We had our air-cons serviced so it was a great opportunity to clean up the balcony as we had to move the pots for the service guy to get to the air-con unit. Cleared the leaves off and washed the floor as the service guy had a hose.
Cleaned the wild strawberry plant (it was treated with neem oil solution for whiteflies so it trapped a lot of dust and doghair).
Moved the avocado seedlings to where my adenium was. Adenium is in the house now.
Transplanted the longan into a pot.
Here's how the Ylang Ylang looks like right now in comparison to when I first got her.
Lastly, a throwback. I missed having hydrangea blooms!

I almost killed my lavendar with fish emulsion!
Ylang ylang blooms. I wonder those are seeds!
Magnolia Coco actually came with an Anthurium-look-alike plant. Could be weed
Strawberry survived. This plant has been pretty much abused by my dogs. Odyssey uprooted it whilst Coco eats the leaves
Bali Hai Gold Plumeria grows 2 inflos.

French beans and edamames are growing pretty good.
Can't say the same of my hydrangea and lavender. I made a mistake by giving them fish emulsion.
I made a wrong move by feeding the lavendar fish emulsion.
I left Odyssey at the balcony unattended and she dug out my strawberry planter. Gosh, I hope it survives.

My bachelor's button seedlings. I was told they are potted plants but turned out to be weed-type. >_<
Tiny beans are forming!
A little worried about the new magnolia coco but turned out it's growing new shoots.
So are my hydrangea.
Lemon is also growing shoot. I need to check if it's grafted with the seller tomorrow!
I'm already thinking to grow longan and this is just a test since one of the seeds was growing shoot so I planted it. I will definitely be buying a grafted one.
A broken plumeria branch that I found when walking the dogs.
Speaking of dogs, here's Coco and Odyssey sleeping in the car during a long drive home from my parents'.

French beans. Tidied them up with some sticks.
Longan. I was just testing growing from seed. I would buy a grafted/marcotted one from farmer's market when we move to a landed property.
I sowed at least 7 seeds but only 2 germinated.
A variety of Aeonium (valverdense?) that I brought back from Santorini last June.

The replacement to my dying magnolia coco arrived this afternoon. I hope I don't kill her again.
This was the old one.
On a happier note, a Malaysian Red Plumeria that I saw at the nursery while picking up the new hydrangea. By the way, there are only 4 varieties of plumerias left in my balcony. My Malaysian Red died too. I will wait until we move to a landed house before starting my plumeria collection again.
Eucalyptus that I picked from a local florist to decorate home as we are having guest over.
