Neulich habe ich zufällig entdeckt, dass an meinem Croton (Wunderbaum) was wächst- die Pflanze blüht!
Und in dieser Ecke fehlte definitiv noch was- nach etwas Suchen habe ich auch gefunden, was noch dorthin sollte:
A while ago, I noticed that my Croton was growing something unusual- it has begun to bloom! You can see the results above.
And for the corner opposite the door, there defintely was something missing, so I dug around in my chest of drawers until I found it. *g*
>My new orchid brought its own little biological defense against vermin:
Kinda a “bonsai spider”, LOL!! It is supersized on this picture, the original size is more like the head of a pin.
And here are the others, still flowering happily and in the background the plants with their new bigger pots, settling into their new soil.
>My Crown-of-Thorns is feeling well and showing it, currently:
(It will hopefully ignore that I turned it around for this photo. *g*)
My Croton got company- I wanted another plant with expressive greenery to go with it.
It is a Calathea. Some googling also turned up the complete name: Calathea roseopicta.
Both like it warm from below, which makes them the ideal candidates for my window sills which get very warm when the heating is on.
The little name-tag said that this plant will fold in for “sleeping” at night, I am most curious now.
The second branch with flowers is now starting to bloom seriously:
In the pot live two offshoots and both look most promising. The bigger one even attempts to make a stalk for blooming:
This is the smaller one- the knob in the middle might be the start for a stalk, too:
Almost unearthly fragile and delicate:
A post of somewhat fuzzy cuteness will follow soon, stay tuned.
