This is the Peace lilly from Frans Nanna.I am trying to make it healthy and hopefully flower again.
It has been fed i think with tea from the bottom of cups with rich tea biscuits.
Its now back on a diet of water, and dilute plant flood.
The leaves had yellowed because of the Sunlight from where it was positioned.I hope they green up in the semi light of the flat, away from the Windowills.About eight foot away!
The Bird of Paradise plant, with its brand new leaf in the middle. I have seen them all over the place now. Shops and nurserys seem to be stocking exotic species from before.
The bird of paradise you can even buy the flower as a cut one, plus the plants.Orchids are on sale too, and i bought another one today.
I like my baby bird of paradise plant and it will hopefully grow big, and last for years.From a small plant in a box to a specimin plant in a large ceramic pot, maybe with a bird design on the pot.Aztec style?
Look at what I found today...I only went for some food shopping, but thought I would try to buy some busy lizzie seeds. I did but also acquired this gorgeous Jewel Orchid, and some Mimulus plus busy lizzie seeds.
I will try to photograph it better.The leaves are like black velvet that shines in the light like holograms, with pale veins.
The plant has flower buds and the most delicate pink leaves up the stem.
It is supposed to be hardy, a ground dwelling terrestial orchid from south east asia.
It is grown for its beautiful leaves, whose mad surface defy photography.I will try though.
They have white, scented flowers.More posts about them soon..
I also have my Cactus, Easter Cactus, and Mother in Laws tongue which i consider as house plants. I was eyeing up a spider plant today but resisted the temptation.
The Jungle of my flat is greening up.Hils Charity plant sale is on the fourth of June.I will move the majority of what has grown to that I think.I seriously need a house with a garden :(
Untill then I will keep trying to grow a phenomenal amount of plants, seedlings, and exotics on my three windowsill lol.Hope your gardens are giving you as much pleasure as my indoor garden is.
