Vertical Garden Update

Recollecting history is one difficult work when it really doesn't matter much unless its about showing what works and what don't. At the end of the day - it's more on what you like and what you don't and what's the next thing you want to try your hands on.

The best part was the overgrown Trailing Watermelon begonia that stole the garden,

This is another beautiful element to work with Cascading Effect of Bromeliad leaves.
The layering does so well with orchids that is partially shaded below them.
The challenge was making them bloom - I'm very much contemplating on giving them up, lets just see how they fare in this environment.

I had recently introduced Episcias in this collection and found that they are doing very well in this space. And more excellently springing forth flowers and runners that makes my heart merry.
And there is something new to look forward in seeing new blooms of orchids for a long-term basis and the cherry fiery reds that flames like violets for one day..

And for humour sake, a single Coleus that took the centre-stage this time.
It is very much stuck in that dwarf stage - I wonder if the species is designed as such - as these are planted by seeds and not propagated by cuttings.

I loved the Sygonium species that fares the light lime shades but I started to have trouble of their invasive characteristics and decided to remove them and plant them in a more challenging space where many won't grow. So far..they are doing just fine.

A singular Tradescantia species make a lot of impact when white is introduce as base colour in the midst of red veined leaves.

I thought red leaved Episcias are very difficult care compared to their green and brown versions.
I was so surprised that they are doing so wonderfully here.

More updates coming...
