Flowering air plants

29 May

So pretty. 
I don’t spend a lot of time caring for these, just dip them in water once every three weeks or so.

Before opening September 25th. 

   
The same night it opened. We attempted to play night time bumblebee and poked around at th pollen/stamen parts with a stick. 

 
Morning after still looks beautiful September 26th.

End of April 2014 update.

Surprisingly, my neglected garden isn’t as bountiful as it was when I tended to it more. Peaches are small, blueberries are fewer…

Still, the few I get taste good.

My pineapple guava is flowering once again, I think last year it didn’t do so much.

And excitingly, my olive tree is flowering. The flowers are tiny! I just bought this little tree about a month or two ago.

Finally, my fennel is starting to look like fennel. Boy these take a long time to grow but are very pretty plants.

BLACK thumb corner. Oh the shame

I have neglected my lotus 😦
Will try again when I am done with all my studies. Seems harder to look after something besides regular plants that just require watering. Anyway, enough excuse. Here are the yuckie pictures – don’t hate me!

Rehoming growing lotus

24 Mar

I moved everything around a little bit as the lotus water was getting yuckie and it needed a bigger home. I found this fish bowl laying around so hopefully it will be perfect for my little lotus.

Also added rocks to the vase lotus.
