A PRESENT

I received a present from an old lady the other day and I am pleased with it. I am always happy when I get a plant or flowers.

I was given a beautiful phaelenopsis, I know some people find it nothing special but I love orchids, what’s not to love about orchids ??? When you just look at their beauty you feel happier instantly !

PHAELENOPSIS

I have the same orchid in snowwhite with a purple heart, exactly the same colour as the new orchids colour.

HE IS DOING IT AGAIN !

He is doing it again my Begonia Muddy Waters, in the middle of the dark season, when the days are short and grey Mister Muddy is doing it again; blooming. The buds are tiny but so very pretty, I love it ! He has almost black leafs and it is a leaf begonia, you don’t buy him for  his abundant blooms. It is one of the easiest potplants I know and in Winter I love to see his tiny flowers.

FOR THE NOT SO GREEN FINGERED

 

Many people say they don’t have green fingers but there are plants that are so easy to look after that a 2 year old can  do it !!

One of the easiest plants on earth must be the sanseviera, otherwise known as snake plant, snake skin plant or mother-in-laws tongue. You probably all know some sanseviera species, but there are so many different ones, and some are prettier or smaller or bigger than the other one, that depends on taste of course. And they are aircleaners too, so it is healthy to have them in your house !!

At the moment the sanseviera is in fashion again, hurray ! As I have a collection of cati and succulents in my house I have a few species of sanseviera and one of the strongest is for sure the SANSEVIERA FERNWOOD PUNK (see picture below)

You can only kill it by watering too much. It needs light but no direct sun and for a plant the size like this one ; about half a pint of water once in 3 or 4 weeks, if you forget, no problem it keeps smiling !

So for all of you who think you  have no green thumb, this is your plant.

Have fun trying it out. If you have questions please don’t hesitate to ask !

Thanks for visiting my blog, it is much appreciated.
