I had bought this varigated ivy a month ago. Look so lushful here, compared to the first time when I got it (the plant was around the pot perimeter)
Now, its all grown all over.
My temporary side garden
(I had removed all my coleus, they didn't survive this season)
I had given to my friends after all them had matured.
Notice my flame violet - falling all over the hanging pot - it still my best plant now.
This is a picture after few months April 2009 (notice the dumbcane had grown)
you can compare it from the picture (last at the below - taken on Dec 2008
Due to rain and humidity, the pebbles had collected moss.
something which I considered rare...
(rolling stones collects no moss...what a proverb)
These are 2 pots of cycas which I bought from a supermarket.
I thought their names where "lady palm tree" but found out that these are not palm.
I checked in google (fern like palm) and found that these are known as cycas.
Some "mother in law tongue" varigated species. I have two species here - one have a yellow centre and the other a green centre - colours of the leaf.
I had passed this species to a friend and she had planted it indoors - found out that the whole plant turned green. I guess the yellow pigment has a lot to do with sunshine.
These are temporary potted plants. The coleus doesn't last more than few months. And so, I have to constantly change the landscaping in this area.
So clean & clear - right now, it doesn't look as I first started it.
The "old man's beard" and "Fluffy ruffle fern" gives the flowing look. Very nice when seen from the angle - Entrance glass door from my house.
