Phalaenopsis Without Dye or Stake
Here's one of these new-fangled cloned Phals without the dye, and without the stake. What do you think?

Meet Anacampseros rufescens!
If you like "herbaceous small subshrubs" (thank you, Doreen Court, now say it 10 times fast!)  in your garden, you'll love Anacampseros rufescens: Anacampseros rufescens, M Robb, 2015 I just love dwarf shrublets, and this one is very pretty. A. rufescens gr...

Orchids and Acrylics
Just another beautiful Phal bloom and a garden painting for the start of the weekend: Phal in Bloom, MR, March 2015 Sun Garden, MRobb, 2014 This weekend I'll be posting about a wonderful new South African plant; I've never grown one before, so I was very ha...

Painting Over Plants
It's been miserable, wet and cold here for days, so I've been doing more painting than gardening. Peacock, detail, M Robb, 2015, watercolor Paintings are funny things. Sometimes, one is just ready to be born, and it's finished in a matter of hours, or days:...

Some Flowers for the Weekend
One of my rescue Phalaenopsis has bloomed. I had no idea what color its flowers would be, or if it would flower again at all, as the roots were pretty rotten when I took it home. Imagine my happy surprise when I saw the flowers were...green! Green-blooming ...

I Think They Dye Them....
I've been doing shibori (Japanese resist-dyeing) for decades now and I should have known a Dye Job when I saw one. I just wasn't expecting to find one at the garden center. What's different about these two sets of phal orchids? The orchids at the top of the...

Lithops Releaf-a-rama 2015!
If it's spring, it must be time for a Lithops Party. Lithops don't get very excited about anything, and they sure don't party much. But once, in spring (for most), they get crazy and re-leaf. Here are two of mine doing just that.... Lithops Releaf-a-rama 20...

More Orchids and Acrylics
I couldn't resist adding one more photo to the group. Pretty much all my Phals are in bloom now, and I have a couple of paintings-in-process that make great backgrounds for them. This pretty, speckled white Phal gets an oceanic background for her portrait: ...

Tillandsia Display for Fun and Creativity
Tillies don't need dirt, and that makes them soooo versatile when it comes to indoor display. As long as they have good air circulation and decent light, they're good. You need to be able to water them properly (mistings and soaks), so I don't recommend glu...

Lithops in the Mist
Quite by accident, I came to note that Lithops, at least young Lithops, like a nice morning mist. The young Lithops that I grew from seed are about 2 years old now, and they live near my Tillie Towers, which get a daily morning misting: Detail of a Tillie T...

Growing Non-Native Plants: TLC or Tough Love?
My herbology teacher and I got into a debate about growing non-native plants in our gardens. Not about growing nasty invasives, cuz' we don't do that, just useful plants that didn't evolve here in the New World tropics. We have different Philosophies of Gar...
