I don't know the name of this plant. I have bought it for ages and this is one of the few pots that I have propagated from the mother plant. I don't know what I have done right recently that two pots of this plant actually bloomed for me. It has been a long time since I had blooms from it. I must be getting lucky!
The miniature Ixora in yellow colour also showered me with blooms. After the blooms wilted, I have given this plant a good trim here and there to keep it neat and lush.
I love Costus! They are always blooming and the vibrant, red flower can last for weeks. I intend to propagate more of this so I can have more Costus to brighten up the garden!
My Amaryllis has given me 4 big blooms on one plant! This looks gorgeous! How I wish I could have such beautiful bloom in my garden everyday!
This plant was bought from Mrs. Lim in the wet market at SS2. I just cannot resist to take this baby home! The purple colour is so enticing. And the blooms remind me of orchid. Can anyone help me with the name of this plant?
Added on 10 May 2010: Thanks to Stephanie of Steph's Green Space blog who informed me that this plant is named Plectranthus Mona Lavender. A name that is as gorgeous as its blooms! To help me remember all this beautiful names of plants, I will make name tags for them when I can find time and do some research on the plant maintenance.
Lantana ~ it's my first time growing one! I got them from Mrs. Lim too. Love those clusters of bright yellow!! They just perk me up whenever I look at them in the morning! What a positive way to start a day!
After seeing these big blooms on my Adenium, I decided to carry this big pot of Adenium to our new house. I left this Adenium trunk to grow tall and now it is more than 6 feet in height. To keep the tall branches steady, especially now that we often get evening shower, I tied them to the bigger plant.
