The weather was so unpredictable last week. It was cloudy yet with not much rainfall. However, it was quite an exciting week for my garden.
I had earlier bought a Gloxinia as a gift for a friend's birthday. Then when I went shopping with my girl friend Debbie, I bought one for myself too. I thought it would be good to know how long this kind of flowering potted plants could last in our climate.
I repotted the Gloxinia into a larger container. It would be good to see more flowers later :-).
Then the next morning as I was on my way out, I noticed a strange-looking thing growing from my Alocasia Poly.
It's actually the spadix and spathe flower! It last showed up from my caladium plant and earlier from the Zeze plant and Aglaonema plant in my garden.
Hmm... now I wonder which other plant in my garden would have the same kind of flower.
Meanwhile, a yellow Portulaca also blossomed for the first time!
