Our “flowering” bush, cassia. Sigh. Spotted a second flower! Unfortunately, you must look close. It’s been a year now from the 10” twig I found here when we moved and saved from my son’s planned decapitation. Wish I could figure out how to get it to bloom. #Botany #Plants

Tiny yellow flower is about 1/4” diameter but down inside a giant 4’ tall round bush.

No chili plants this year, but instead an overall improvement. Hopefully I'll get this balcony more green next year. And those concrete walls need covering.

A very bare concrete balcony with some young chili plants. A sad chair sits in the middle of the floor. Old mountainbike tucked away, disassembled under a shelf.
Same balcony, no chili plants but a wooden floor covers the concrete and a lounge set sofa with some pillows makes it much more cozy.

I can't tell if my parlor palm is doing better or worse. The day I brought it home I noticed some of the tips were a little dull and they slowly turned from brown to yellow. I guess it's about the same and they are slow growers, plus my cat keeps using it as a snack, so maybe that's why I can't tell. 😅 I'm just watering it and fertilizing it as instructed. But my maranta is rapidly growing a leaf! Pretty exciting to watch. Two days ago it was barely peeking through.

I am trying to get 4 tomato plants in pots out on my back patio to survive the awful bugs that kill them every year

I read that peppermint is a good bug deterrent so I wiped a little peppermint oil on the edges of each pot

I plan on buying netting to keep birds away too and I will look for other bug repellent plants to set near my pots

What else should I do to minimize bugs pls? There's so many types in huge numbers near this 100yr old WV house

We're spending the morning with these quiet, meditative drawings by Yuria Okamura that meditate on the sacredness of #plants through delicate symmetries #drawing #art

A symmetric drawing of plants and geometric shapes in an ornate motif

It’s my birthday week so I spoiled myself with plants. They got potted up today.

My mum and a friend are coming to visit this weekend and I can’t wait to show them all my plants.

The newbies are:

- Echeveria Doublette
- Echeveria Calico Cream
- Echeveria Zanadoo
- Echeveria unknown bumpy (the mother plant was stunning)
- Echeveria Flying Cloud
- Echeveria Hakuhou (if anyone knows how to pronounce that I’d appreciate the help)
- Echeveria Lotus Lantern?
- Echeveria Black Rose hybrid?
- Echeveria Blue Peacock
- Echeveria Winter Jasmine
- Conophytum Bilobum

#echeveria #conophytum #succulents #SucculentsOfMastodon #SucculentsOfTheFediverse #plants #gardening #GardeningAU #GardeningAus #GardeningAustralia #BirthdayWeek #BirthdayTreats

Clockwise from left:
Echeveria Doublette has rounder, thick leaves in a tighter rosette that blend from green in the centre to purple at the frilly edges. 

Echeveria Calico Cream has brighter green leaves in the centre and more khaki outer leaves. They have orange frilly edges and are in a loose rosette shape. The leaves are rounder with a couple of larger leaves across from each other. 

Echeveria Zanadoo has large purple/brown leaves that are lighter green at the very centre. There are a few newer, smaller leaves in the centre and a number of larger leaves in the outer layer that all form a loose rosette.
Clockwise from top:
Echeveria unknown bumpy has bright red leaves on the outside that become more maroon and then green at the centre. The leaves are frilly and in a rosette. There’s also a small baby plant to the right of the mother plant growing off the same stem. 

Echeveria Flying Cloud has long, thin, pale pink and green variegated leaves that curl up loosely towards the centre of the plant. 

Echeveria Hakuhou has thick, pale yellow/orange outer leaves and pale green inner leaves. They’re more spade shaped and tend to grow in pairs on opposing sides, with the next pair filling the gaps.
Clockwise from top:
Echeveria Lotus Lantern is in a tight rosette with small leaves that are green with thick, red edges. It appears to be a towering succulent, where rather than growing a long stem, the leaves grow in ever increasing layers. M

Echeveria Dark Rose hybrid is much darker in person than the camera captured. It is also in a tight rosette and has dark purple leaves with “claws” on the tips of each leaf. 

Echeveria Blue Peacock is again a tighter rosette. It has paler purple outer leaves and darker purple and white centre with an almost gelatinous look in some spots.
Top: Echeveria Winter Jasmine has chubby, pale peach coloured leaves in the outer layers and pale green in the centre. The leaves are more spear shaped and form a looser rosette.  

Bottom: Conophytum Bilobum is a cluster of small plants that are mid green with a reddish line across the top. The line is broken by a dip in the top of the plant that makes them look almost heart shaped. There are nine plants in the cluster.

Photograph of the side of a medieval, tile-roofed french house with a downspout. It is almost completely obscured by vines and other greenery of many textures, which cascades down (starting from the roof), and hangs over an unseen brook. Fruit and flowers hang from limbs and vines, four pickets of a fence are barely visible in the dense green, and here and there red leaves peek through. There is an opening in the building's wall, through which we get a glimpse of an old storage shelf. Visible among the wall of vines, are four insect houses with peaked roofs, stuffed with short twigs and little door-like panels. The entire picture is incredibly dense.

All four of our Devil's Tongue babies are growing. I am very excited. 😊

I love these odd plants.
They're all foliage in the summer but, in the early spring, they produce a single giant dark red flower that smells like death. (It's related to the corpse flower.)

With our luck, they'll all flower next January and stink up the house. 😄

it looks just like the larger papyrus i have elsewhere (pic 3), including the distinguishing "tall bit with more leaves coming out" (pic 2).

i still haven't figured out exactly where papyrus wants to live in our climate, but these ones aren't dead yet!

they're meant to grow in water, but the air is water here, so they can grow in soil maybe

in the town nearest to me, they hate trees. last year they cut down two giant lychee trees. in another part of the parking lot (the town is mainly parking lot), they cut down a bunch of conifers, but left the cell phone tower disguised as a tree.

and now this. the tiny post office cut down this perfectly fine plumeria. what is the reason? what did the plumeria do to them?? drop leaves??

even the buddhist temple does it! they killed a huge monkeypod tree on their lawn.

as someone who likes to grow orchids, i enjoy seeing how they grow "in the wild". it helps me understand the conditions i'm trying to create for them in cultivation.

observing orchids in the forest led me to creating "forest floor mix" medium (using stuff i find on the forest floor), & now "forest canopy" medium (using stuff that is found in the canopy: moss, leaf litter, dried branches, etc.). yay learning!

i found a baby #orchid growing in the bark & moss of a dead 'ohi'a lehua branch.

i'm guessing the seed landed in the moss patch on the bark (many 'ohi'a have moss growing on their bark). the moss provides a stable, moist, cool, shady env't that still has airflow. the orchid's root burrows into the flaky outer bark bits of the 'ohi'a & then grab onto the tree itself.

anyway, i kept the whole thing together & found a new tree nook for it to live in ^-^

Just a tiny prehensile-tailed #porcupine called #Wilbur eating a slice of #banana 😂🍌🙌
