I'll snap another shot and post it....Ginny

What a lovely decoration, and how convenient that your ceiling gets higher to accommodate this indoor miracle. Good luck with the rearranging!

Ginny, not only did I not know that they bloom, I've never heard of or seen a corn plant. I've seen corn in a garden or field, of course, but not like this as a house plant. I enjoyed reading this. Good luck with repotting. :)

I'm glad I lived to see it bloom.
Cecil and I always say , if it happens, it happens to us! Well, I say "When the heck are we going to hit the picket" Cecil says , "you have to be in it to win it" (I'm too fugal to spend the money for a ticket! I say it's just a game to raise hopes while it picks your pocket.Ginny
