Day one over and I have already been blown away, sighting so many amazing plants; some known and others an intriguing mystery. But I thought I’d start off with something familiar.
We saw three colours of bougainvillea today: pink, apricot, and white. Who knows what we will see tomorrow.
I’m putting together a larger post that will go up later today, but here’s a preview of the lotus I saw at the Montreal Botanical Gardens back in August.
Unfortunately, I did not record the name of this particular plant when I took its picture. Beautiful foliage, don’t you think?
I bought this strange, vining succulent, Ceropegia linearis ssp woodii, back in August at the Montreal Botanical Gardens.
I’ll have to take some pictures of the leaves as well — they are interesting in their own right. The plant has suffered a bit of legginess over the past few months as I’ve grown accustomed to its light and water needs, but I think it’s in the right spot now. I think the watering issues I’ve been having are on account of the undersized pot it came in. I am not looking forward to the balancing act required to repot this gnarly thing. It’s a disaster in the making.
Despite a rocky start, it has been flowering regularly since I brought it home, and has even produced seeds! I’m curious to see if anything will come of them.
