When Opportunity Strikes

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.

Procrastinating .

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!

Welcome to the Fam


New addition - Longan Lada (Chilli) marcotted. A marcotted Avocado Miki is on the way to me now. :D



Tiny harvest of my tiny french beans, they were my dinner last night.

Pictures of the Day

Edamame

 I almost killed my lavendar with fish emulsion!
French beans


Bachelor's Buttons

Longan seedling


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

Hydrangea


Bali Hai Gold Plumeria grows 2 inflos.

The Good and The Bad

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.

New Beginnings

My bachelor's button seedlings. I was told they are potted plants but turned out to be weed-type. >_<

Edamame seedlings.

French beans.

Tiny beans are forming!

A little worried about the new magnolia coco but turned out it's growing new shoots. 

So are my hydrangea.

Balsam plants!

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.

 Avocado seedlings. If I could, I would buy a grafted/marcotted one too. Just take too long to grow from seed and the risk of it not fruiting is too high.
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'.

Seedlings

French beans. Tidied them up with some sticks.

Edamame. 

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 New and The Gones

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.
