Garden in a pot... yup, I used the lid of my pot to cover this sphere-shaped closed terrarium that I just constructed. Anyway, this terrarium is going to be in my house temporarily only. It belongs to a friend, I am just helping him to revitalise it and here is the result...
...the biggest terrarium I have ever constructed. It is about the 15 inches (38 cm) wide by 13 inches (33 cm) tall.
Here is a close-up look. I purposely make it look like a fernery ;-) Cool? I have a Maidenhair Fern, Victoria Fern and some Snake Skin Plants inside...
The other terrarium is an open type. So I used a big pine-like succulent and some cacti to fill the terrarium. I hope the cacti will grow faster so that they can fill the spaces with more greens :-)
Thanks to the sunny mornings even when it's often raining in the evenings, this group of plants below were blooming and flourishing with gay. Notice the Caladium in the middle? The leaves are more colourful when grown in the sun!
How colourful! I like!!...
Again, more Forever Roses® mini roses... I have six pots of them altogether and only one is pink. The rest are all yellow. Their colours are more intense when planted outside :-)
My Dwarf Ixora is in full glory this week, yippie!
Not forgetting, the Iresine herbstii plant (known as Chicken Gizzard Plant) that is growing next to the Turmeric. I just love the look of the plant and the colour of leaves this time around :-D
Below is a close-up look of the inflorescence of the Alocasia sp. after the 'hood' has dropped downwards, showing the spadix. Btw, if anyone has a solution for yellowing tips, please share. This plant has been giving me this problem ever since I bought it.
Have a great day!
