Great #succulent#bonsai : the thick #root and #trunk eventually can be trained to the shape of a odd #mini_bonsai . It has small, pebble-like leaves and lovely daisy-like yellow flowers in winter. It needs some direct sunlight to bloom well and if it is too cloudy the flowers fail to open entirely.
Origin and Habitat: South Africa
I have two small pots of this beautiful plant and hope to someday become like these pix.
Look how many babies I pulled off my pilea! All but one of the smaller pots was in her pot! I may have murdered one by snapping a big root so please send thoughts and prayers 😂🤦🏻♀️🙏🏻 I think they will thrive in terracotta. Or die, even odds. #plantabuser#sorrylittledude
Dischidia nummularia - string of nickels
Originates from the tropical rainforests of South East Asia
KEEP ON THE DRY SIDE- they absorb water from the atmosphere and don’t need soil to survive

The garden of the Domaine du Rayol in Southern France hosts a really nice palm collection. Photos taken in August 2019.
1. Blue Hesperpalm (Brahea armata) from Baja California, Mexico in full bloom!
2. Chilean wine palm (Jubaea chilensis), there are around 10 of this size, will look impressive in some decades... 3. Brahea edulis
4. Rhopalostylis sapida from New Zealand - the southernmost occurring palm in the world.
5. Canary Island date palm (Phoenix canariensis) self-seeding close to the shore... 6. Himalayan fishtail palm (Caryota maxima)
7. Archontophoenix cunninghamiana from Australia
8. The tree fern valley
9. Dracaeno draco from the Canary Islands
10. The European fan palm (Chamaerops humilis) is popping up everywhere!!!
Too many players to name! All to say that we love statuary, conifers, deciduous trees, bulbs, succulents and herbaceous perennials for a garden in all seasons. We describe our beds as a mixed border. We feel this style of gardening allows for four seasons of interest and creates structure and colour to please everyone. Follow @yellowbirdmanor
Visiting one of my favourite nurseries here in Berlin as every Sunday, I brought home this beautiful red peperomia caperata Quito. It's my second Quito! Cannot resist to peperomias I'm telling you..See how adorable they look together next to the brasilians!
I know I sometimes waffle on about how awesome my plantfam are, but this little glass box-in-progress is a shining example of it:
Planned with the guidance of @mendels.project
Constructed with the help (read: peanut gallery style) from @urb4n_gr33n, who also donated the pellionia
Jewel orchid acquired by @my.plantie.vibes ($+*# love you)
Rhaph cryptantha from my @aussieplantclub homie @pinkandgreenery
Philo Burle Marx Fantasy from my hot bro @growinggrounds
So much love in a little terrarium, and I'm looking forward to watching the love grow 💚🌱
- 30x30x45cm Exo terra front-opening

- the majority of plants are in clear, miniature orchid pots for ease of removal
- sphagnum attached into background trenches with fishing line to create climbing substrate
- sprayed with alternating nutrient solution and pH adjusted, filtered water
- adhesive external heatmat

It’s also #marimomonday ! I got these weird balls because I read they can help with water propagation and you should #alwaysbepropagating ! So far I have not used them for that (I will for my large Monstera leaf cuttings) but they are super easy and interesting and like me thrive on darkness and neglect 😂🤷🏻♀️ After a few weeks of having them derping in vases I thought they could use some friends and that’s why we have fish. But obviously I wasn’t about to stick a fish in a small vase (does anyone even do that still?) so we had to get tanks, and tank plants (yay! 😂🥰🌱) and snails 😅🤷🏻♀️ and shrimp and the list grows. That’s how we ended up with our Bettas #Pitbull and #Fofty 😂 Because your marimo balls need friends. Really they do. 😑🤷🏻♀️😂
Happy #monsteramonday ! My regular Deliciosa, variegated Deliciosa, var Borsigiana, #itsneverobliqua Adansonii, and variegated Standleyana ( with a sunburn because I am a horrible person 😅). I think I missed a couple of babies and some variegated M. Deliciosa and Standleyana cuttings arrive on Wednesday! 😅🥰🖤🤦🏻♀️ Does anyone else lose their plants and have to go hunt room to room to find them? 😂😂🤦🏻♀️😑 Just me? Alright 😂🌱
orchids love this wood shelf so much they’ve started latching the the aeriel roots to it 🤜🏼 #orchids

If you followed yesterday's post... This is the white form of Gazania krebsiana from my local area south east of Gauteng. If you travel to the furthest point of Gauteng province just over the border to Mpumalanga you'll find another colour form that's a creamy/eggshell colour. (post to follow in the near future...) 😎 These are really tough little gems growing in dry soil and getting baked in the warm spring sunshine! 🌟
My Alocasia Wentii made a spathe! It arrived in pretty bad shape and two were rotten but this one survived and it has at least one more ready to pop. 🖤

Happy #sansevieriasunday ! Who’s excited to go back to work tomorrow? Not me, I’m too busy and important for that vulgarity and will be repotting all of my peperomias tomorrow into terracotta pots. On second thought maybe work sounds like less work 😂😑😬
Fish and foliage, the best combination. Especially when the fish have their own foliage 🤗

Saturday morning foliage feels 🥰 That Begonia Rex Jolly Silver helps diffuse the southern afternoon light (with the help of two sets of netting and a willow trellis) to keep the constantly moved around plants happy during this UK fifteenth summer of the year. 🥵
