New Plants, Old Plants

Saturday, November 29, 2014

Glad I spotted the flower of my Kaempferia pulchra plant. Good thing it was facing the doorway, else I would have missed it. Saw it as I was walking out to the garden one morning. This one is unusually 'shy'... hiding inbetween the leaves ;-)



Actually the shrub has not been flowering for some time. A little 'pampering' goes a long way. After a few times of feeding, the shrub is now flowering more frequently. Still, just a bloom at a time. Here is the flower that blossomed after the 'shy' one...




Pinguicula sp. (Butterwort), Dionaea sp (Venus Fly Trap) and a very small Nepenthes sp. are all in one pot -- a mini bog garden of carnivorous plants...



And in front of the mini bog is my new pot of Impatiens which has white flowers with pink edges. I thought the shrub is never going to bloom lots of flowers. I was wrong. After a week in the garden, the shrub is more floriferous.



I have been growing a few Oxalis corniculata plants in the past. This one is new and I consider it a replacement for the ones that had wilted. Now keeping my fingers crossed for this one ;-)




Here is a Pleiopilos nelii 
that I am growing for the first time. It's as cute as a button!



Anthuriums are beautiful plants! Love how they look when the blooms are out. Previously I had one but it eventually wilted due to the prolonged wet soil the plant was settled in and the gloomy sky during the rainy season. Now for these new batch of anthuriums I hope they are good survivals ;-) 





Tillandsia sending out its flower soon... 




Found an interesting Alocasia sp. the other day at the nursery. It looks like Alocasia cuprea or perhaps it is one of those Alocasia nebula, hmmm... not sure of the ID though. Are you growing this plant?



Also, anyone knows the ID of this plant?



The last sight of my white-and-red Gloxinia. The flowers are all spent now. And I have trimmed the whole bush. 



Have a great day!

    1. Hello Normala Saad, these impatiens are smaller in size. I think they are different (different variety) from the usual pink and red impatiens. Re pleiopilos, well, I think I might have over-watered it already as the little plant looks like rotting. Hmmm... not sure if it can recover... anyway, happy gardening!

    1. Hello Vasudha Somayaji, thank you for your compliments. Anthurium dislikes wet soil and likes to be fed regularly. But the blooms are usually not plenty when grown in my garden :-( These are still new ;-) Have a wonderful day.

    1. I am afraid that the little pleiopilos is gone now :-( Shouldn't have water the succulent that day as it was cloudy and rainy weather all the way after that.
