The plant was blooming almost non-stop though the blooms were emerging one-by-one. The cooler temperature has certainly brought much comfort for this petite spiral ginger :-)
I have been replanting Senecio confusus 'Sao Paulo' due to its very attractive flowers. The vine tends to turn brown (dry up) after some time.
And it seems that it likes to stretch out far. After I took below photo, I put a bamboo stake for it to climb onto. I hope the vine would be happier and bloom more flowers!
Oh, where are my watering cans? As if you don't notice them, haha... Wish they were black (and the bin too!) so that they don't stand out like a sore thumb in my garden :P
These chillies certainly make my garden look bountiful, haha...
One group of plants that I like to collect is Kalanchoe. This Kalanchoe pinnata flourished several "babies" from its leaf. I am so fascinated by how it can just produce those little plants so easily.
Another new Kalanchoe added to my garden recently is this Kalanchoe delagoensis, commonly called Chandelier plant or Mother of Millions. Little plantlets are growing on the tips of its leaves now...
Delighted by the juicy and very sweet flesh of a pineapple I ate the other day, I decided to plant its head into a pot after rooting it in water. Glad I found a space for it to settle in ;-)
Though some plants bear tiny flowers, they look amazing when they blossom lots of them. Cuphea hyssopifolia or Mexican False Heather is a good example. Don't you think so?
I thought this Caixin 'Hong Kong' (a leafy vegetable from the Mustard Family) would grow bigger leaves during rainy days. But I was wrong. I suppose I need to harvest them already as one plant has already sent out a stalk of tiny yellow flowers...
My Dendrobium orchids are still intact... yippie!
Have a wonderful day!
