I'm very sure everyone have more than one frog story. Be it similar to the Frog & the Princess or a fact that many proverbs and legends pertaining them.
My story is simple - I'm fascinated by them. I had more than once rescued all the tadpoles from a puddle and nursed them into baby frogs or toads (really never get to see them once they are out of the water) And they do more good in your garden - keeping all the mosquito at bay.
Not really sure what wrong with my camera setting- I cannot get the right blue in my picture.
The blue that appears to me is mysterious and exotic - here it appeared as a wash-down plastic blue.
Anyway, I wanted to set all the slow growing plants with an exotic look.
These are the plants in the collection:
1) Philodendron Xanadu - planted inside the blue pot
2) Silver Squill - Ledebouria socialis
3) Matchstick Bromeliad - Aechmea gamospepala (I'm guessing - it could be a neoregelia)
4) Cardboard Palm (Cycad) - Zamia Furfuracea
5) Caladium Humboldtii
6) Chinese Evergreen - Aglaonema Valentine
7) Calathea Majestica - (hidden at the back)
Looks like only the Philodendron Xanadu & Cardboard Palms putting up new leafs after planting them in this pot.
I'm glad with my collection coming together with a nice little figurine setting in place.
Right now - the frog is totally hidden - guess it sort of creates a mysterious, secret garden concept thing.
Let me know what you think about this.
