Hoya Blooms

These blooms time to time.
One of the lovely things that I admire in my garden.

Airplant Collection - Landscape

The recent renovation had caused a big stress my plants especially my Begonias and Airplants.
Here the whole thing became dried and rotted to the core.
I need to reset it again.
Hope they pick up and grow back to its former glory.

Also here are the other airplants which I have in my collection.
Few of these had somehow became matured and died without giving out any pups.
Its a pity that it had to end that way - but in no way means I'm planning to increase my collection
unless they give out pups.

Airplant Collection

These are the current collection that are sitting happily in my garden.
One thing for sure..
They really make it happening with the rest of the gang:
Orchids, Hoya, Dischidia and Bromeliads.

Some sense of uniqueness in the texture and shapes
with the greens and foliage.
Best part - they require minimum care.

Airplant - Gift from a friend

This was passed to me by my friend.
She mentioned that she got some spares and wanted me to have some.
I'm feeling so thankful and very grateful for her kindness.

I had manage to regenerate it.
Submerging and drying it of for few days until the size got bigger.
And eventually I glued it on a stick and tied in together with my collection.

After setting them.
I can't help but wonder..
Why they look so much like a moss.
Strange is it?

Dischidia species

Dischidia is considered something like an acquired taste.
Something that is sought after by collectors who are just seeking for these types of plants.
These are like orchids and hoya - plants that doesn't well on trees.
The only thing is that it is misunderstood as a weed.

Someone else thought it was a parasite.
Another - a wild thing that creeps on branches.
It is indeed an acquired taste.

Not many are sold in the nurseries.
When these are sold - its often identified as a unique plant.
Indeeed Dischidia have yet to make itself popular.
Those who own one will testify that they do feel proud having them.

Because they are not easy to get in the market.

One thing though,
It does trigger childhood memories of something known as "Duit-Duit"
Something that dangles up on the branch and you can't reach to get it.
And that is something I often admire and wish I can get my hands on them.

What do you think?
Do you fancy - creeping, cascading dandling stuff such as these.
Do share your thoughts.
