MYSTERY PACKAGE ON MY DOORSTEP !!!

Post  kevin stoeveken on Thu Jun 04, 2015 1:10 pm

so, i get home from work yesterday and there is a package on the doorstep from lou's bonsai in florida... Shocked

and i think to myself: "self, did you order something and then forget that your ordered something ?" scratch

to which i replied: "nope... pretty sure, nope"

so, feeling fairly confident that it is not a letter-bomb, i opened it up...











so... secret admirer ? Embarassed
an enemy keeping me off balance ? Twisted Evil
or just a friend do a very nice thing ? Cool


hhmm, hhmm, hhmmmmmm................................ confused Wink Razz

at any rate, THANKS !!!

i'm not sure what it is, but by the flowers i might guess an ixora ???

What a nice surprise Kevin!  Congratulations!  I cannot help with the mystery of "who" or "why", but I can assist with "what" - it is definitely an Ixora, Ixora coccinea.  I'm certain that you know this is a tender tropical species and will need to be kept indoors in winter.

Yours,
David B.

well, if it came out of morrississeys back pocket i won't have to worry about watering it for a while...
that dude has a constant rain cloud over his head... Sad Sad Sad  Razz

so, lance you think it was given as a sign of drunken pig-love ?
and i thought that was all in my past Embarassed Laughing

and thanks david !
i was pretty sure about the ixora, and from what i have gathered so far,
it is a 'star of india' ixora which is commonly given as a sign of friendship...

Kevin,

bah humbug, it's an Ixora, but it's the middle size. There are three leaf sizes, large, medium and small.
An attractive shrub, but not the small ixora.
More research for me, but you can learn to keep it healthy.
Bah humbug!!!!

yes, the cutting i brought home from florida was very tiny leafed, but alas, she did not make it...

this one has a much better chance of survival.

thanks again Wink

Kevin,

will send a response later. Presently my friend and I are pipe threading, new galvanised lines for the house's water supply. The 1950 lines are supplying drips - Laughing

Hope he works.
