Heart Anthuriums

Wednesday, July 15, 2015

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri to all my Muslim followers. Drive safely. Enjoy the holidays with your loved ones and friends :-)

Happy is when my plants are blooming gayly. My Anthuriums, also known as Tail Flowers, are especially special this week. Endless hot red blooms dotting the garden in the shade, well and pretty. 



The blooms will fade to a lighter red and then to green in the end.



They look the prettiest when they first appeared -- glorious in brilliant red colour!



How is the weather lately? It has been really hot but these two days, the rain is back. A big Zephyranthes rosea (Rosy Rain Lily) bloom appeared one morning after a heavy rain. And it lasted for another day.



The other day I saw the biggest Morus nigra (Mulberry) at a car park. Mine however is just a mini one in comparison. Also, the fruits are much smaller!



Grow moss anyone? Here is a pot of moss that I have been growing for a number of months. I can see that the mosses have settled and flourishing happily now.



Guzmania lingulata (Scarlet Star) bears outstanding blooms. These two deep red flower heads are going to grow taller and more obvious in the days ahead. 



Siderasis fuscata (aka.Bear Ears or Brown Spiderwort) is one exotic looking plant. The leaves are fuzzy and nice to touch. When in bloom, the flowers are an icing on the cake...



Happy gardening!

    1. Buy new ones, Endah! Mine is the small type that comes in small pots. I think they will grow slightly bigger in bigger pots. The usual colours found here are white, pink and red. Btw, enjoy the Raya holiday :-)

  5. Ohh...I'm a big fan of anthuriums in the middle of 90's. I have yellow, red, white, orange and pink color. They are so fabulous but as the time went by, the plants getting smaller and stunted. Last year I bought 3 of them but only one left.

    1. Wow I love to have a yellow one! They are fabulous, I agree. Hope the last one left will last forever :-) Btw I find plants get smaller and stunted when they are not happy with the environment.
