I finally remembered to take of a pic of my plant that is loving it at Marsha's. Here are the rest of my plants and I got a Meyer lemon.

Love your air plants Grant, they are so fun to grow. Your ornamental cactus look good too. I brought a brazillian edelweisse or sinningia leucotricha. A very fun plant if I can keep it alive.

Fun!  My garlic chives are in bloom too.  Such fun, durable plants.  Happy gardening all!

The bees were working the cucumber vines today and as always the garlic chive flowers they love them.

The best looking one is still the one living at Marsha's place. It is way too big to bring here til I get the sun porch fixed up. Or the kitchen fixed so I can get all the food prep stuff out of the dinning room. Even then the stupid heat/cool vents are right in front of the windows so need vent deflectors.

Congrats on the bees, Vicky!  That's neat.  Hopefully your houseplants will all settle in and look great soon.  We'd love pics when possible.  Happy gardening all!

My houseplants are hanging in Some stll look really sad from the move. Have food plants under a grow light. My grape ivy think that's it's name is growing like crazy. The spider looks like crap all the tips are dry and it's not a deep green like my friend Deb's was and hers is on the front porch outside.

But I am all excited as we just counted 10 bees on the garlic chives. I had only seen one since I moved here in May.

Oh, by the way, I found these fun bird-and-next ceramic planters this past weekend and a new, local antique mall.  They were only a few dollars each so I purchased them and filled them each with a haworthia plant.  I've accidentally built up quite a flock of these containers, hah, easily into the 30's now, shame on me, LOL.  Happy gardening!

Good luck witth your parents, Marianne.  That can be a real drain.  All the best to you and to them! 

Here's a pair of those larger air plants--one "before" and one "after" being soaked in rain water for 20 minutes.  They're so green and soft after soaking, LOL. 

 

 

Happy gardening all!

Grant
