I talk about my neighbor as if she was the crazy plant lady! Today I got to the conclusion: the crazy plant lady is me, she can’t beat me. (yes, this is in my house)
Pachypodium lamerei at Kew Gardens
I made lots of kokedama today!
A true epiphyte with gorgeous patterns and a need to climb!
This is my biggest mounted specimen and also my favorite one as well. It’s a monster and is so heavy!
Each plant is close to two feet tall, probably larger, and they hold a ton of water. The leaves are also heavily armed like most aechmeas, but how can you say no to a plant like this?
Goes in the greenhouse every winter and in full sun during the rest of the year! It’s best to grow it mounted due to its stoloniferous habit.
This is such a great plant.
It will get some nice color later in the summer!
The genus Leucocoryne (Asparagales - Amaryllidaceae/Alliaceae), known in Chile as Huilli and internationally as Glory of the Sun, is endemic to Chile.
These bulbous plants present a great inter and intraspecific genetic variation, especially for the features of shape and color of tepals and staminodes.
Vetches and passion flowers have modified some of their leaves and converted them into tendrils. These grope around in space until they touch the stem of another plant and swiftly coil around it. The tendrils then coil and pull the plant up towards the sunlight.
