Some times I wonder....

" Some times I wonder" I think that's a beginning of a song . But , I do some times wonder if I've got too many bloody plants !
Indoor door ,outdoor  plants !  I seem to be endlessly moving from one group to another, and they all have different needs.
Above are my  morning light  needing window ledge Gesneriads  , sitting on gravel trays .  They are all happily blooming this time of year... just remember to give them a drop of water every morning , but not get the leaves wet !

I find that I need to wipe condensation from inside every morning. Many of the plants dislike wet leaves .




The make  shift Vivarium , to house the moisture loving Orchids , I've been tweeking it when I take the Orchids out to water them . So far , so good !

They even have an fan to circulate the air around

Japanese  Neo finfinatia falcata Orchids ! I like to grow them the traditional Japanese way wrapped in Sphagnum moss, This needs to be redone very year . the roots grow so long , that they poke out the bottom of the moss .  I water them when the moss feels crispy dry . And in the winter not at all .

More Orchids !

Then there is the Bonsai . Which is just ...
