Anyway, I present some verbal diarrhea with some pictures.
|I haven't named this P. afra yet. Funny, because I've had it for about two months now. It's a really good, easy plant. It's grown a ton of new leaves, has never dropped one on me, and loves her sunny spot on the windowsill.|
|This is a new plant. It's Rhipsalis rhombea, though I've read that that's not a recognized species. (Species? Cultivar?) I've walked away from it before, but not this time. Mom bought some plants so I got two as well.|
|Kalanchoe tubiflora. It's grown a HELL of a lot in the two or so weeks I've had it. It put on a full inch without me noticing. I picked it up on Sunday and then saw a picture of it after purchase. Wow.|
|Oh my god, I love his leaves.|
|This is Queen Anne, a Pothos 'Marble Queen'. She's named after my mother. She's everything my mom is - tolerant, subtle yet beautiful, and generous.|
|And generous she is - she's trying to give me three more new leaves after popping out two in the last two weeks. Another shoot is starting from the soil. Queen Anne is happy as a Pothos.|
1. I do agree with the sentiment that not enough plant bloggers actually blog about their failures. As a beginner, I fully admit to my failures. Jazzy does not look happy for whatever reason and it's frustrating because I fuss over her. I try to keep her moist then leave her alone in a sunny spot. She was fine with this until I left. I don't get it.
I killed an Aeonium that was gorgeous because it's really not an indoor plant, and an Echeveria after I left for 3 days. I watered it and everything but it called it quits while I was gone. I'm thinking too much heat near the window. I've thrown away plenty of dead outdoor plants.
2. I'm in the process of ordering from Mr. S. I'm really excited about the plants I want. I may get a "real" Christmas cactus!!!!
3. Trying to save money for a house when there are perfectly good plants for sale is HARD.
That's it for now. Alla prossima!
