At Last!Saturday, May 11, 2013
I was glad to see the first bloom opens. I have seen many gardeners having success with Ground Orchid, Spathoglottis kimballiana but I find it really difficult as the tubers kept rotting due to the prolong rain and I suspect the wild squirrels come around to dig and eat them as well. Anyway, good thing I didn't give up. Here is the bloom... I used to have a few colours but now only this remained.
My poor Azalea flower didn't get to blossom well this time. After the below stage it has been destroyed by the heavy rain.
The Ant Plant, Dischidia pectenoides that I have a hard time finding a suitable place for it to climb and thrive has at last, after having been chucked at the base of my Bokchoonara orchid for it to climb onto the orchid, is now doing rather well ;-)
Perhaps one plant that stood out better than the rest during this period of bad weather is the Kaempferia pulchra. The leaves suddenly show more and more patterns and its flowers have been blossoming too.
Happy watching your plants flower and show off their beautiful foliage. Have a great weekend!
