Six on Saturday (14.09.2019)

Catharanthus roseus

It went through some neglect because of the construction work that was going on in our roof. But it’s thriving since being placed on the roof. She’s full of pink blooms. The white one is also blooming but not as vigorously as the pink one. New seedlings are popping up everywhere. So many new seedlings that we have to take some of them out. Thinking of giving some of them away in weekly plant group get together.

Dragon fruit

It’s kind of new in our country but they do really well in our weather. Last year we had enough dragon fruits to even share with our relatives. This year because of the construction work on our roof these plants spent most of this season in shade. But even in the end of the season they produced these fruits after being placed on the roof. They do well in full sun and require less water than the other plants we have.

Syzygium samarangense

Each year these wax apple plants produce a lot of fruits. This year after being kept in the shade for so long we feared that we might lose them. But most of them survived. The new growth looks beautiful. We lost one plant that had red fruits. I really miss that plant.

Clematis terniflora

I bought this from the tree fair this year. At first it looked very tired. But after it put on some new growth, it’s been flowering constantly. The flowers are very fragrant and beautiful.

Euphorbia milii

For a while I was thinking about propagating my Euphorbia. I started this plant from a cutting my dad got me. He also received that cutting as a gift. Now it’s a bushy plant that blooms repeatedly. It’s the variety with big red flowers. I planted 6 cuttings in mid August. Kept them in a brightly lit area. 5 of them are still alive and growing new leaves.

Pothos

I just love pothos. They are so easy to care for. They can take a lot of neglect which I’m guilty of. Recently I wanted some plants to keep indoors. I never keep any plants indoors even if they are perfect for it. I started to propagate some pothos cuttings in a small pot also in mid August. I was hoping to keep them indoors after they put on some growth. Pothos cuttings usually doesn’t take that long to grow. Some of them are putting on growth. But some might not make it because of the repeated attacks of my niece and nephew. Now they are in a more protected space, out of their reach.

I started this golden queen variety of pothos from again a cutting my dad gave me. It’s one of the very first things I planted in my balcony. And now it’s taken over most of the balcony.

These are my six on Saturday. For more information and blogs check out the host https://thepropagatorblog.wordpress.com/

    Your plants are an exotic looking bunch, particularly that dragon fruit flower. I don’t think I’d be able to grow any of them where I live.

      Thank you very much . At first we were doubtful if dragon fruit would do well here.
