Lovely pictures to share

We visited Sungai Buloh again.....which is renowned as plants & flowers heaven. Huby has been pestering me for quite a while to agree with him rearing orchid. I was not so keen initially as i dislike the idea of the usage of charcoal in orchid. But since he has been "nice" that afternoon....and in addition to our needs to get a few more pots of 'prosperity plant', i went ahead with his plan.

Lot 28 was a "prosperity plant" heaven...




We love the prosperity plant bcoz it is one of the easiest to take care......at least so far, it was the longest that we could maintained!!



And the boys joined us this time by each of them picking by themselves a pot of baby prosperity plant to rear.....they were excited & treated them as their babies! I hope these plants would grow healthily together with the boys!


Next was our orchids.....i have to admit that they were indeed beautiful and i must say i was late falling in love with them !! Didn't know there were so many types & can be so colourful too.....






Some of the unexpected "picks" were none other than these "Chinese New Year" related plants... some of which i was not aware of the names:


$$$$$$ MONEY Plant


Bamboo something.......????


Another type of bamboo ...????????





Too bad, our "pussy willow" is still outstanding and we will continue to hunt for it !


Since I was busy & can't help snapping pictures of the beautiful flowers at the nurseries, it is just wise that i share them here.

Have a pleasure time viewing them!

The flowers r really beautiful, esp the orchids. I've been wanting to get some flower pots but dunno wat kind to get. They must be ez to maintain, wont grow too big, etc. That's y the garden still empty now. :(

look at those flowers ... they are SO beautiful!

The orchids will be easy to look after so long as they get water and plenty of air. Like the very red/orange prosperity plant, there is also a oure white available but a lot dearer than the reds.
Whose job will it be to look after them?? Jins or the maids!
The plant with the two tone green leaves with yellow edges is also known as the "Mother in Laws tongue" as it is sharp and very hard to kill!!
